    So WoTonPrime is doing a reread of the series, and I’ve been wanting to do a reread for a while myself. Anyone interested in joining me? I’m not sure what WoTonPrime’s schedule will be, but we can either wait until they release it or just come up with one of our own.

    ~EDIT~ We'll be starting with New Spring. Here is the schedule:

    New Spring Re-Read Schedule

    Friday, May 22 - Thursday, May 28: Chapters 1 - 5

    Friday, May 29 - Thursday, June 4: Chapters 6 - 10

    Friday, June 5 - Thursday, June 11: Chapters 11 - 15

    Friday, June 12 - Thursday, June 18: Chapter 16 - 20

    Friday, June 19 - Thursday, June 25: Chapters 21 - Epilogue​

    Sure
    I remember we started one a few years back, so another could be good. Any chance to have people read through and see if there are things missing in our chapter summaries is good (Though I doubt it, the first couple of books at least are extremely thorough, later books have more sparsely populated notes sections)

    When you start a reread do you start with New Spring or with EotW?

    I tend to start with New Spring myself, but it looks like WoTonPrime is going EoTW. It looks like they started the other week--should we catch up or do our own schedule? It looks like they're only doing 3 or so chapters a week, so we're not far behind :)

    I would like to start with New Spring too, since I haven't read it in a long time. I am fine with us doing our own thing if everyone is up for it!

    New Spring sounds like a great place to start to me, keeping our own pace means not having to rush, so we can take our time if we want.

    Sure, that could be fun, a slightly different way of reading the series

    Arella, that sounds awesome!

    Ilverin, I'll update it now ^^

    When does everyone want to start? How many chapters a week do you think is reasonable?
