AMoL - How fast are you going to read it?


Recommended Posts

I want to say that I'm going to savor it, but to be honest first time I'll read it - possibly non-stop (done it before), then will reread straight away more slowly.

I always have lofty intentions when I get my hands on any new book I've been waiting for. But, inevitably I end up blowing through it in 2 days or less (depending on length). Then I give it a few days and reread it slower and more in depth.

Depends a bit on work, but the last few have all been under 24 hours. Then I generally spend a day or so going wtf on the forums before settling in for  second read (even that tends to be done in a few days) so generally I'll have read it twice within a week.

This is what I'm going to do.

Yep, already put in the time off request for 8th and 9th.  I tend to go through awesome moments way too fast and end up re-reading the same chapter right away a bit slower and kinda skim over boring things needing a re-read later.  Debating if I want to look at the list of chapter names first though.

If I could afford the time off I would read straight through. I suspect, despite my best intentions, that I will stay up far, far longer than I should reading it. As much as I love all y'all, I will forego forums in favor of finishing the book that much sooner. My enthusiasm doesn't really affect how fast I read, so it will still take me a few days.

I also have requested the 8th and 9th off of work.

 

I plan to read it straight through with as few breaks as possible. I'll probably reread awesome bits as I go, then do a full reread after I finish it once through. Forums and reading spoiler reviews/comments will fill in whatever time I have leftover. =D

I will be sitting down with my new dragon pipe and a good ole bag of Two Rivers Long Leaf and ill be telling the kids and the wife to leave me along for at least 6 hours.(the time it usually takes for me to read a 1000 page book lol ) , and then ill go through it much more slowly. But if it is anything like the last 2 books ill have it read at least 3 times in under a week i bet. One perk of being a stay at home dad.

I took the whole week off.

I'll be sitting in my super recliner chair in front of my fireplace. I'll do a speed read first, then do it again more methodically.

This.

 

Taking vacation that week.  Plan to read it twice and attend a signing.

I plan on reading it during every free moment I have. I had preordered it on Amazon, for same day delivery -- but I'm so excited/impatient, that I may cancel the pre-order and walk up to the Barnes and Noble near my office as soon as it opens and get it - so that I can start reading on the walk back to the office! :-)

 

I've been reading this series for 15 years.... some of you I'm sure it's been longer. I just *can't* believe it's going to be over..... I'm eternally grateful to RJ and Harriet for allowing the story to be completed. I suspect, however, that once the need to know "how it ends" has gone... I'll be sitting and wondering, "how different would it have been if RJ had been around?" ((NOTE -- this is not an invitation to bash Brandon, just musing on what "filler" would have been different.)) Guess we'll never know... But DAMN these next few weeks (since I finished my re-read last week) are going to be UNBEARABLE! These forums are satisfying my need for a WOT fix.... but only barely!

 

Can't want to see what you all think of it, once the story has been told.

Slow build. As with many things in life it's hard to go wrong with that approach.

 

I certainly will be more than taking my time with RJ's ending.
