New Authors Challenge—Challenge yourself to read a certain amount of books by "new-to-you authors". A lot of members have expressed an interest in this one and have discovered new favorite authors!

This challenge is a year long challenge.


Levels:

• New kid on the block– 2 new authors
• Looking for new – 3-10 new authors
• True blue and new – 11-19 new authors
• Newsies – 20-35 new authors
• Fresh and new- 36-49 new authors
• A stunning debut- 50+ new authors

Bonus-
•Gold Star level- you reach this level if you have at least 5 of the authors that you have read are DEBUT authors (meaning it's their first book published)

As always you can track your progress here or on the reading tracker- live Jan 1-https://www.goodreads.com/challenges/...

Let us know if you are "in" for this one and if so, which level you would like to try for?
