Niki’s Incomplete Series Tracker

 

I started compiling titles for this list and quickly became overwhelmed at my number of unfinished series. I knew I had reading ADD, but I didn’t realize my issues were so extensive. I now have a new focus for 2017… [July 2017 – I’ve restructured, moving a bunch to DNF and created a new category of series I’d have to restart, bringing my outstanding total from 129 to 75].

Unfinished Series: 75
Unfinished Series Not UTD: 48
Unfinished Series I’d have to restart: 37 (not counted towards total)
