Nikki ~ The Nocturnal Bookworm (nyxreadsstuff) | 9 comments So I’ve been asking this various places and figured since everyone else seems as torn as I am about it this group would be another good place to ask. I’m planning on reading about 188 of the novels set in the Forgotten Realms as a personal challenge and I can’t decide if I should do chronological order or publication order. I made a chronological order list in case I decide to do that but I keep going back and forth.

This would be the chronological order if that's what I go with:

That's a vast undertaking...good luck, personally I'd go with publication order since I consider that the way they were intended to be read but it would be interesting to read in chronological order to see how events in one book coincide with books in another.

As I write this I'm becoming more and more intrigued about reading them the way you are planning, to be honest. That's a really tough call.

This sounds like a really cool challenge for yourself though and I may consider giving it a go myself.

I guess either would work. I would always read the dark elf trilogy before the Icewind dale trilogy first.

Sandy | 1665 comments so the question is where do you find these books? I really enjoyed the forgotten realms that I read and would love to find them all.

I’ve bought a lot of them at used book stores. There are two in my town that I check. For the ones on the list I don’t have yet that will be my first place to check. Next I would check places like amazon, book depository, half price books website, and thrift books. I will often check them all when looking for something to find the best deal. As well don’t forget about your local library if you don’t necessarily want to buy them all!
