    Hey All,

    I’m Dars. I live in Alaska, which is kind of like the Two Rivers in more ways than one. I enjoy music, writing and languages, hiking and biking outdoors, and reading sci-fi and fantasy. My favorite non-Wot book is probably Dune, and I am a longtime Star Wars fan. I started reading Eye of the World about a year and a half ago, and have of course found WoT to be a very addictive habit ever since. I could quit, but I don’t want to. I am just jumping into A Crown of Swords now. As far as characters, I probably relate most to Rand, and I have also always had a soft spot for Nynaeve.

    When I first became aware of this site awhile back, I resisted looking around too much for fear of encountering spoilers, but having explored here more, it seems way cooler than I would have even imagined. A great thing to be able to interact with others in a positive environment, sharing common interest. I look forward to getting to know you all here, and being involved in any way possible.

    I do have a love of puns, which I conscientiously try to limit my use of, but I should probably apologize in advance for making anyone’s eyes roll. ; )

    Dars

    Welcome to Tar Valon!!! You're going to love it here! :D

    If you love puns, you should read the Callahan's Cross-Time Saloon series by Spider Robinson. There are some spectacularly awful ones in there. They even have a whole day dedicated to the pursuit of all things pun.

    Welcome. I understand the fear of "Looking around" before reading. Luckily since there is just a specific area for talking about the books themselves there is lots of lands to play in without fear of spoilers. Enjoy your stay.

    Welcome Dars! I enjoyed some of the Dune books myself, although I had to stop after Children of Dune cause it just started getting ridiculous. The miniseries was pretty well done, too.
