Dewey's Read-a-Thon and Honor Harrington

'Tis that time of year again. Seems like the only times I update this blog lately are to chart my progress through the semi-annual Read-a-thon. And it's coming up again—starting at 7am (Texas time) on 22 October. I'm clearing my calendar and lining up the books that I want to read.

Speaking of the books that I want to read, most of August and September I was reading through the books in David Weber's Honor Harrington series rather than reading books that I had promised to send to my BookObsessed friends. I practically sailed through 5 novels—and then started in on the various short stories which fill in the gaps in the story line. (Wish I had started reading the short stories a long time ago and had kept up with the chronology.)

So, during August, I read four of the Honor Harrington novels: In Enemy Hands, Echoes of Honor, Ashes of Victory, and War of Honor. During the first weeks of September, I then read At All Costs. That's when I turned from the novels to the short stories and novellas to fill in the gaps. Those stories were published in five different collections and I decided to read them in order that they occurred in the story line rather than in the order they were written or published. Accordingly, due to the way that I keep my statistics, I don't get to count the pages until I finish the last story in a given book. And, fortunately, I finished reading Worlds of Honor in mid-September. I'm still reading the Honor Harrington short stories, so I completed Changer of Worlds this week and I'm well on my way to finishing The Service of the Sword.
