Becky at Becky's Book Reviews is sponsoring a Celebrate The Author Challenge throughout 2008.   Participants will celebrate the birth of their favorite authors by choosing one author per month (based, of course, on the month the author was born).   I began with the books on my TBR pile, and used the Author Birthday/Web Directory to fill in the empty months. 

January: Philippa Gregory - The Boleyn Inheritance (completed 1/5/2008 - review)
February:  Carson McCullers - The Heart is a Lonely Hunter (completed 2/12/2008 - review)
March: Dave Eggers - What is the What (completed 3/18/2008 - review)
April: Barbara Kingsolver - Animal, Vegetable, Miracle (completed 4/13/2008 - review)
May: Peter Carey - Oscar and Lucinda (completed 5/8/2008 - review)
June: Salman Rushdie - Midnight's Children (completed 6/8/2008 - review)
July: Per Petterson - Out Stealing Horses (completed 7/13/2008 - review)
