|2019 Six Shooter Mystery Reading Challenge|
- Shoot (read) six mysteries by the same target (author) during 2019. You will be able to compare your shooting progress with others in the challenge in the Shooting Gallery (below) as you go along.
- No advance signup needed.
- Shoot (read) book #1
- Submit the form. You will get a line in the Shooting Gallery upon your first shot.
- Repeat until you have read 6 books.
- Please note the Shooting Gallery does not update in real time. Your submission generates an email to me, I will fill in the data.
- You get to define what is a "mystery".
- Print books, audio books, or e-books may be used.
- Once you have completed a target, you can target the same author again for additional reads.
- You can target different authors simultaneously or consecutively.
- Young folks are especially welcome too. Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew readers are naturals!
- Pseudonyms count as the same author, for example, if you are reading Erle Stanley Gardner, you can count books by A. A. Fair.
- You do not need to write reviews, but you are welcome to. If you do, I will link to the review from the Shooting Gallery.
- Bloggers are welcome to copy the target image from the header for your blog.
- Cross-entries from other challenges are encouraged.
- Each completed line in the Shooting Gallery gives you an entry in a random drawing on Dec. 31 2019. Winners get to select a book from either my Paperback Swap Bookshelf, or the actual cardboard box on the floor of random mysteries (I'll post the list a bit later). Number of winners will depend on participation, and the number of books in the box!
