I love to read new authors. I really don't think I can read 40 new authors but let's say 15 for me.

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?
