Celebrate the Author Challenge

Becky of Becky's book reviews is hosting a Celebrate the Author challenge. The challenge is to celebrate author's birthday's by reading one of their books: 12 authors - 12 months = 12 books. The challenge runs from January 1st through December 31st, 2010. Not difficult, right. You can read the books in any order you like, but I'll probably be reading them in their birthday month. It took me some time to figure out which authors I wanted to read and what books I wanted to read. I gave myself one goal however. The books had to be one that have been on my shelves and just have not gotten around to reading. I've come up with an interesting list and look forward to reading the stories.

January: Wilkie Collins 1/8/1824 - The Moonstone

February: Charles Dickens 2/7/1812 - David Copperfield

March: Sarah Ruskin 3/13/1928 - Westing Game

April : Lois Duncan 4/28/1934 - Don't Look Behind You

May: Daphne DuMaurier 5/13/07 - The House on the Strand

June: Dorothy Sayers 7/13 - Unnatural Death

July: Robert Liparulo 7/12/56 - Comes a Horseman

August: Sharon Kay Penman 8/13/1945 - When Christ and His Saints Slept

September: Leo Tolstoy 9/9/1828 - Anna Karenina

October: Nora Roberts 10/10/50 Pick from shelves
