For those of you participating in the 2017 TBR Challenge, this is a reminder that your commentary is "due" on Wednesday, February 15. This month's theme is New-to-You Author (an author you haven't read before).
If you're like me between recommendations from friends, debut authors, and impulse grabs at conferences and thrift stores - there are plenty of options to choose from here. But what if you're risk adverse and your TBR is only filled with tried-and-true authors you've read before? Hey, no problem! Remember: the themes are optional! The whole point of the TBR Challenge is to read something, anything, that has been languishing for far too long.
You can find more information about the challenge, and see the list of participants, on the 2017 Information Page. (And it's not too late to sign-up!)
