  1. I am considering the challenge. I love new authors. My fear is I may not be able to fulfill the challenge. I've not tried a challenge before. I don't want to fail because I don't have enough time to read all the books vie committed to.

  2. Thank you so much for adding HOURGLASS! I hope you enjoy it! :D

  3. 2011 does look pretty fantastic for debuts!
