Recently, I completed my first systematic read-through of the sequences.

What was your methodology for the read-through? How much time did it take? Was it worth the time investment?

I loaded the mobi version on to my Kindle and reading it at every spare moment. (I get a lot of reading done by taking out my Kindle at every spare moment.) I didn't have a more sophisticated "methodology" than that. A substantial percentage, maybe half of it, ended up getting read on a long weekend camping trip, when I was without other electronics to distract me. I'd estimate it took ~60 hours of actual time spent reading total, though I don't really know. And yeah I'd say it was worth it.

Just to check, do you mean the sequences, or the complete blog posts? The latter took me flipping ages to get through...

Yup, the complete blog posts.
