re: reading order

it seems to me that almost everyone read them out of order. Robin said it was done that way because you're supposed to think of Aerin as the perfect hero in _Sword_, but then when you read _Hero_ you find that it wasn't any easier for her. this obviously makes sense; i've always wanted to experiment on someone and make them read the books in the right order. i actually had the chance when i convinced my best friend to read them, but i unthinkingly gave her _Hero_ first because it's my favorite. i'll have to find someone else to experiment on; it takes some convincing, as most people dismiss them as childrens' books. so, perhaps the question should be: has anyone read them in the *right* order?
