The Great Book of Amber and Survival looks interesting too. I just read about the Amber books, but I hadn't heard about Julie E. Czerneda before. More books to add to my maybe-to-read list... Thanks
You are most welcome! Always happy to pass on good recommendations!

Yeah. I plan to do something like that, except I'll probably take a break every few books (maybe three or four) instead of every book.

I tend to get tunnel vision with series (reading one right after the other) and I find that I lose steam around book 8 or 9, so breaking it into smaller chunks should help greatly. Plus, as I mentioned earlier, this will be my "At home only book", so reading something else when I'm out should help as well.
