    Hi.

    I started reading WoT at least 10 years ago, and I am probably on my fourth or fifth reread now. It is hands down the best series I have ever read. I recently bought A New Spring as I've never read it before, and anciously waiting for The Wheel of Time Companion to enter my mailbox. The wheel is certainly going very slow now...

    PS: I'm sorry for using Aviendha's name in this forum, but this Nickname has been following me since the dawn of time. :)

    Thank you. :) I'm reading book nr. 6 now. Should I wait until I've read the whole series before I start reading A New Spring?

    It came out between books 10 and 11 and I personally find that that's a good time to read it. I did like that I read it before the final books since it gave some more insight into some of the characters.

    Welcome to Tar Valon! Some of the books in the series do seem to drag a bit. I think that A New Spring is a great book to re-engage your interest with.

    Hey Maviendha! GORGEOUS name! I always thought Aviendha was the prettiest name in the series, and I think the M makes it even better. Welcome to Tar Valon! I think you'll find several members have modified character names, so you won't be alone. :)
