Sorry LT, I worded poorly - I didn't think you were looking for lack of knowledge on my part.
As I'm still trying to get through most of the EU (I was a late bloomer and then I had a long period between reads due to difficulties accessing novels - which I'm hoping is now fixed due to digital avenues) I am really hoping they don't ruin it or just cast it aside. I certainly don't want them to become invalid before I have even finished reading them . But if they could somehow link them together, in a satisfying way, then I would be extremely excited. Could be the best of both worlds.
