Of the 109 books I read in 2012, 78 of them were by 77 authors that were new to me. Some of these authors are well established and I'm a little embarrassed I've not tried them before now (e.g., Val McDermid, Agatha Christie - though I've watched dozens of TV adaptations of their books). Some were debut authors. Of this list, I'd be more than happy to read another book by all of them and that is precisely my plan this year - to try and catch-up with back catalogues and new offerings of authors I've read before, as well as discover some new authors. I already have books by half a dozen or so of the below list on my to-be-read pile.
