    Hello!
    I’m Kayle Al’Hoen. I have been instructed by the Queen of the Muffins to get up on this board or suffer the fluffy fury of her army of baked deliciousness. She introduced me to the Wheel of Time books late last year. I went through the first three fairly quickly. Currently, I’m about a quarter way into book 5. So far I hold book 1 and 2 as my favorites.
    Some otherthings about me:
    - I'm a comics nerd. I read stuff like Image's Invincible, IDW's Love and Capes, and web comics like Questionable Content and Dr. McNinja.
    - I'm also a collection nerd. I use to collect a lot of Marvel and DC figures. I'm really impressed with the stuff coming out of Sideshow Collectibles. Recently, Halo and Mass Effect from Square Eniq are pulling me back in.
    - I'm also a gaming nerd. I mainly play Xbox 360. However, I took a year off and now I suck at shooters, so I mearly observe at this point.
    - As for other books, I'm a big fan of Max Brook's World War Z. I hold that as my favorite book ever. I usually read it once a year.

    That's all I have now. Emory speaks very highly of everyone here. I look forward to meeting all of you.

    Welcome aboard, I'm also in book 5. I had to restart it a few times since I never actually made it through.

    World War Z was such an amazing book! Did you also read the Zombie Survival Guide? :)

    Welcome to TV! :)

    Hi Izabella. I have gone through the zombie survival guide. It was good. I was surprised how well thought out all the advice was. Espically on the weapons and using armor. It's hard not to think about that stuff while watching any survival/horror movies now.

    Hi there :) It did the same for me, I've always been into zombies and such... so I've always done it, it's just worse after reading that book.

    Luko,
    Thank you for going to Halo and not Call of Duty. Halo has been one of my favorite games ever since my best friend introduced me to Halo 2. I had to retire my assult rifle a while back (I had sold off most of my games including all my Halo's last year) but Halo 4 is looking very pretty and it'll be nice jumping back into the fight with Master Chief. I'm down for linking up when it hits. It's always nicer playing with people you know won't shoot you in the back for picking up a sniper rifle.

    Qamra.
    Shooters are certainly not for eveyone, espically if you try your luck playing online. I use to be into the JRPG's but not may come out on the 360. I picked up FFXIII and FFXIII-2 recently. I tried playing FFXIII back when it first came out but I had trouble with the first major boss and got too irritated to continue. Emory ended up picking it up for the PS3 last year and just blew through the first half like it was no big deal. Let's just say some RPG feelings were hurt and I'm looking for a rematch.
