What: 1st in Series Challenge
When: 1 January – 31 December 2009
Who: J. Kaye (J. Kaye’s Book Blog)
Rules: Goal is to read at least 12 books that are the first book in a series. List can be made at anytime.
The 2008 challenge is a bust for me. I tried to stick to the list, or alternate list, as much possible — and it didn’t work out. During the year, I went on a splurge — several book buying splurges, actually — and bought the 1st book in many series.
I’m not going to make a list this year. I have more than twelve series — some are trilogies, some are new as of 2008. But I do have a few goals, regarding the challenge:
- If the series started in 2008 — definitely read in 2009, to determine if it’s one I want to follow and keep an eye out for the next book.
- If the series is a trilogy — read all three, if possible (obviously, only the first book counts in the challenge)
- New in 2009 — start a few new ones, for the same reason as first point.
I will track my progress here.
