  1. Bleak and worrisome? I read it more as proud and triumphant. I read it more in the way of 'we are out numbered and/or getting defeated, but...' You know, sorta like William Wallace's battlefield speech. Perhaps they will win the battle, but it is VERY uncertain. So I am going to think it is one of the 4 great captains or Lan or Tam.
  2. Today's memory is - "We'll remember those who fell, and we'll tell our children how we stood when the clouds turned black and the world started to die. We'll tell them we stood shoulder to shoulder, and there was just no space for the Shadow to squeeze through." Man very bleak and worrisome.

  7. 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.
  8. Number 17 is - "It is one of the three things which I will require of you.Your payment, to me,in exchange for my life." Seems Rand has three requirements. The peace is one I'm sure. No ideas on 2 or 3. Thoughts?
  9. Didn't think of that either. It's certainly less likely. I don't think it's traveling though. Hmmm... Maybe BBM is onto something.
  10. Memory 13 - "We must spread the word to all of our allies," Amys said. "We must not use this weave." Pretty confident she's speaking about BF. But, I could be wrong.
  11. @herid That's a good point! But, if it were an AS with little to no healing ability it could be plausible. Meh... Not stuck on the idea, but it was my first thought.
  12. My first thought was Alanna to someone. Perhaps she's dying, and they want to prevent Rand from taking a non-stop trip back to crazy town. That or Cyndane forcing Alanna to give it up to her. Ugh to that.
  13. I liked the SM Stirling Emberverse series for the most part. First book is 'Dies the Fire', It's 6-8 books or more now.
  14. Just listened to it. Very well done! I like the haunting undertones and the way the guitar and strings fit together. It actually gave me chills. I love it!
  15. I started my re-read in *thinks* mid-August. I finished completely by end of September/beginning of October. No skimming or skipping. Granted, I read a normal size novel every day or two, but I really am anxious to get my hand on AMoL. It had been a while since my last full re-read of the entire epic, so I was pretty captivated by the ones I'd rarely or never read a second time. Now I am more than ready for the final chapters.
  16. Today is election day. Let's perform our most essential civic duty. Politics can sometimes be off putting but apathy is the great tool of the extreme minority. So let's get out there and VOTE! Our voices must be heard!!

  17. I originally read this series for the first time when I was 13. (1992) If I remember it correctly, I identified with Egwene and, to a certain extent, Mat more as a teen. The feeling of impending adventure, casting off of their hum-drum lives was appealing. Finding out about having 'magic' and becoming 'someone special' totally grabbed this girl. I completely disliked Nyn and Moir, and honestly didn't comprehend as much of the subtleties of the story. Now as an adult, when I read the series, I am drawn more to Nyn, and Moir. Their more subtle characteristics are apparent to me in a way they never were when I was a teen. I have found I grasp more of the story, I think, with life experience under my belt. The darkness in the tale is more apparent, and I find that I am less tolerant of any character's childish behavior. That said, I get so much more pleasure reading it now, than I did as a child. Edit for spelling
  18. Watching "Next Iron Chef." Yes. Yes, I am that dorky. :)

    Trailridge Road is the highest continuous paved road in N. America. It peaks at over 12,000 feet, and is some of the only access to alpine tundra in the world. In this photo, you can clearly see the bottom of the road in the lower right corner. This shot was taken at over 2 miles above sea level.

    Idaho Springs Falls

    From the album: 2010-2012 photos

    These falls are visible from right off interstate 70 in Idaho Springs. My son refers to them as the pizza waterfall, due to it being right across from Beau Jo's pizza. (Now I want Beau Jo's)

  23. For me, it was like the third or fourth Terry Goodkind book. I tried to get into them, because of a friend's recommendation. I just couldn't. It was terrible. The Fall of Hyperion by Dan Simmons. Loved the first one, but couldn't get into the second. It took me months to get halfway through the Dragonbone Chair. But after that, I flew through the series. I finally gave up on S.M. Stirling's Emberverse at "The Scourge of God." And Finally I couldn't finish Dance with Dragons. *shurgs* I'll try again on that one, at a later date.
  24. I just finished my WOT re-read. Now, I am re-reading two at the moment. I am reading the Magic series by Ilona Andrews. A fun, new and interesting urban fantasy series written by a husband and wife team. And I am re-reading my Eddings. Just some light reading after the WOT! I am in desperate need of new reading material. *begs* Any good recommendations? Doesn't have to be fantasy. I'll read most anything. (Well, almost. I felt my brain die a little when I read Twilight because all my sisters told me to.) Thanks all!
  25. I first read the Belgariad when I was about 10. It was not only my first fantasy, but were the books that made me WANT to read. They opened a whole new world for a young girl. They led me to Ray Fiest and from there to RJ and beyond. (It did help that I spoke to David on the phone when I was like 13 because my dad was an editor for some fantasy mag. He was insanely nice to a bubbly over excited teen.) I still have all the original (british editions too, if you can believe it) books, one David even sent to that over excited teen, signed and dated. I think it is 'The Ruby Knight' from the Sparhawk series. I have had to replace my paperback copies a lot though, Regardless, I re-read these every year or so. They may not be on par with WOT or other fantasies, but man, it is always like visiting long time friends. They make me happy, and tell a story I enjoy. When my son reaches an age I think he's ready, I'll put pawn in his hand, and open up his world, just as my Dad opened mine! Edit: for my terrible spelling
