    I can appreciate that. I was the same way for many years until I was given a Kindle as a Christmas present. It is in fact just as easy to read on Kindle than it is a real book and you don't have the storage and dust issues involved with real books. The only books I insist on getting in actual paper form are historical texts with photographs because the Kindle simply can't hold a candle to the actual book.

    But for all other books? Yes, I will get the Kindle or ebook version. If you can't find the Witcher books in any other format I suggest you might want to at least try reading it on ebook format. I don't want to discourage you from your stance on that hill but needs must as goblins say.

    I only read ebook version if there is no physical book copy available to me.

    I'm currently reading The Belgariad, Volume 1. First time ever reading Eddings.

    It has been many years since I read that series but I remember it being a solid fantasy series.

    I've recently begun reading (listening to audiobooks) the Witcher series, though I did start with the Blood of Elves which turned out to be the second book

    I’m on a re-read of Sandman by Neil Gaiman. Love that story and it’s another series being made into a TV show that I am excited to see.

    Currently finishing Mountains Beyond Mountains - it's about Paul Farmer and the Partners in Health Program. Incredibly inspiring

    I'm reading A Blight of Blackwings by Kevin Hearne.
    It's a cool fantasy series with an interesting way of telling a story from multiple PoVs!

    I finished reading The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and now I'm on Afterlife with Archie, both series by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. I'm on a comics kick! I'm going to start Eye of the World again here soon, but got drawn in :look by the comics. :lol

    Is this a follow-up to "A History of the World in 6 Glasses?" That had a similar premise, but starting in prehistory. It was really good!

    It's a completely different author, so I don't think so. "And a Bottle of Rum" is specifically the history of rum

    A super steamy romance called Rafe: A Buff Male Nanny. It sounds like a parody but is actually really good.

    Rereading Liveship Traders by Robin Hobb. I was going to just reread the first book to pace myself with a friend that's rereading. Buuuut I started and now I only have like 40 pages left of the third.

    I just finished this morning Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson's "Letters from an Astrophysicist" . Now I am reading Carl Sagan's "Billions and Billions" which should be finished tomorrow. Then I will get back to finishing book 3 of The Licanius Trilogy by Brent Weeks.

    I am having a lot of fun reading! :)

    I love Robin Hobb but the Liveship Books are not my favorite. Assassins Apprentice is one of the best. The Farseer Books are my favorites. I see so many similarities between Sanderson's Wit and Hobb's Fool.
