Authors After Dark 2014 Reading Challenge.

Welcome to the Authors After Dark 2014 Reading Challenge and Sign up Page.
Hosted by Midnyte Reader and Bookswagger.

The goal of this challenge is to let readers, whether you are going to AAD 2014 in Charlotte, NC, or not, get better acquainted with some of the authors who will be attending this event.

Sometimes I go to conferences that feature authors who I am unfamiliar with. Then, when I read their books later I want to kick myself for not reading their work sooner, so I could have talked to them about their stories, gotten a book signed or just gushed properly.

Stella Price, the organizer of Authors After Dark was kind enough to give me the green light to host the challenge again this year and Robin from RLD Design, the AAD website designer provided the button.  Thank you Stella and Robin!

I challenge myself to read a book from the authors coming to the small event in Berlin, Germany, so I can have my books signed. That makes it so much more fun, and I have discovered some new favourite authors to read. And they are so nice in person!

@Aurian-Yes, I agree. It does make signings more fun when you know more of what the authors wrote.

Can I carry over books from the 2013 challenge to 2014? I haven't gotten as far as I had hoped. :D
