    Hello, I am Josofina, I come from Norway and someone told me about this site today on Facebook. I haven't been here before even though I have heard about this for years.

    I first found the books in Norwegian in 1999. What attracted me to it first, was the orange color. I didn't start on book one, but after reading these books (2 parts in Norw.), I had to start from the beginning, and I haven't looked back since then. I have read the first books 3 times, one of the times as audiobooks. The last three I have read only once, not because I didn't like them, but I had found other books. Among them Sandersons big universe that I love also. I think it was WoT that opened the English written world for me, at least more than before, I have read only a few books in Norwegian since then, and I am happy for it.

    Now I am reading through the books again in preparation for the tv-show, but now I read along with a podcast, WoT Spoilers. I find that interesting and I learn a lot and they help me draw the longer lines. I highly recommend listening to them or other podcasts about WoT.
