Default Feedback wanted on new Pern reading Order lists

I have been sending out reading order lists since Anne and her son Alec asked me to make them. Anne still provdes my lists from her own website aand I keep teh lists updated and am sending it out many times to fans who ask for it through my own website.

Recently I have updated the list and, more damatically, the graphic display.
The document is available as a PDF download and I am asking you to review it and check it for errors.

Click here to download Pern reading order 1.6

Tanks in advance

Re: Feedback wanted on new Pern reading Order lists

I spotted one typo on casual read-over...you have "Eight Interval" rather than "Eighth Interval".

Man, "eight" and "eighth" look like they're spelled wrong to me...like they're gibberish. Mind isn't understaning why something pronounced "ate" is starting with "eigh". I hate it when that happens. But I double-checked in Word and on m-w.com to make sure I splled them right here. I think my brain just fell over for a second.

On page 1, "Beyond Between" is not italicized, where the other short stories are.

On page 2, you have the word "story" in front of the short stories, where on the previous page you do not.

Also on page 2, sometimes the word "story" has a colon after it, and sometimes it does not.


The diagram showing all the overlapping looks good - the only thing that seems off is the fact that "The Girl Who Heard Dragons" takes up even more space than Renegades of Pern, when it is a short story that represents a very brief episode of the longer book.

D.M.D: the confusion MAY be 'cos "eight" is from Old English "ehta" pronounced (as far as I can assertain) as "ætar".
