Today, even contemplating rereading those massive books gives me the willies. I mean, I have a ton of books sitting on my night stand waiting to be read for the first time, so committing the time to reread stuff to prep for the new book coming out? Isn’t that what WikiPedia is for now?
Oh I know this feeling. Series books tend to devolve into that — re-reading all the books before the new one arrives. It becomes work!
