Blue - I've read the first Assassins Apprentice trilogy, The Tawny Man trilogy and on the second book of the Liveship trilogies.

I did it in the wrong order though; you should read the Liveship trilogy after Assassins apprentice trilogy to follow in the right timeline. It's not essential but I'd recommend reading in the correct order as some bits will make more sense when reading Tawny Man. I was a bit unsure of leaving Fitz when reading the Liveship set but actually they let you explore the larger world Hobb has created and the new set of Characters are very engaging.

Very good books, the chapters can be very long but I love how her stories develop and the characters are very rich. Every now and then she goes a little off track but overall well worth reading.

It doesn’t matter how you read but reading is good. I love my kindle because I have hundreds and hundreds of books. I wish I had a library but space for books in a flat is minimal!

sry Zel, i don not agree with every thing you mentioned
it is a big difference holding a real papered book in your Hands instead of an electronic device
it is much more natural and earthed from my pont of view

Except at night which is when I do most of my reading. The missus doesn’t approve of the head torch!

I have mate. I'm now on the last triology. The Liveship Traders are amazing too.
