is targeting this author.

Welcome to the Six Shooter Mystery Reading Challenge for 2024! Your goal is simple: shoot (read) six mysteries by the same target (author). That gives you a notch on your gun, and a perfect 1.000 score; and you can call it done. But wait, there's more! 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 focus in completing your target(s). No advance signup needed. Just read the General Information page and then submit your shot to begin.
R I C O C H E T S from the S H O O T I N G   G A L L E R Y:
The Bullet-picker-upper will be out of the office from Thu June 20 through Sun June 23 and this challenge will not be updated during that period. Please continue your submissions as usual, and the challenge will be updated upon his return.
updated June 19: Bev Hankins (Indiana) carves notch #4 with author Carolyn Keene ! Her score rises above the 1.000 mark to earn the Sharpshooter Award level!
June 18: Traci L (Illinois) carves notch #3 with author Ellery Adams, and notch #4 with author Amanda Flower!

Key to symbols
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. See the chart (PDF). 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
