Hi, I’m ‘Mac’. >35 <50. A Retired and Disabled Warder Type. I am a voracious reader and always have been. I was into Role Playing in the 80’s and have read Fantasy pretty comprehensively, or… so-I-thought! For some reason, quite probably, professional commitments, I missed (completely) knowing anything about WoT. When Amazon announced the show, I read up on its background and very much liked the look. I wasn’t disappointed and so begins the ‘binge-gorge’ of the physical books. I found a link to Tarvalon in an ebook and… here I am, at your service, you wonderful Aes Sedai, and all others whomever may need: conversation, laughter or help. Take care, Mac

Welcome Mac!

I like how you gave an age range - a man of mystery. What book are you on?

Hi! Thanks, all. I did ‘New Spring’ from Tuesday 01:00hrs to Wednesday 02:00hrs in 2-3hr chunks. Today, I start ‘Eye of the World’ and will binge-gorge the rest of the series as the days go by. I’m going to get the ‘Box Sets’ too, as I know I’ll read them again and, I grabbed the ‘World of and Companion’ books too. I love the series and I’m an utter book buyer extraordinaire! The house can barely fit anymore books - anywhere! Still, as Sheryl said ‘If it makes you happy…’ Yes, Melorea, a little mystery keeps the world interesting ;) Mac

:welcome It's it crazy that after reading fantasy for so long, you can still discover a hugely popular series that you've missed all these years?! I love those kind of discoveries, in part because it means the entire series is complete and I can binge-read. :laugh:

Yes, Maibella, exactly that. I have so many books waiting to be read (I need to stop buying for a while). However, along comes WoT, and.. well, even Winston Churchill is in the queue behind WoT, and that, is the highest compliment one can pay to the author and his series of amazing books.

Thanks, Leala. I’m quite partial to adapting all things Scottish when it comes to creativity. I often come up with ‘Scot-i-Fied’ names for a lot of things. I look forward to hearing about the ‘Clan an Na Caleum’!

That's so fun!!

Well, I'm part of the Ridiculously Long Tower Name Club. :laugh: I started out as Leala al'Dareis. I just took "Dareis", which is Old Tongue for "spear" and stuck an al' on it, then I got married, and took the Borderland tradition from the books of adding my husband's last name of al'Caleum to it. He took it from a Final Fantasy character. :)
