Awesome Author Book Challenge

As I mentioned before I have been following several fun book bloggers.  This week I discovered some of their “challenges”.  I have decided to join this challenge you see below.  If you are interested in checking this out see the link below the pic. 
The idea behind this challenge is to read works by authors who have been recommended to you time and again, yet somehow you haven’t managed to read any books by those authors. These are the authors that everyone else tells you are awesome, thus the “Awesome Author Challenge” title.

The Rules:

The challenge starts January 1, 2010 and ends December 31, 2010.
Crossover from other challenges is allowed.
Choose the level at which you would like to participate, post about it and come back and leave a link to your post in Mister Linky.
Titles and authors do not have to be predetermined, and can change at any time.
Books can come from any genre or reading level, the only requirement is that you have heard great things about the author, but haven’t yet read any of their works.

The Levels:

Easy: Choose three authors and read at least one title from each author.
Moderate: Choose six authors and read at least one title from each author.
Challenging: Choose ten authors and read at least one title from each author.
Over-Achieving: Anything over ten authors.

Here is my list thus far:  (Rather lofty, we will see if I actually get close to accomplishing this 🙂

Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Magaret Atwood
Neil Gaiman
Cormac McCarthy
Phillip Roth
Salman Rushdie
Toni Morrison
William Faulkner
Scott Westerfeld
