Dawn (Kat N Hat) (katnhat) As Easy As...1-2-3! January Monthly-Mini Challenge
From: January 1st- 31st 2013

description


This challenge is an ongoing monthly mini-challenge to keep us all motivated to start, (and then continue), some of the many series in our TBR.

Rules:

1) You must read one of each; a 1st, 2nd, and a 3rd book in a series.

2) Any genre of series is acceptable.

3) 'Half-step' short-stories (i.e., shorts in anthologies), do not count.
**For uniformity, the numbering on GR will be the judge of this.**

4) Rereads do count.

5) No more than 2 of the 3 books each month can be from the same series.
