2016: the #YearofDune

My son recently introduced me to The Dune Saga Podcast which is a podcast ran by Scott Herzog, David Moulton, and Jim Arrowood and is a venue where they wonderfully explore the Dune saga through its controversial chronological order.

This podcast began earlier this year and I unfortunately discovered it too late because they have just completed the reading of the final book in the saga.

Intrigued by the concept, I am dubbing 2016 as the #YearofDune and I will be personally reading (mostly re-reading) the entire saga myself, in its chronological order, and making comments on each of the books and short stories.  If you would like to join me in this endeavor, I plan to use the Twitter hashtag #YearofDune and the following reading schedule:
