Exciting!! I may have to change back to WoTmania in readiness for the release of A Memory of Light in January (the 8th to be precise)

But the question is, shall I read the entire series again, in preparation over the months of December? Or not bother because that would be about the fifth time I have done so?

That's my dilemma exactly!

Re-read, definitely. otherwise you will get completely lost as you'll have forgotten all the tiny little details and will notice all sorts of new things that never occurred to you before.

I would plan to re-read,but I can't see myself finishing before January! After all,I've been reading the series for what seems like my Entire Adult Life (though actually only since 1992,a mere 20 years...!)
I have listened to the audio books up to The Fires of Heaven relatively recently,so maybe I'll read on from there.
I do hope he doesn't leave too many loose ends.

When do you think I need to start my re-read?

"So angry"?

I think his run rate has been better than Robert Jordan's, and RJ didn't have the worry of people saying you didn't do it right.

RJ's last 3 books: 2000, 2003, 2005
BS's books: 2009, 2010, 2013 (and they are bigger)

Are you a fan of A Song of Ice and Fire by any chance? Neil Gaiman has something to say that I think applies in this case as well.
