I am beginning to think you have a hoarding behavior... which is entirely positive of course. Happy Birthday!

It's called "collecting." :P Thank you.

Bruce | 76 comments Great haul. I would definitely recommend 'Waylander' as an early read from that list.

Isn't that book 3 in the "Legend" series? I'd think I should read Legend and The King Beyond the Gate first. Legend being in my last haul which I need to put a dent in after I finish up our Kane group read.

Bruce | 76 comments They are all stand alone tales that take place in the same 'universe', 'Waylander' takes place a hundred or so years before 'Legend' and 'The King Beyond the Gate' takes place a hundred or so years after 'Legend'.

Ohhhh, that's kinda cool. Thanks for the heads-up.
