I can't really remember how this started, but Katharine from ventureadlaxre and I were talking one day and I believe I mentioned that I had never read a Robin Hobb book. She, being a fan and understandably horrified at this fact, suggested we do a challenge where we read every book and piece of short fiction that ties into the Realm of the Elderlings books. That's something like five series of novels. And I, though nervous, said 'okay?'.
This will be an almost full re-read for Katharine (she hasn't quite brought herself to read the final book yet), and completely new for me. We will be doing discussion posts whenever we read something, and you're welcome to read along with us or whatever you'd like :) Below is our reading order, shamelessly stolen from Katharine's blog.
