  1. The signing in Birmingham started out for the Memory Keepers with 6 of the 7 of us meeting at a local restaurant for a quick bite to maintain our strength because we knew that it was going to be a busy night. We went into the Books-a-Million around 6pm to get organized for Brandon and Harriet’s arrival. Since it was raining and there are two entrances we staked out both. As luck would have it, I stepped outside just as Brandon and Harriet were dropped off by their driver. We got to meet with Brandon and Harriet in a back room to get our books signed and do a quick Q&A session. It was an amazing experience! Jennifer and Jimmy Liang (JordanCon and DragonMount) along with Jeffery and Kiley Daniels (Ta’veren Tees) came to enjoy the last AMoL signing of the tour with us! Then it was time to go into the store and meet the crowd. Brandon and Harriet talked to the crowd then took questions and Harriet did a reading from AMoL before starting the signing. Along with the estimated 300 people there was a couple there that had brought their son Rand (cool name!) to meet Brandon and Harriet as well as one lady who had driven all the way from Kansas City and several from Nashville, southern Mississippi, and Atlanta just to be at the last book store signing! How cool is that! A couple of people brought gifts for Brandon. One who was a B-1 bomber pilot brought an arming pin to a B-1 bomb that he had dropped and another person brought a FBI patch, hat, and ink pen shaped like a bullet. There were even a few people there in costume and they looked amazing! TOR had sent a lot of swag that we were able to hand out. Black shoulder bags and iPhone cases with the WoT and AMoL logos on them and a box full of The Way of Kings paper backs. Which was a good thing for some because the book store ran out of a most of Brandon’s books that night. After everyone had been through once and had their books signed Harriet left because it was getting late but Brandon hung around to personalize books for fans and answer more questions. It was a great night and we met a lot great people. Brandon and Harriet were great and it was an experience all of us Memory keepers will never forget! I know I'm leaving out a lot, but hopefully the others will post their experiance here as well.
  2. I love Dragonmount! I've been coming to the forums for almost all of the 13 years it has been up. I use to Have the username Caramoore on here. You guys rock! Thanks for everything you do!
  3. Where can I get info about the poker game?
  4. Gay, Lesbian, Straight, Bi.. I don't really care. I think that we all have the right to be what we are born. As for reading about a gay character, it doesn't matter to me at all. As long as it makes sense in the story. I love the Last Herald Mage Trilogy and the main character is very much gay and that doesn't hurt the story but in fact makes it a better. Granted as a young man in rural Alabama reading that story the first time bothered me but that was my own failings not the stories. There are always going to be people who hate, don't understand, or are scared by things they don't understand. Whats the expression? Haters gonna hate..
  5. Cleansing of the source and the battle that goes on around while it happens just barely edges out the Mat/Tuon scene. Of course ask me tomorrow and Mat might win..
  6. SPOILER My favorite is when Lan raised the Golden Crane!
  7. I can't believe all the complaining.. We all love reading these books or we wouldn't be here having this discussion. I for one look forward to reading these 3 books like I have no other. I just hope he settles "who killed Asmodean".. lol. Relax and enjoy
  8. What about (and this is a stretch I know) he was already a warder when he meet Susa and by taming him it means she convinced him to run away from his duty and when he ran away from her he was afraid to go back to Verin (or who ever)
  9. Verin is the Creator's Avitar.. She knows all... bumpbumbum
  10. I agree about the "Lost Swords" books. I managed to read the first 2, but I disliked them so much I couldn't make myself read anymore. As for Finishing before 40, your luckier than I am, I'll turn 40 in June of 2009.. :'( Which is probably 20 years older than the average age for this forum.
  11. My first foray into Fantasy type books was Terry Brooks - Sword of Shannara, and Roger Zelazny's Amber series. After them I was hooked. Of course I had read the Hobbit/Lord of the Rings. And I really loved C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia. I think they are not just children books. R.A. Salvatore, Raymond Feist, and David Eddings are probably my three favorites after Jordan. That's my 2 cents worth anyway...
  12. Not trying to shoot it down, but do we even know if Lanfear was free of the Bore at this point in the series. Sorry if I'm sounding like an idiot but I haven't done a re-read in a while and I'm too lazy to look it up... ;)
