    The last 3 books in this series are stellar. The Gathering Storm is awesome, Towers of Midnight is my favourite out of all of them and A Memory of Light is epic. Some books seem like filler but I didn't mind them like others.

    Agreed. I'd actually given up on WoT due to my feelings about the more filler-y books, and picked Gathering Storm up in some sort of three for two offer I think.

    So, so glad I stuck it out and read the final three. They do make the filler worth it.

    Thanks - it's good to know that it's worth persevering through what I hear are a very lacklustre books 8-10. I really didn't love the only other Sanderson book I've read, I'm eager to see if his contribution to this series redeems him in my eyes.

    You can use http://www.encyclopaedia-wot.org/ if you want summaries on the books you read. Just be careful of the hyperlinks, spoiler abound.

    Useful, thanks! Though it's been around 7-8 years since I picked it up last, I don't remember anything beyond names and roles of the main characters. So it feels like I'm reading it pretty much from scratch this time.

    Just finished up the First Thomas Covenant Trilogy. While the last two books were way better than the first, and while the premise and some of the more existential issues in the series interested me, the actual reading was a bit of a slog, so I don't think I'm going to tackle the Second or Final Chronicles yet, if at all.

    Instead I just picked up Eye of the World ... going to try to tackle WOT once and for all. I can't remember exactly where I dropped it last time, I think around book 3 or 4.

    Really humanises the scientists involved too, rather than treating them as an anonymous homogenous lab-dwelling blob.

    As an anonymous homogenous lab-dwelling blob myself, that is a very apt description

    Love it! I made my first map a few months back, and boy does it take a lot of time, so major props to you.

    What font are you using?

    Started Pratchett's EQUAL RITES, and it is of course great!

    I just started it too! I'm liking it a lot more than Discworld #1 or #2, has more of a plot to it.

    Also just finished Covenant #2 aka The Illearth War. Glad you all suggested I should keep going. Way better than Lord Foul's Bane, but I still didn't fall in love with it. Definitely going to finish the Trilogy, not sure I'll stick around for all the books though. Favourite/least favourite parts:

    My father was born in Wales and a few years back I decided to take a welsh language course. Can't remember much but the alphabet. Ever since I automatically read things as though they are in welsh. So, D is d, dd is th, f is v, ff is f, ll is...actually, not sure how to write that one, schl maybe?

    I didn't write that well. I was meant to be asking if the dd is pronounced as dd (bedding) or th (as in bydd).
    You're right though, Dadding does sound like something fathers would do. Term for tell awful dad jokes, perhaps?
