message 1: by Dana (new)

Dana (erato) This challenge will be an ongoing monthly mini-challenge to keep us all motivated to start, (and then continue), some of the many series in our TBR.


Rules:

1) You must read one of each; a 1st, 2nd, and a 3rd book in a series.

2) Any genre of series is acceptable.

3) 'Half-step' short-stories (i.e., shorts in anthologies), do not count.
*For uniformity, the numbering on GR will be the judge of this.*

4) Rereads do count.

5) No more than 2 of the 3 books each month can be from the same series.

That's okay. I just don't want to be in SO MANY challenges at the same time because it could get overwhelming for me.

I don't think I will be able to finish this one this month. I'm working on book 2 right now, but I don't think I will be able to get to book 3 this month. I've kinda slacked off a little this month which is so unheard of me!
