Thanks, Heather!

I'll be reading Fool's Errand in February. Can't wait!

Thanks Heather! I have Fool's Errand and will start very shortly!

So, I started reading Fool's Errand and there were mentions again of the Piebald Prince, so I took a detour today and read The Willful Princess and the Piebald Prince finally! The story wasn't actually what I had expected, but it was good, and filled in a little background on the Wit. If you haven't read it, this might be a good place?

I hope we're continuing this in 2020. I plan to finish up the series. I read Dragon Keeper last, so I only have 6 more books to go. I haven't been very faithful about posting, but I've done a great job of reading! LOL! Hopefully, I'll do better in 2020.

>8 rretzler: I'm not going to start any threads in the 2020 group but happy for someone else to if they would find them helpful. I'm planning to read The Tawny Man trilogy next year and maybe squeeze in the Rain Wild books too.
