This is for those of us who love reading series novels. A bit tricky since that can mean anywhere from 3 to 30 novels! So you just need to choose a series and set a goal. Graphic novel series are welcome.

The Plan...
Level 1: Grab A Spoon: 3-4 books/volumes of the same series
Level 2: Pour The Milk: 5-10 books/volumes of the same series
Level 3: Crunch! Crunch! Crunch!: more than 10 books/volumes in a single series read this year

-You can do this for more than one series, but you need to post them separately.
-You don't have to read the entire series. For example, You may choose to read the first 3-4 books of one series, then start a new challenge with a different series. Depending on your reading habits.
-Also, you don't have to start with the first book in the series, as long as you have at least 3 books still to read. For example, I've already read 11 books of O'Brian's Aubrey-Maturin series, but there are more than 20 in the series, so I could start with Book 12 and go from there.

Michael | 26 comments Can’t promise I will undertake this one, but If I do it will probably be in The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson or the Gabriel Allan series by Daniel Silva.

Same here!


message 12: by Michael (new)

Michael | 26 comments I would recommend the In The President's Service series by my friend Ace Collins. If you like wartime fiction with a female protagonist, and plenty of action but no cliched romance, this is definitely for you!

Good Luck - I'll watch from sidelines. Unless I get the nerve to look for a new series to read - which means a trip to Barnes and Noble/Amazon. I will mention this one to my daughter she is always reading series.


message 14: by [deleted user] (new)

Unfortunately, I have to wait until the third book of the series comes out around in the spring.
