I'm thinking about playing through the first and second game again so I have a save ready for the Witcher 3. I haven't read the books yet, and I'm wondering if I'll get more out of the games if I read the books first.

As far as I know, they're not all translated yet.

Only two novels and one collection are translating according to this. I read the last wish, but it wasn't memorable enough apparently.

They've all been translated into about a dozen languages

I am reading Time of Contempt right now. The Blood of Elves was okay, but I liked The Last Wish.

The games are deliberately separate from the books and the tv series. That's what the whole amnesia thing is about.
If they asked how I died tell them: Still angry.

I've read "The Witcher" short story that comes with the gog version. It was decent enough for me to warrant an $8 purchase of "The Last Wish," but I haven't started that yet.

Yeah they're good books

I own copies of '

The last wish
Blood of Elves

Looking forward to Times of Contempt when it comes out.

My friend owns all the Polish novels; but he reads/speaks Polish so it's a chore for me trying to figure out what's going on in those.
