    I have visited the site in the past, but have decided today to actually join.

    I initially began reading WoT years ago while in school, but life got in the way, and I set it aside. Then, my life was plummeted into chaos and so I turned to reading. I picked up WoT again. I started from the beginning, and am currently on Book 11. I am so happy I found this series again.

    I love the epicness of the series. The diversity is awesome. There is something for everyone. My favorite character is Lan.

    If there is anything you would like to know about me, please let me know.

    Thank you both. I suppose I really need to get an avatar.

    It will take me a bit of time to learn my way around.

    Welcome, Dar'Jen!

    Lan is absolutely wonderful. I can't wait to see what they do with him in the TV series.

    Which is your favourite book so far?

    And if you have any questions about learning the site, there's plenty of people who will be willing to help! :)

    I don't actually have a favorite book, but more like favorite scenes. I like when Lan is teaching Rand to fight, when Matt is dealing with sorting out "his past" and dealing with the dice in his head, when the Aiel are presented with their true historic past. There are certain scenes that linger with me.

    Such great scenes. The ones with Mat and his past especially are among my very favourites as well :)

    Thank you all for the warm welcome.

    I hope the avatar I found works.

    I'm wandering around a bit to get a feel for the place. Thank you all for being so welcoming.

    Welcome to here, Dar'Jen! :joy

    Very much this for me ^^

    Also, your avatar's face reminds me of @Nymala Ingasy 's avatar.
