LibraryThing Author Challenge 2008

About a month ago now, I came across Dawn’s LibraryThing Author Challenge on her blog, She Is Too Fond of Books, and I’ve been meaning to officially join ever since. So here goes...

Given that the challenge ends on November 30, I’m not going to attempt to read any new LT authors, just ones whose books I already own. I have six possible candidates:

It is highly unlikely that I’ll read them all, but we’ll see!

Other books by LT authors that I’ve already read (though not within the time period of this challenge) are:

This is my first official challenge! Check out Dawn’s post for all the details. It’s not too late to join!


  1. Yay, Avis! I'm glad you joined us ... good luck with your reading :) I'll update my home page, and post a full review of everyone's progress at the end of October.

  2. Great list, Avis. I know so many people who absolutely loved Beautiful Lies.


  3. You have a treat in store if you get to read the Sandra Gulland book and also Mudbound.

    Good luck with the challenge.

  4. Good luck. I have The 19th Wife and The Wednesday Sisters to read. I read Mudbound and really loved it. It was a good story.

  5. Thanks everybody for your encouragement! I'm particularly glad to hear that Beautiful Lies is a good read, Shana, because I don't know anything about that author. I'll also post a progress report at the end of the month!
