Yesterday was a milestone of sorts for The Dresden Files thread! As you may already know The Dresden Files thread is a sub-thread in the Mobileread Forum, Reading Recommendations.

Nyssa created The Dresden Files thread on 09-16-2011 and yesterday The Dresden Files thread passed all the other non-sticky sub-threads in the Reading Recommendations Forum. The Dresden Files thread has now had 172,481 views and 2,624 posts (they're called replies by Mobileread) since it was started.

The Dresden Files thread numbers exceed all of the Sub-Forum, Book Clubs' many Sub-Forums (350+).

Of the five sticky sub-threads in the Reading Recommendations Forum only one exceeds The Dresden Files numbers and it is four and one half years older than The Dresden Files.

Nyssa originally asked that this thread be afforded Book Club status or become a sticky. Neither status was afforded it.

Congratulations, Nyssa!

As Leanansidhe has stated, Alan is the one who keeps this place active. He has been the backbone of this thread and I am very thankful to him for it!

Thank you Alan!

I'd also like to thank my fellow Dresden Files fans for making this thread a fun place to be.

Cool Fool Moon

Quote:

Harry Dresden
by thegryph
Fan Art / Digital Art / Painting & Airbrushing / Books & Novels
©2008-2013 thegryph

"The world is getting weirder. Darker every single day. Things are spinning around faster and faster, and threatening to go completely awry. Falcons and falconers. The center cannot hold.

But in my corner of the country, I'm trying to nail things down. ... I don't want to live in a world where the strong rule and the weak cower. I'd rather make a place where things are a little quieter. Where trolls stay the hell under their bridges, and where elves don't come swooping out to snatch children from their cradles. Where vampires respect the limits, and where the faeries mind their p's and q's.

My name is Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden. Conjure by it at your own risk. When things get strange, when what goes bump in the night flicks on the lights, when no one else can help you, give me a call. I'm in the book."

- Jim Butcher

Edit: To answer the two most common questions I get about this - the dog was intended to be one of the hexenwulfen from Fool Moon, though if it makes you happy to make it Mouse in your heads, I'm cool with that. For all the endless commentary on his hat... seriously, guys, this piece is probably four years old at this point. Please take it as read that I have been reminded by many, many people that he doesn't wear one in canon, but I'm unlikely to change it this far down the road.

Very interesting! It doesn't fit into the previous theme, does it?

I've re-downloaded, for the cover only since I'm partway through maybe someday finishing editing it.

Can't help but wonder how you find this stuff out.

Question for the other Hollows readers: I'm about to start #5 and I'm wondering...

Spoiler:
Is Brett going to make an appearance here or in the future?


Just a yes, yes but not in #5, or no will suffice. Thanks!

Cool my annual re-read

I'm now going back to my annual re-read (I paused this re-read a while back so it would end a little closer to the Publication date of Skin Game) of The Dresden Files, with Changes!

From where? This isn't the one in the official ePub. Although I wish it was, it's much smaller AND nicer! NVM, though, that's easily fixed. Thanks!

Do you have any idea whether this means the covers of the older books are getting a facelift?
