So my thought was to have three tables -
*Table - BooksRead*
SeriesName (can allow Null because most books are not in a series)

*Table - Series*
SeriesName (not unique per row)
BookName (This + SeriesName would be unique)
Read (binary true/false auto set dependeing on if the book is in
BooksRead or not)

This just duplicates information in the BooksRead table, not a good

Not really seeing duplicated info here. I was thinking that I'd enter
most of my data in the BooksRead table - when I enter it would have a
binary "is this book in a series" - if I push yes then it would pop
up a dialog for me to enter the series info if it's not already in
the series table and possibly ask "do you want to enter all books in
this series now?" so then it would populate the series table after I
enter the single book in "BooksRead"

Yes, but what would go into the Series table? SeriesName and BookName
are already in the BooksRead table, and the read flag just indicates
that it is in the BooksRead table.

The only time there wouldn't be duplication is if you entered books into
the series table that you hadn't read yet.
