So Roxy had another seizure last night, just after midnight. I’m sure she planned it that way so John could enjoy it on his birthday. She’s fine this morning.
Are you ready to make fun of me? Here you go.
I have been reading Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series since sometime in 1991, shortly before the third book came out (I think). I used to reread the entire series whenever a new one came out, but around book 8 or so, I started rereading only the last few. Now that book 12 is coming out (in ONE week), I’m only rereading the most recent book (which I’ve only read twice anyway). Robert Jordan died a couple of years ago, leaving a ton of notes for the last book and some completed sections, and another author I like (Brandon Sanderson) is completing the series. Of course, the last book has turned into the last three books, but there’s a plan to get them out in a reasonable amount of time. I have faith in Sanderson (who is a fan who waited for years in between installments with the rest of us) to stick to his plan.
Anyway, I finished Thornyhold yesterday (liked it very much), but it was really just filler until I permitted myself to reread Knife of Dreams (book 11 of WoT). The new book, The Gathering Storm, comes out next Tuesday, and I’m afraid I’ll just have to find some excuse to visit a bookstore that day before I get home from work… I’m very excited. 🙂
