Welcome to the 2022 Six Shooter Challenge! Your goal is to shoot (read) six mysteries by the same target (author). You get one notch on your gun for each target completed. After your first target completion, you get bonus points for each additional notch. Unlike many reading challenges, reading more books may not necessarily help your score. Scores are not based upon quantity, but rather efficient shooting in reaching your target(s). Just read a book and submit your entry to set up a target!

  4. Each completed target earns you a notch on your gun.
  5. Once you have completed a target, you can target the same author again for additional notches.
  6. You can target different authors simultaneously or consecutively.
  7. Pseudonyms count as the same author, for example, if your target is Erle Stanley Gardner, you can count books by A. A. Fair.
