Level 1: The Sampler (1 to 5 books)
Level 2: The Collector (6 to 10 books)
Level 3: The Completionist (11 to15 books)
Level 4: The Obsessive (16+ books)

Considering how far along I am at the moment I entered this challenge (April 3, 2013), it's obvious my aim will be to reach the Obsessive Level. :-)  Although  most series these days also have novellas to bait new reader while awaiting the release of the next instalment, I will only count the full length novels towards the level requirements.
