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). Just read a book and submit your entry to set up a target in the shooting gallery!
August 12: Tina Hilbert carves notch #6 with author Agatha Christie !
August 6: Bev Hankins carves notch #8 with author Richard & Frances Lockridge. Bev achieves a perfect 1.000 TCP (8 targets/48 shots*6), a challenging task when you are working more than one target simultaneously!
August 3: Tari Hann carves notch #3 with author Rosie A. Point !
