Interesting! Never would have thought of this one. I have heard of debut novels, but never game much mind to sophomore books (the second book published by an author). As the challenge host states, what an awesome way to support and up and coming author - reading their debut is wonderful, but their second book even better!
The Sophomore Reading Challenge is a commitment to read 10 Sophomore Young Adult or Middle Grade novels in 2012. I want to give this a whirl. Are you going to join me?
