Unread Authors Challenge

I found a new challenge through Wendy's blog. It's Unread Authors Challenge I have enough books lying around my house to find 6 that qualify. Plus I'll be getting 3 more (so far) for my book clubs. So, I have no doubt my list could be doubled by the time the challenge begins in September.

But for now, my books are:

1.) The Jungle by Upton Sinclair
2.) The Locket by Richard Paul Evans
3.) Rose's Garden by Carrie Brown
4.) The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
5.) Notes on a Scandal by Zoƫ Heller
6.) Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier

September can't get here soon enough. These look like some good books.

Update: February 29

I'm afraid I didn't stick to my list. I joined the 888 challenge and some of my books got reassigned. But since I have plenty of books I just tossed some into this. My final list is here. I got The Jungle and Rose's Garden. But I messed up and grabbed the wrong two books to finish the Fall into Reading 2008 Challenge. So I substitted the two I missed here. They were Frankenstein and Playing for Pizza. And for forgotten reasons I rouded out with Shoot the Moon and A Widow for One Year.
Lots of good books on this list.

This is a great list, Kimmie! I too have been meaning to read "The Jungle" and "Cold Mountain" for YEARS, and "Notes on a Scandal" has also (more recently) crept sneakily onto my to be read shelves.

Meanwhile, you should feel free to start the challenge early, if you like, or to change/add to the list as you go along. I'm not strict, challenge-wise. :)

I am so glad that you joined us!

Cold Mountain is a great pick! I'm reading his Thirteen Moons for Joy's second chance challenge.

I picked up "the alchemist" the other day at a book fair only to realize that its not the same author! I'm so disappointed...

I hope to join in on this challenge too and am working on my list. I thought I'd visit other bloggers who are taking up the challenge to see what everyone is planning to read.

Notes of a Scandal is one I've been wanting to read. I'll have to consider that one.

The Alchemist is a great little book. I hope you will enjoy it.
