A friend ( @Ilissa al'Nari ) bugged me again and again during the winter 2008/2009, saying I had to read these books. I gave in in February 2009, and I'm so happy Ilissa wouldn't back down. I was hooked after reading about half of the prologue of The Eye of The World! Then I was told I had to join this site, and in April 2009 I did. That was one of the best decisions ever. I found friends here, and the Tower is family to me.
