Basically, the idea here is to read books by the 2010 Debs. A list of all books by all members of The Debutante Ball can be found on their blog. The Debutante Ball is a group blog for debut authors, all women. The blog is currently in its fourth year and has a track record of debuting some really great authors. You can join at the 1, 3 or 5 book level. I will be joining at the 5 and hoping to get my hands on all the books! The challenge runs January 1, 2010 – December 31, 2010.
The Previous Debs Challenge
I’m sure you can all guess, but the idea here is to read books from the PREVIOUS Debs. Again, ALL books by these ladies can be found on the Debutante Ball books page. You’ll notice on that page that the author’s debut book is followed by (Deb 20xx), indicating which year they were originally part of the Debutante Ball. You can sign up for this portion at different levels of the challenge but are asked to make at least some of the books you read the author’s actual debut book. The challenge runs January 1, 2010 – December 31, 2010. You can sign up to read 2, 4, 6, or 8 books. I will be signing up for 8.
Also you need to be reading and commenting on the Debutante Ball Blog! Ready for this one…I am making my list right now. Who else is joining?
