I have always been a science fiction fan, but have neglected reading the
"great" novels. So I saw a trailer for The Foundation movie based on Isaac
Asimov's book. It will be coming on Apple TV:

So I was like now's a good time to read the books. Then I find out that not
only were there the trilogy, but two prequels and two sequel books. Then I
get the audio book and the author says, wait, the I, Robot series is
connected to these books and you should read those first, ugh.

So here is the recommended order of the books:
The Complete Robot (1982)
I, Robot (1950)
Caves of Steel (1954)
The Naked Sun (1957)
The Robots of Dawn (1983)
Robots and Empire (1985)
The Currents of Space (1952)
The Stars, Like Dust (1951)
Pebble in the Sky (1950)
Prelude to Foundation (1988)
Forward the Foundation (1993)
Foundation (1951)
Foundation and Empire (1952)
Second Foundation (1953)
Foundation's Edge (1982)
Foundation and Earth (1986)

So I already have:
I, Robot
Prelude to Foundation
Foundation's Edge
Foundation and Earth

And I ordered:
The Complete Robot
Caves of Steel

I may have some others, but definitely not all of them.

I was just wondering if anyone wanted to give or sell very cheaply their
copies of their books?
