A Reader's annoyment >:(

Everyone knows that I bought most of the Falcon series in a used bookstore, and have since been trying to find earlier novels. (Well, my ego would like to think everyone knows, so...) After reading the first book, not being impressed, but a finisher of stories at heart, I finally succumbed to temptation and dived into another last night. I cursed myself for not having book 2, or 3, or 4, and having to start at 5. I even browsed paperback swap again for book 2 - but nope. I finished reading the fifth book today, ever present of missing background.

Today on my desk, I find book 4.

Grrr. It's even more annoying now to have to read 4 after 5, when I didn't even know I had 4 in the first place.
