well some of us have listed our Top 5 Authors in the Top 5 Authors thread, but yeah it's own personal TOP 5 Author that you enjoy reading.

lol aww you don't have to go by your list Laura. If you other authors that you substitute that's fine.


message 12: by Laura Lulu (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) I'll live. :) I'm thinking about skipping August for monthly challenges :gasp: since I have so many longer challenges that I need to finish. With all the quarterly & yearly challenges I'm doing, I'm finding it hard to make stuff fit into monthly challenges as we get closer to the end of the year. :)

Crikey, Laura! More power to ya girl! I know my challenge addiction wouldn't let me give up a challenge. I think I would go through withdrawals! As it is, sometimes I dream about new challenge ideas. I have a notebook that a I keep them in and try and throw out suggestions when they seem appropriate. I know, I'm pathetic!


message 14: by Laura Lulu (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) I know. We'll see how well I hold out in not doing any August ones. I have joined & finished every monthly challenge since last October, and I've kinda burned myself out on them a bit. Plus, I have GR friends who aren't challenge freaks like I am, and they're always "let's read blah blah blah next!" and I'm like "Hold on! Let me see if I can switch around my challenges!" And then they all laugh at me. ;) It'll be nice to just read whatever I want for a month. :)

message 17: by Ann aka Iftcan (new)

Ann aka Iftcan (iftcan) I'm like Laura Lulu. I've read everything out there by my top 5 favs. Even by the top 5 favs in OTHER categories. (Mystery, Adventure, Sci-fi, Fantasy) So basically I'll just select books for this category. Unless of course, one of my favs has a NEW work coming out in August. And I think that at least 1 has. If I do that, I might not get finished til the end of August. But hey, I can do that, really I can. I'll just have to work on all my OTHER challenges til then. :o)
