2024 Six Shooter Mystery Reading Challenge


I'm heading out to the shooting range again with Rick and his Six Shooter Mystery Reading Challenge in 2024. The goal is pretty straight-forward--read six books on the same target (by the same author) to complete your round. Any targets started in 2023 but not yet complete will carry over to the new year, so Rick's page won't be fully updated for a while. Once it's updated, you can check out the full details at the link above.

As with his other challenges, Rick doesn't ask for a commitment. But I will set a personal goal in order to claim the challenge complete for 2024. I've been setting it at four targets--and I will be aiming for the same in the new year.  Most likely targets will include Agatha Christie, the Lockridges, and Carolyn Keene. Other authors TBD.
