Awesome Author Challenge 2011

**Challenge completed.**

Dates: 1 January - 31 December 2011
Host: Alyce of At Home With Books

Guidelines (quoted from the announcement/sign-up page):
  • Read works from authors that are completely new to you (you haven't read any of their writing before).
  • Read books that have been recommended by friends, bloggers, or books that have been on your TBR forever because you have heard that the author's writing is fantastic.
  • Crossover from other challenges is allowed.
  • Titles and authors do not have to be predetermined, and can change at any time.
  • Books can come from any genre or reading level, the only requirement is that you have heard great things about the author, but haven't yet read any of their works.
  • Choose from these Reading Levels:
    ~ Simply Awesome - 3 to 6 Books
    ~ Totally Awesome - 6 to 10 Books
    ~ Blinded By Overexposure to Awesomeness - Over 10 Books
✸ I signed up at the "Simply Awesome" Level, and read 6 books.
