Peoples,

Memory of Light books are starting to circulate in advance of the Jan release.

And we know, WE KNOW, many forumites are going to want to discuss this book until the wheel turns and the wind blows and the cows come home ...

BUT.... this book is a Big Deal, and we don't want anyone's enjoyment to be lessened...

SO...


Warn in your thread title if it contains spoilers.

DO NOT post spoilers in thread titles.

When in doubt, block -> [spoiler!] stuff [/spoiler!] <- without the ! .

Start a new thread instead of posting spoilers in a spoiler-free thread.


Failure to abide by these points will result in Rodeoranch coming to your dwelling, pantless, riding his horse through your most convenient window, trampelling your computer into sand and then drinking all your alcohol before riding off into the sunset, still pantsless.

And THEN we ban you. Hard. Like the wrath of a cold angry god.


All that aside, i look forward to the book and the discussions that will follow.

Have fun!

I've got my eye out from week to week cause I'm convinced that Chapters Indigo will break embargo on this one as well.

:)

I'll let you know if I get it early.

That wouldn't have anything to do with reddit, eh? :)

I hope to have mine tomorrow from Tor. If not tomorrow then by the end of the week.

Ah you'll probably get it in good time too sir. I'll send out good thoughts to the book faeries.

Desperately trying to finish Perdido Street Station (which is awesome, btw) before my copy arrives. I'm actually scared to find it when I get in from work; it's that kind of massively excited yet 'holy shit, this is IT!' kinda feeling. I originally planned to recap on ToM first but that doesn't seem to have happened. Good enough reason for another entire reread later on in the year, I say!

EDIT: Amazon says it'll be dispatched on Wednesday...fuuuuuuuuuuckkkk. I don't know that I can wait that long.

They are holding tight to the release date. I've checked all the stores in the city and nada.

Thanks! Not only should anyone who spoils this be banned for all eternity (or maybe longer, as Goofy would say) but it's good to be warned to stay away from anything Jordan related for a bit... especially since I'm going to re-read the entire series first, and take my damn time, too!

Thanks, Abyss. I think I'm going to be avoiding the "Other Literature" forums for a good two or three months until I've read this book. Currently on The Fires of Heaven, but classes start this Monday so I expect my reading speed will slow down pretty significantly.

Anyway, enjoy it guys.

Wow, they are REALLY holding fast to the release date. Even with a day left to go, the WORLD'S BIGGEST (who usually put shit out early all the time...because their location is closing and the staff doesn't care) still hasn't shelved it....even though I KNOW from insider info they;ve had the shipment on hand for over a week.

Fuckers.

I need something to read now!

LOL


Oh well, as they say in Les Mis....One Day More!

Gah, just realised that the kindle release isn't until April. Looks like I'll be going to the shop after all.

Actually, i just got one at Chapters downtown on lunch today!

I just asked nicely and the saleswoman went in the back and she had to check with a manager lady and then they came back with three and let me pick one. There was some confusion at the counter when they couldn't scan it because it wasn't entered into the system yet but when i offered to pay cash on the cover price they said okay and then were caught completely by surprise when i grabbed the book, hammered the cashier in the face with it, got the security guard with a gutshot with the spine and then exitted through the Starbucks. The helicopters are circling above but i ditched the radioactive dust-cover and i'm pretty sure i disarmed the tracking chip. Of course, that may not have actually happened.
