I'm not worthy sensei.

Wow. It looks like I missed out on a lot of things going on here overnight! I will set up my finish series challenge later on and I'm happy to say it is not as scary looking as Bill's.


message 11: by Solseit (new)

Solseit | 1456 comments This thread makes me feel a lot better about my unfinished series!
There is an Italian saying that goes: shared difficulties, half joy (very rough translation).

At the very least we are in a very similar place! I will totally add my own personal tracker, it will make things a lot easier to be updated!

Actually, yes! I usually have this problem when I really love a series and I do not want to finish it - to be able to stay in that place as long as possible!

I'm down to 22 incomplete sadly because I didn't like the Steel Remains and have abandoned the series.

Back up to 23 reading Acacia: The War with the Mein. In my defense I needed to read it to finish and A-Z challenge. Authors with the last name D are harder than you would think. I made it additionally hard by doing the challenge completely with books containing at least some fantasy even if that was historical fiction with some mysticism mixed in.

Tosh Wow Scott - quite the lists you have there. Good luck:)

I'm afraid to see how many incomplete series I have, but I think I'll set up a challenge for myself soon.

So I'll be on a roll of three books in a row that either complete series or bring them up to what the author has published. After that I'm doing three books in a row where I'm bringing series closer to completions. I feel like Roger Rabbit where if somebody says shave and a haircut I'll be bursting to say two bit. I just see so much in my TBR that I want to tackle. The funny part is all 6 books in this stretch of open series work will all end up being awesome.

Well, I haven't decided if I want to continue The Vagrant, but if you ever get to it I may join you.

Down to 21 incomplete. Acacia was a struggle to get through. I may revisit it down the line but with so much I want to read I can't justify it right now.

I liked the Vagrant. I'll do the Malice once the price comes down.

Right above the comment box on the right side there are two links: "add book/author" and "(some html is ok)." Use the add nook/author one. The (some html is ok) also has a lot of handy tricks to format your comments.

I took my undecided series and split them into either abandoned or incomplete. This brings my total back up to 28 incomplete.

That wasn't my motivation but it does help. I wish I liked them more than I do. The endings were good in both books. I have such a large TBR I just can't see getting back to them any time soon. Maybe in a few years I'll revisit it.

Yep first time over that threshold in a year. I probably have two dozen audio books which is what makes a number like that attainable. I do have seven Malazan books in that total of which the word counts average out to about 325K which is like reading a trilogy of something like Riyeria each book.

You could still hit 150 for the year.

Margret | 3170 comments Mod
If I didn't have audiobooks I'd probably only have read like 50 or something ;)

So you're totally rocking it considering all the doorstopper Malazan books and all!

And another thing I will say is that audiobooks work wonderfully for drowning out the crying while bouncing babies on the exercise ball during "gassy hour"

Audio books are mostly my commute but also if it sucks out and I'm pushed onto the dreadmill I'll listen there as well.

Finished The Spider's War the 5th and final book in Dagger & Coin. This is the second series I've completed since the challenge started. More importantly the first series in this group that's been read from start to finish. Special thanks to my running mate Emma was went the distance.

Of course to offset this I started Mage's Blood the first of four books in the Moontide Quartet like any good addict would.

Book one was a good opening effort at 3.5*'s. I did it on audio and the narrator is one I like and have done several series with him.

It's a tough balance with all the group reads causing new series to spawn. I think there will come a month when I'll end up finishing or bringing up to date a lot at once. Probably post Malazan.
