I want to repeat this N times, so at any N I can find the total, so I suppose:

$\displaystyle

\sum_{n=1}^{N}\frac{1}{n}+\sum_{n=1}^{N-1}\frac{1}{n}+....+\sum_{n=1}^{2}\frac{1}{n}+\sum_ {n=1}^{1}\frac{1}{n}+N

$

I want to write this in a single condensed sum (well N could be added on the end) or something that is at least simple, could someone help me? thanks
