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!
