  1. Hello there, thought I would jump in and say hello, I am Maera (or April at home). I am currently on my first read through of wot (book eight at the moment). I have not been so captivated by something since childhood, very happy to be here. I was slightly disappointed it may be released on television before I complete the series (I had no idea it was being made).So am in a battle with time to have it read in time, but what an absolutely pleasurable battle it is. Would love to hear from other new readers to see how the series has affected you (and old readers of course, as I am sure you remember the feeling!) I think I knew I was always going to read the series one day, as a child (perhaps only 6 or 7) - before I was into fantasy books (and by fantasy I mean Harry Potter & CS Lewis haha), I remember seeing the the covers on the shelves of our SMALLLL public library and was very confused as all the grown up story books looked so boring and dull, but these books looked cool, colourful and full of adventure, but I picked it up and couldn't even understand some of the words being used, but the memory stayed with me. A few years later, my Dad got a new girlfriend and on first visit to her house, I saw the books again for the first time and asked her about them. She told me a bit about them and said when I was a few years older I might like them. Well twenty years later, with very little knowledge of adult fantasy (played a bit of final fantasy RR, hearthstone, read some game of thrones), I took a risk and bought the lot in a commitment to finally do it, as though I had already known I would fall in love with it. I find myself thinking about the characters, or comparing my small problems to things they have had to face and it actually helps me. I find many of the cultures and characters have wonderful lessons to teach, and find myself spilling out some of Siuan's silly fish quotes as well as catching myself saying 'the wheel weaves as the wheel will' to my husband. One thing I was not expecting was how similar my husband is to Perrin - in stature, thinking, nature and personality and it has been like falling in love with my husband all over again (as much as I hate to admit it, I also share a few of Fiale's negative traits). All in all, in less than a year, it has completely changed my life in wonderful ways, I am also looking for suggestions for more fantasy I would enjoy that I may have missed being a late bloomer (have started Stormlight Archive however wanting to now leave it for when I have finished WOT). I am from Australia, so apologies if I do not reply promptly, as we are likely in very different time zones, and I do not have a spare portal stone. Maera.
