New Author Challenge 2009

I know! How many challenges do I think I can do? I don't know! But they are sooo much fun. This one is hosted by LiteraryEscapeism. It's pretty easy.

The idea is to read 50 (or as many as you want) new authors (to you) throughout 2009. Here are the guidelines:
The challenge will run from January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009.
Since this is an author challenge, there is no restriction on choosing your novels. They can definitely be from other challenges. However, the authors must be new to you and, preferably from novels, but anthologies are also a great way to try someone new.
I want this to be an easy challenge, so you state how many new authors you want to try this year and then that’s your challenge.

I'm going to try for 20 new authors for me! I already have several in my TBR pile! **rubs hands together in anticipation*
I'll be posting the list of new authors here as well as tagging the reviews as (NAC09).
