I keep trying to maintain a list of the series that I read but somehow I keep losing track.

I think I'm going to start a thread just to track the series, Then when I find another one, I'll have a place to check.

What about you? How do you keep track of your series reads?

Don't forget you a list of all your series under your statistics/memes.

Mines a very long list!

Basically by memory - those that are good I remember, those that are so-so I may chance upon the next instalment but I'm not that bothered. The LT series pages are very helpful!

The biggest problem for me is when I'm caught up on a series and the next installment comes out several years later!

the series page is helpful (but a bit overwhelming). mostly i just remember which ones i'm really into.

The biggest problem for me is when I'm caught up on a series and the next installment comes out several years later!

i hate that! that's the case for me with the Earth's Children series by Jean Auel.

book one: 1980
book two: 1982
book three: 1985
book four: 1990
book five: 2002
book six: 2011

i started reading the series around 1994 (i was 14... maybe a bit too young for these books). read the first four books in a matter of months and then began waiting. book five came out my sophomore year of college...

now i've just got to wait one more year to read the final book. i think i'm going to have to read the whole series over just to remember what's been happening!

I actually have started using the series page on LT. But how I have done it for years is I have gone online to the authors homepage, and printed out a list of their books (in the series) in the order the are suggested to be read in. Then i highlight the ones I have and work on getting the rest. Every two years I go back to the websites and update my lists.

I am considered a nerd in my family. I actually have a library in my house, with a check-out list. I tend to get mad when one of the books in a series goes missing and I don't know who has it. So I came up with the check-out list. Works great!

I use wikipedia to keep track. They have a pretty good database of books and are good about which order they came in. I know for the Avalon series, they not only tell you what order the books were written in but also the order chronologically.

I found this website www.fictfact.com which will track you series and where you stand even tell you about the new ones coming out. Other than the discouraging fact of knowing that I am either reading or want to start reading 166 series, it works great!
