ROTR2018 BooksReaders on the River is 46 days away and I am on a mission. The Mission is to read at least one book from each other. Not hard right? Let’s make this a challenge! Keeping that in mind, below is a list of all the authors, the last book I read from them or if I haven’t read them, the book I plan to read.

With all that being said, unless there is some miracle, I won’t be able to meet each of these authors, nor get each of their signatures. There just isn’t enough time to do it all. Some are guaranteed because they control the lines as they expect a lot of readers to be in those lines and even at the event they sometimes will take an open line and turn it into a controlled line.

I will go more into etiquette and strategy in another blog post. But since I can’t get all the authors, I need to have them all read so I can talk to the ones I do meet. Oh, and there are other meet ups for authors, they just don’t encourage autographs at those events.

Above is a photo for all the books I had at ROTR 2018 – a lot of them are purchased, but I also got a lot of free books, some sign and some not signed. You can see my wristbands in some of the books as I was organizing.

Let’s get back to what I plan on reading and making it a challenge for me to get it all done by September 13, 2019 – yep that’s Friday the 13th! The only rule I have is that I have to read at least one book by every author. It doesn’t matter when it was released, if it is in the middle of a series, or anything. I just want to be able to talk to each author about a book I have read of theirs.

Shari is the Delighted Reader. Married to her Prince Charming and mother to two Princesses and one Prince. When she is not slaving away as Cinderella she loves to get lost in the pages of a good book. Never without a reading device and a few good paperback books, because she never knows when she might get 5 minutes to read!
