Welcome to the 2023 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 completing your first target, 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). There is no advance signup for this challenge, just read the General Information page and then submit your shot to begin.

You can visit the 2022 Six Shooter Mystery Reading Challenge to see how it wrapped up!

Jan 25: Anne A. carves notch #1 with author C J Box!
Jan 25: Tina Hilbert carves notch #2 with author Heather Blake! Getting a second notch invokes the bonus point rule! Now she is only 0.043 away from the Sharpshooter Award already!

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
