2020 New (to me) Author Challenge

I've done this challenge for the past tenyears and discovered some great new-to-me authors along the way (not hard to believe since I've read 595 new (to me) authors in that time). It's fun for me to look back on these lists, especially when I see authors who are now auto-buys for me.

The Challenge: Read 20 or more books this year by authors you’ve never read before.
