Many of the books I read are parts of a series - usually, but not always, mystery series.
I'd like to try to complete some of the series - some I have no intention of revisiting.
This blog is a way for me to keep a record of the books I've read and the ones I've yet to try.
And anyway, I've always loved making lists.

  1. Curious as to why you don't include Winona's Pony Cart, Carney's House Part yand Emily of Deep Valley?

    1. Hi, GSGreatEscaper! And welcome to my series blog. Sorry about the late reply - I don't look at this blog nearly as often as I should. And in answer to your question: I don't include those books because they're really not part of the Betsy-Tacy series. I believe they're part of Lovelace's "Deep Valley" series, and that's not one that I read. They sound intriguing, but this blog is devoted to series that I actually do read (or have read), so I haven't included any titles not in those.

      Thanks for dropping by. I'll be doing some updating in the next couple of weeks, so do check back in. And happy series reading!
