Now that I am approaching the end of A Challenge of Ice and Fire, I have been trying to decide whether or not I want to commit to doing the same thing for Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series. I began reading them when the second or third book was published, but every time a new title came out I had to start back at the beginning again and gave up after the fourth or fifth attempt. At that time I decided to wait until the final one appeared before making one last assault upon the mountain of paper that is the series.
Then, to my great delight I read a post by nrlymrtl on her blog Dab of Darkness announcing that she is co-hosting a Read Along for the series, so I now have a really great excuse to make a new attempt. The other host is Anya of On Starships and Dragonwings. Check out their blogs for more details and they both have a form for signing up if you are interested in joining us. There will be no pressure to finish the whole series or keep to the timetable, so be brave and take the plunge!
We will be reading up to the end of Chapter 7 and posting about it on December 16th, so you have a couple of weeks to decide . . .
