Twenty Christian authors I haven't read before... after the new-to-me ones I've read this year...

I don't qualify for the contest because I live in Canada, but thanks for giving me something to think about. I'll be watching to see which authors you list, to see who to add to my own list.

Great idea!

What if I saw the contest, live in the US but do not have a blog? Is there any way of those of us to participate or is it only for those with blogs?
Thanks for your help.

I just added a post to be part of your challenge. I do not live in the USA but am from there. This probably does not count, but I can get mail in the USA and have it brought to me.

Regardless, I thought it was a good challenge. I posted a review of one of my new authors for this year below my post on taking the challenge.

Monique said...

This seems cool! I'll join next year when it opens again. Enjoy y'all!

Michelle Sutton said...

Even thought I'm late entering, I'm going to do the challenge since I've kept track of all the books I've read dating back to January, so I can swing it. I will list the new to me authors at http://edgyinspirationalauthor.blogspot.com

Edna said...

I am late in entering also and don't quite understand how to do it, I put the button on my blog and I also am in the contest to read 100 books this year and already read 103 and a lot of them are new authors to me, so how do I list this? Also when I put the button on my blog and clicked it, it did not go anywhere, said the blog did not exist.

My list will be on my second blog http://edna-myfavoritethings2.blogspot.com
