The 2k8 Challenge is being hosted by Teen Book Review. The goal is to read MG/YA novels (Middle Grade and Young Adult novels for those not in the know) by authors who are making their debut in 2008. 28 2008 authors make up the official Class of 2k8. But there will be many more authors that would be eligible, I would imagine. (The class fills up fast from what I've heard.) But here is the "official" class roster:
Middle Grade Authors
Young Adult AuthorsBarker, M.P.
Bunce, Elizabeth C.
Fischer, Debbie Reed
Set your own number, at least 8 books, as 28 is too much for some people. Read them all by the end of 2008. You can post a list now if you like, or you can wait and see what great books you come across. They count for other challenges, too.
I'm going to try for 12. But 8 might do in a pinch. I'd *love* to get to 28. But we'll have to wait and see.
