    Own all the Companions, you mean? ;)

    I'll take a Firecat...or have you not gotten to that series?

    No, own all the books. The only thing I haven't finished reading is Pathways, the newest short story collection.
    I went back and looked, it was actually 2016 that I was reading them all, started in the later half of 2015.

    Thank you both (Nymala & Roh) for giving me a place to start.

    That's kind of a magical way to read them. I got my copies of Storm Rising and Storm Warning off of this awesome fantasy/scifi book-mobile in Austin, Tx. These books just have a way of finding people <3

    I have a bunch that I don't plan on taking to NZ with me. Do you want them? The only thing I'm not really willing to part with is my original copies of the Arrows of the Queen trilogy, even though I have the trilogy on my Kindle.

    I keep meaning to read actual books, but I keep going back to Harry Potter fanfiction. Right now, it is an AU called Angry Harry and the Seven, by Sinyk. It is about 450k words.

    I will take them in a heartbeat! Just tell me how much you want for them and how to send you the money!

    I'm getting the urge to start reading again, but I have no idea where my Kindle is. :(

    You can download the Kindle app on your phone. That is what I do. It is a great way to always have a book with you.

    That does sound good for a short-term fix, but I'm not sure I'd want to spend hours on end reading on my tiny, bright-ish phone screen.

    I turn the brightness down and the kindle app lets you change the background to look like parchment so it is not as harsh. I think it also lets you turn off blue light as well.
