Celebrate the Author Challenge

Becky is hosting the Celebrate the Author Challenge again. I didn't do it in 2008 but noticed lots of people were doing it, so I'm going to be sure I get on the bandwagon this time! Visit the challenge blog for more info and to sign up, but here it is in a nutshell:

It is a twelve month challenge. January - December 2009.
The challenge is designed to “celebrate” author birthdays. Choose one author for each month of the year. Read at least one book a month. 12 authors. 12 birthdays.

Here's my starter list, I'm trying to focus on my fave authors, since they deserve celebrating for all the reading pleasure they've given me over the years!
