Stacy (stacybinnj) | 55 comments This challenge is for those of you who have read a mid-series book and want to go back and plug up the holes.

For this challenge you must read a minimum of 6 books. This is a 6 month challenge starting from the time of sign-up.

Plugging the holes should result in a sequential list of at least 6 read books and preferably plug the holes at the beginning of the series first. Meaning... If you have read Book 4 and Book 9, you should consider reading Books 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7.

Clear as mud?

Re-reads don't count unless you have TOTALLY forgotten the storyline.

Do NOT have to be from the same series.

Please edit your original post in order to track your progress.

This is my first time authoring a challenge so I hope I'm not the only one doing it!

Stacy (stacybinnj) | 55 comments So here's my challenge....

I'm going to Plug the Holes with Kim Harrison's Hollows Series.

1. Hollows #1: Dead Witch Walking
2. Hollows #2: The Good, the Bad, and the Undead
3. Hollows #3: Every Which Way But Dead
4. Hollows #4: A Fistful of Charms
5. Hollows #5: For a Few Demons More
6. Hollows #7: White Witch, Black Curse

I've already read #6 and #8 so this will get me prepped for Pale Demon coming out in 2011!

Steph (angel4492) | 29297 comments Fantastic idea, Stacy! Well done! I just wish I could join ya. I haven't read any series books out of order. But, if I do, I'll hop in down the road.

Good luck! I'm sure some other members will be joining you.

Steph (angel4492) | 29297 comments Actually since I've been chatting about Nalini Singh's Psy series this morning, I noticed I have missed out on the shorts within anthologies. Would that count for this challenge?

Why not? It still plugs the holes right?


message 6: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29297 comments Yay! I think so. Thanks.

I have several series that I've skipped or missed anthology stories or shorts from the author's site. I'll post my reading list soon.


message 7: by Josie (new)

Josie | 1967 comments Ha, I could never read a series out of order so unfortunately I can't join in this challenge. I'm a little OCD about skipping books lol!


message 8: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29297 comments You said it, Sista! My OCDitis doesn't seem to have any issues missing out on the short stories (probably b/c there's only a couple of authors who's shorts I ever really like), but it most certainly would never stay quiet long enough for me to jump around.


message 9: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23919 comments Good challenge idea Stacy. I'm sure I've got some, I'll have a look and come back and post.

message 13: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23919 comments Stacy, I've got a couple of books to plug holes but nothing like 6 books all in one series. Is it alright if I use books from different series? If not don't worry.

message 29: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29297 comments I keep forgetting about this one. Probably b/c mine's full of anthologies. LOL! Well, at least I have an excuse to read just the one story in those anthologies for now, that's a +. :)

But this was a very good idea Stacy!
