    Please note I haven't looked at book 5 yet, so I don't know page counts or anything at this point. I'm going to start aiming to keep the reading at 100-120 pages per week, so the chapter count will fluctuate from week to week. That 50 page chapter in TSR was a killer!

    Right now, we're looking at 2 more full weeks of TSR. The week of August 9, we have 2 chapters of TSR.

    We have 2 options:
    1. Read just those two chapters, and have an easy week.
    2. Read those two chapters, plus however many chapters from book 5 will fill out the page count.

    Poll will close August 5, in time for me to have time to make the schedule for book 5. :D

    Looks like just 2 chapters is in the lead.

    Please note, we will not be reading chapter 87 because it doesn't exist. :look

    Can I read an imaginary chapter 87 where it tells me most of the events of Winter's Heart and Crossroads of Twighlight were just a dream and we can skip them this reread? :look

    I would also like to read more. I'm starting to get really into the story at this point and having problems not rushing ahead. ^^

    DEAD EVEN now. Maybe we'll do a compromise. I'll be looking at page count and such this week, so we'll see.

    Compromise sounds good. :) I understand people wanting to read the normal pace. I do love WoT and am enjoying the reread, but I voted for the slower pace since I'd kinda of enjoy a week to read more of the other books I'm reading.

    Correct. We'll finish off Shadow Rising, plus the prologue of Fires of Heaven. The prologue is only 25 pages, but it gives us a start on the next book and is still an easier week. Which I kind of need right now. So I'm being selfish. :look :p
