I forgot to say in my 2006 wrap-up that I tried 36 new-to-me authors last year. That's 36 out of 86, or 42%. YAY me! Really that is seriously amazing for someone who used to re-read books by the same four people over and over. I used to be scared. Now not so much.
New-to-me authors I discovered this year that I'm looking forward to glomming in 2007: Jo Beverley, Anne Stuart, Connie Brockway, Carla Kelly, and J.D. Robb. All with lovely big backlists.
Anyone else have any good author discoveries this year?
