- Show your appreciation for an author you love who has branched out into one or more genres that you haven't tried yet, and read at least one of those books.

- Show your appreciation of authors who go the extra mile and do something extra (like include a recipe or short story at the back of the book or on their website) and read the book (and then make the recipe or read the short story).

- Show your appreciation of new authors by reading a book by a "New 2 U" author who has been highly recommended to you by your family and/or friends and that you've never read a book by. (If this option interests you, check out our New 2 U challenge by Clicking Here 

- Show your appreciation of authors who team up to write a book or series by reading one of their collaborations (anthologies don't count).
