writer... (goodreadscomwriter) | 41 comments Writer's 2020 #SeriesTF Reading

How to get points..


+1 for book completed (part of a series, even if not on my TBR)
+0.5 on manga/comics + novellas ( bind-ups get +1) +1 for starting a series
+1 for finishing a series
+1 for buddy reading

I get the points if I have finished the book +
I can get the following points even if I have not completed the book:

+1 point/every 100 pages read (per book, not total)
For graphic novels, comics + manga =
0.5 every 100 pages

Novellas/Short Stories

If an essential/main read there is no point difference between a book and a novella. However, if not  primary works, = 0.5 points for completing.
A bind-up counts as a book, so i get 1

writer... (goodreadscomwriter) | 41 comments My 2019 series recording was completely lost when the moderator removed the group from goodreads without any notice or warning. I was shocked. All my book listings gone without a chance of copying elsewhere.
So i am very glad to find your group via participating in Elyse's group where she included a link to here!
I look forward to another great year of reading series☺

Oh no, that sounds awful, I'm sorry you lost it! For a moment I thought you lost your 2019 list in this group and I was so worried.

I'm so happy you're joining us :) I've been meaning to read more of Agatha Christie but I always hesitate because I don't tend to read mysteries but maybe I should read a couple this year at least.

Good luck with all these!

Thanks Anna.. I'm so pleased you've created this group and I look forward to having a record of 2020 progress 📚!

Perhaps an audio or video watch of an Agatha Christie might inspire you to check a novel? I love the audios to get British accents. They make the stories authentic for me...


message 6: by [deleted user] (new)

I was thinking of listening to them on audio, yes, I've heard great things and I have already listened to one in the past and enjoyed it a lot :) Plus there are also some great adaptations.
Speaking of, will you be reading Death on the Nile to prepare for its upcoming adaptation or is it a coincidence?


message 7: by writer... (new)

writer... (goodreadscomwriter) | 41 comments That sounds a great beginning already Anna !

I did read Death on the Nile in prep for the 2020 release.. I'm doing the #Book2MovieRC so Im reading as many books related to that challenge as I find interesting 😊

Ive just discovered your point system for motivation.. yay! Is it ok to post the points here for a reminder ?
Thanks for the creativity...
