Yep, I have so many favorite moments across all the books. I started with ebooks with the Witcher and I really like it because I can highlight, bookmark, word look up and everything it’s so nice. I have all my favorite moments and quotes bookmarked or highlighted.


TheMenaceX

That is a good idea lol


MichaelMoretti92

I feel you. Did a similar thing a month back. Couldn't keep the books down. Finished all eight in 14-15 days. Was cursing the human need for sleep as I wanted to just keep reading day and night.


TheMenaceX

Yeah haha I genuinely just don’t want to sleep anymore


chaitanyathengdi

No kidding - I was sometimes reading in excess of 10 hours a day. Even on workdays!


sshantona

I just started reading The Last Wish. Super excited to finish this and start the next one!


TheMenaceX

Nice!


Natybunny

The books are amazing


TheMenaceX

They really are

It feels so good to be a Poleman now.

Yeah I only read the books after playing the witcher 3 and loved them so much. Definitely one of my favourite fantasy series.

They are incredibly engrossing. Bought all 8 in a set. Read all 8 in like 3 weeks. I feel you.


TheMenaceX

Dang yeah


chaitanyathengdi

All the books are 3000 pages. You read a thousand pages a week?!


Robowarrior

They are not 3000 pages. I just pulled the last one off the shelf, it’s 529

Robowarrior

Yeah because that’s on a kindle fam. There are way less words per page. I read paperbacks


chaitanyathengdi

The last book (Season of Storms) is 529 pages, right? On the Kindle, it's 344 pages.


Robowarrior

Oh you’re talking altogether? Yeah I read a thousand pages a week


Mr_CallMeFree

When I first got into The Witcher games I wanted to get the books. Lo and behold, I found some crazy man on eBay selling the entire collection for only $24! To this day it is the greatest steal I've ever had. All the books are in ok condition. My plan in the future is -when I'm done with them completely- to donate them to my local library.


chaitanyathengdi

It really bugged me how they just up and ended Baptism of Fire without much mention of Ciri. Same for you? There's a reason for that though, as you'll find out in Tower of the Swallow.


TheMenaceX

Oh my god no joke, I was just there like yeah what’s happening next whats Ciri doing? What’s yen doing since she managed to escape the meeting? Does she meet Ciri? and then I flipped the page and the book ended and I was just like what the fuck. How u gonna end like that bro


chaitanyathengdi

They had to end the book with the stupid Geralt of Rivia thing. I was SO disappointed.


TheMenaceX

Ah well, I'm sure Tower of Swallows will make up for it lol

There are also audiobooks with actors and FX sounds which are amazing! [YouTube teaser](https://youtu.be/pVSNW6JhFPY) Unfortunately only in Polish

Just to encourage you to learn Polish: the translations are actually awful, especially the short stories - like terrible to the point you wonder how on Earth Witcher got popular in the US.

Teaching crap swear words using an unfunny boomer joke. Nice.
