I've just decided to join the New Author Challenge 2010. My goal is to read 15 books by new-to-me authors. It's hosted by Literary Escapism, and you can read about the challenge here. I'm counting the book I finished a few days ago as my first for the challenge - The Heretic's Daughter by Kathleen Kent. And the book I'm reading now, Waiting by Ha Jin, will be my second for this challenge.
