2011 Debut Author Challenge

The 2011 Debut Author Challenge kicks off in January but since I love to plan ahead I thought I would list my challenge books now. The DAC is hosted by The Story Siren and you can read all the details of the challenge there. The goal is to read at least 12 books in the Young Adult or Middle Grade genre from debut authors published in 2011. You can sign up for the challenge now or anytime in 2011. This challenge is a lot of fun and a great opportunity to discover new authors. Thanks Kristi for hosting the challenge!
