The Books-in-a-Series Challenge

WTH!  I'm always a sucker for setting reading challenges for myself.  For example, I ALWAYS set a goal to read 100 books each year...I have yet to reach it, but I did make it to 80something a couple of years ago.  If you saw my previous post, you'll see that I'm doing the TBR (to be read) Challenge.  This is a second try for me.  The last time I tried it, I got through about 2/3 of the books on my list of 14 (12 plus 2 alternates) and petered out because I wasn't in the mood to read the others.  Still read a lot that year, just not off my preset list.  All this by way of saying that reading series is tons of fun, so I'm going to keep track.  Yay...it's another list!!  Join me if  you're interested, or just give me input.

  1. I love your book lists! I think I've read almost all of those Catherine Coulter ones. A couple of the Bournes and I've read several of the "A is for Alibi" - can't remember the author but she goes through the whole alphabet I think.
