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 strategy in reaching your target(s). Read the General Information page and then submit your shot.

Do Not Rollover: If you have any partially completed targets which you do not want to pursue in 2023, send an email to your host (rickmills9@gmail.com) and let me know which ones. I will flag them with their DNR death sentence and they will not carry forward.

Key
Notch Sets of six books by one author completed
TCP Target Completion Percentage. This is similar to a baseball batting average. Ratio of notches achieved to the number of shots taken. The formula is (notches/shots)*6. Shots which complete a target will increase your TCP. Shots which do not complete a target will decrease your TCP. A perfect TCP is 1.000 or any multiple.
Shots Number of books read
Bonus Each notch (beyond the first one) directly adds a 0.100 bonus
Score TCP + bonus
