I have had this book on my shelf "want to read" for awhile now. I am wondering what is the best way to tackle this book. Do I take it a page at a time? or do I read a chapter then go back and read all the footnotes or do I read the main book then go back and read the rest?
Has anybody read this and of so what was your strategy? Is it worth the time?
I bought this book a while ago, and had a pretty easy time getting through it just page by page. Within the first two chapters you figure out how the color combinations of the notes relate to each other, and it gets pretty easy to figure when events between the main characters happen. My friends and people in the S forums (they exist) have tackled it different ways. By the second or third chapter, you should be able to figure out what reading pattern works for you.
Read each chapter of the main text of SoT, ignoring all of Jen & Eric's notes. Upon finishing each chapter, you're going to want to go back and read only the blue/black notes and any referenced inserts. Then, move on to the next chapter. After you finish the whole book, go back and read only the orange/green notes and referenced inserts. Then purple/red, then black/black.
