I have a love/hate relationship with long series. I'm wary of being disappointed one or more books into the series; but I also know that if I really like it, my reading life (and bank account!) will be absolutely consumed for the foreseeable future.
But this series kept nagging me, and now that it's all over the place again thanks to Netflix, I decided to just surrender to the urge, and ordered a box set with the first three books. I usually move easily between electronic and paper books, but this series really called for the hardbound version, so that's what I got.
And, yes, I'm loving it. I read most of the first book in one sitting, and had to make myself slow down because there are so many more... Oh well, here we go again.
