Contest using series starters.

First In A Series 

How ludicrous it must seem to commit in December when most contests end.  It’s easy to just begin, quite a while before declaring it.  With a telephone modem, there’s no whipping anything up.  I *can* start Christmas baking while pages load!  To avoid frequent notifications for my subscribers, I generally stick to one post per day.  Then too, visibilit of each isn’t missed by newer, hasty succession.

{To wonderful subscribers who aren’t book worms, be assured I discuss other things as well.  This is my blog for great topics even if reading sometimes lands at the forefront.  I have a hilarious 80s portrait activity in mind, for instance and this is the first I’ve uttered about it.  Stay tuned if you’re keen}! 

This “First In A Series” reading circle is a really fun idea.  If you’re like me, you take advantage of sales without completing series you already have.  Finding the mates to acquisitions can be a quest later.  Had I heard of these contests January 1 when they started, I’d easily hit the top but happily reach level III‘series expert’.  Let’s see what I manage before the month is through.

¦ Series Novice:  3 books that are the first in any series.
¦ Series Lover:  6 books that are the first in any series.
¦ Series Expert:  12 books that are the first in a series.  —>  I am here!
¦ Series Fanatic:  20 books that are the first in a series.
