I  received my books yesterday for a book judging contest.  This is my second year as a judge.  Since I am an avid reader it fits right into my lifestyle.  At the same time it exposes me to authors that I may not usually read.  How much fun!   As an aspiring author myself, this also becomes a learning opportunity.  As a perk, I will get to keep all of the autographed books.  I only have 6 weeks to read the four novels so I better get busy.  I only have to decide which one to start first!
