Lacey Camey, author of The Last Page, introduced me to this really neat challenge today. The goal is to read 24 indie authors, each with a last name that starts with a different letter of the alphabet (yes, there are 26 letters in the alphabet. This challenge lets you skip 2). I'm going to keep track of my progress here. You can check out the complete rules at the ABC Indie Fiction Challenge Sign UP.
A) Arenson, Daniel Blood of Requiem *****
B) Buecheler, Christopher The Blood That Bonds ****
D) Dalglish, David Weight of Blood (The Half-Orcs, Book 1) ***
E) Eaton, Stacy My Blood Runs Blue *****

Note: I've decided to stop fretting about this as of 9-18-11. I will participate again next year, but having started 5 months late, I lost out on a lot of time and focusing solely on the last name makes me miss out on a lot of books I really want to read. For the rest of the year, I'm just going to read for fun.
TBR- To Be Read
* Crap. Can't believe I read it.
** Mostly crap, but I didn't want to hurt myself.
*** Eh, ok. Could have been better.
**** Really good.
***** OMG, you have to read this!!
