My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

A. A. Milne

My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

Will also try for 30, but may revise it upward since this one sounds easy. Will be tracking them on this thread.

I read several Indie authors so this will be a good one for me.

I thought we could just keep track of them in this thread; not sure how to set it up as a team goal since not everyone will have the same goal.

Where to track our results? I posted the goals on my Spark Page for this one and books read in 2015, and I think I can add them to my start page as "other goals" just wasn't sure if you were changing team goals to reflect 2015 challenges. Don't want to reinvent the wheel if I don't have to :)

I'll go for 12, one per month. My reading interests are all over the place so it shouldn't be hard to find 12 new to me authors :)

This is to challenge ourselves to discover authors we haven't read before; they do not have to be debut authors, but any author that is "new to you"; even Jane Austen or Charles Dickens can be counted, if you have never read them before.

So, how many "New to You" authors will you challenge yourself to read this year?
