I have changed my name in honour of the new book, and I am 'nearly' ready to read it, just got to finish my great re-read. It takes longer now I have children!

WoTmania Tue 20-Oct-09 21:17:45

Best way to do it avendesora. I finished a month or so ago and feel like doing it again. Only 2 weeks togo now grin

I am trying to re-read, but it's taking me ages! Only just at the end of TGH - argh.

I figure that there is no hurry though, seeing as volume 2 isn't out for another year!!

WoTmania Fri 23-Oct-09 08:35:03

Are any of you going to wait for it to come out in PB? I would like to for reasons of economy but not sure sure I'll manage to hold out.

WoTmania Sun 25-Oct-09 12:34:54

I asked at waterstones today. Publication date is 27th so tuesday grin.

TrillianSlasher Sun 25-Oct-09 12:49:51

Ooh, in that case I will crack on and finish my re-read. Figured it was probably going ot take a few more years, I don't trust people to actually finish books on time.

<hint hint George R R Martin- get on with it please>

WoTmania Sun 25-Oct-09 16:14:19

it's £20 shock
and the paperback isn't out til this time next year. At least I don't get th opportunity to read when out anymore and won't be lugging a great tome around with me.

TrillianSlasher Sun 25-Oct-09 17:53:50

The first chapter is only going to be '...the wind blew, and it was not the beginning, but it was a beginning...'

No actual juicy storytelling ever goes on in the first chapter.

Of course if the wind blowing is not there I will be very disappointed, even though it's boring to read.

WoTmania Sun 25-Oct-09 18:19:32

No wind blowing would indeed be a Bad Thing

AvengingGerbil Wed 28-Oct-09 17:23:52

OK, I've read the whole thing. I am overexcited (went to bookshop first thing on Tuesday morning and pretty much ignored poor DS all day!).

Many things happen - no spoilers here, but I can't wait to discuss with readers!!!! grin

Avendesora Sun 01-Nov-09 13:00:36

My copy was £10 from Amazon, but I cant reas it yet, still re-reading

TrillianSlasher Sun 01-Nov-09 13:12:45

£10 from Amazon! Ooh, I am ordering!

Is it good Gerbil? Does it seem right?

TrillianSlasher Sun 01-Nov-09 13:15:03

OK, Amazon is now telling me £12 but that'll do.

Igglybuff Sun 01-Nov-09 13:22:20

I've found my spiritual home! I'm a massive WOT fan and joined musmnet a week ago for other reasons. Alas I've just had my DS so no idea when I'll get to read properly again <dreams of marathon reading sessions>

Sooo looking forward to this though

WoTmania Mon 02-Nov-09 10:27:53

Iggly - all those hours spent sitting feeding little NB - Read read read.
I haven't bought a copy yet as I'm reading Middle march and if I stop reading I'll take ages to get back to it.
I could buy bk12 and not read it til I finish M'march but it would sit there softly calling to me 'read me read me, no that other book. You could read it anytime. Read me'

Nassau Mon 02-Nov-09 16:48:57

Am 2/3 of the way through it. It's great. Some 'a-ha!' moments.

Can't wait until others have read it so we can have a good chat!

Igglybuff Mon 02-Nov-09 18:11:41

WoTmania I've ordered it and will be reading during feeds. The risk is I read it during naps too when I should be sleeping as well... I've re - read the series about 50 times so not going back again.

Should arrive this week. I can't wait! grin

WoTmania Tue 03-Nov-09 08:16:40

oh go on. what's a 51st time? grin
I'll probably read it (once I've finished Middlemarch) and then re-read. Again. Geek? Moi?

Igglybuff Tue 03-Nov-09 09:29:16

That's what I'll do - I can't possible have this new book out there with other people reading it but not me! shock

So will save the 51st re read for later....

Avendesora Tue 03-Nov-09 13:52:07

I am on book 10, my re-read is dragging but I am determined not to even peek!

Would one of those 'Aha' moments be about Asmodean? Is it? Is it? No, dont say!

Igglybuff Tue 03-Nov-09 14:51:02

I admire you avendesora! the Book has arrived. I've read chapter one. Burn me - there's no way I can leave it unread grin

Nassau Tue 03-Nov-09 16:50:11

Avedesora - ha ha. I think that moment is meant to be a "d'oh" moment (according to RJ anyway).

Have to say I'm liking B Sandersons work. AND so far I've only found 1 "sniff" and not "crossing arms under breasts".

I won't spoil it but a few of the theories that I had read on rasfw-rj newsfeed (when I could get it) have gone out the window. grin
