And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Whoops

I finally decided to read me some Robin Hobb. Well, I wasn't sure what books belonged to one series, but I saw that my library had three books with "fool" in the title, so I might as well start there, right?

 

Nope. Turns out the Tawny Man series is the sequel to the Farseer trilogy. I feel like I'm missing a lot from the story, but I can't go back and read the Farseer because the Tawny Man contains major spoilers. 

 

Whoops.

Raven,

 

I think that you could go back and read the Farseer trilogy and still enjoy it .  I know that the Tawny Man trilogy has spoilers but you would still find out a lot of new stuff and fill in the story with the Farseer trilogy.
