Personal

For Christmas somewhere around 1990, my mother bought my brother and step-brother books 1 and 2 of the Lone Wolf series. My step-brother lived in a different state, so I wasn't able to read the first book, but, I did get to watch my brother flip through the second book, Fire On the Water. I looked through the pictures and heard him describe the story, and thought it was great. Once he was bored of it, I read through it many times. A friend of mine in middle school had several of the books as well, and I enjoyed looking at the pictures in his books, but never had a chance to read any of them. In the early 2000s, I was at a used book shop and found several of the books for sale, including the first book that I had missed out on. I bought every one they had and finally got to read what was only hinted to from the second book. Later, I found out the titles were online, and skimmed through them, but didn't have the desire to read them in a browser. When the Android app was made, I read through and completed books 1-4, but, not finding the fourth book all that interesting, didn't go any further.
