I'm new to Dragonmount so I thought I'd say hello.
I am a retired sailor and back in the early to mid 1990's, while floating around on various oceans and seas, I began to read the Wheel of Time series. I made it through book 7. Unfortunately book 8 hadn't been written yet. So I waited.
While waiting for the next books I got married and had a child. So life got in the way for a while. We all heard of RJ's illness so we waited more. More deployments came and went. Eventually I forgot about finishing the series.
Then in 2020 I heard they're making the series into a TV show and I though HEY! I should really read these books before the TV show comes out.
So here I am. I re-read books 1 thru 7 and have finished reading 8 and 9. I'm just starting "Crossroads of Twilight." At this rate I should finish the series in a couple of months. I'm REALLY looking forward to seeing WoT on Prime.
