For each of the number, from 1 to 20, you will have to read book/s that is part of a series* and use the serial number to make up the sum of the number.

ONLY series books are allowed in this challenge BUT there are no page limitations so feel free to read any of the .5 books/stories to make up your sum ;)

*series name are usually in grey font next to the title and will have a number denoting its place in the series

WARNING: you will need some arithmetic skill for this challenge though you will only need to be able to add up to 20.

EXAMPLE

For the number 1 (ONE), I can read:

The Girl from Everywhere (The Girl from Everywhere #1) -being first book in the series

OR

The Magician's Apprentice (The Black Magician Trilogy 0.5)
A Dark Grave (The Elysium Chronicles 0.5)
Where 0.5 + 0.5 = 1

The Girl from Everywhere (The Girl from Everywhere #1)
The Diviners (The Diviners #1)

LOL! I am finding that my plan has to be reworked due to the fact that some of my books are in my hands right now and needing to be read for current or past games AND are from the library and cannot be held for another month. That is what I get for planning too far ahead.

Tien, I just noticed something I don't think I considered at all last year. It has to do with this statement:

"For series books that is greater than 18, you can use the sum of the series number."

This year, I assumed that using the sum would also apply to smaller two-digit numbers in the case of a duplicate series position. For example, I read The Heretic's Apprentice (Chronicles of Brother Cadfael #16). If I later read another #16, I would score it as 1+6=7.

Is that a correct interpretation? I know it won't come up often, but it might.

I should know better than to even try this - most of the series books on my list are the first or second in the series, not nice big numbers that would add up fast. And I came nowhere near finishing in 2019. But the organizing and planning is so much fun!

I know I'm probably just totally missing it, but what is the significance of 18? Why greater than 18 and not just any double digit series number?

Ah, we started Seriously Serial in 2018 so it was to note if book series if greater than 18, then you can still use it by using the sum of the double digit...

You're right though I should amend the instructions to follow the time :) Thanks!

What? Help--that will make it harder and harder to find those big ones to add up! Also, what about the ones with decimals that we were able to add?

For series books that with double digits, you can use the sum of the series number. See below example;

I thought it was any double digits that we could add.

I may be confused with yet another migraine, but it came from Ah, we started Seriously Serial in 2018 so it was to note if book series if greater than 18, then you can still use it by using the sum of the double digit...

So I realize now that I misread it!
