I'm new to the series, and after picking up EOTW at a bookstore a few weeks back, I've finished a book a week since...well until now. I'm now at about chapter 29 of Book 3 and I'm bored out of my mind. In the time its taken me to read the first two (because I COULD NOT put them down!) I've only read about 3 chapters of Book 3. For chapters now its been; Mat getting better, Mat getting better, Mat eating....a lot, Mat gambling....the girls scrubbing pots, looking for the Black Ajar, scrubbing pot. The back of a cereal box would be more interesting. Please, someone tell me this all picks up again soon. :?
