Thank you! I have been thinking of making a thread to write down my thoughts as I go through the remainder of the books. I'm having a lot of fun so far! :)

Welcome! I LOVE The Shadow Rising. It's one of my favorite books in the early series.

Thank you! I'm enjoying it a lot so far and just reached the part of Rand learning who Selene is after all this time

Hehe, it's been so long since I read these books the first time (1996) that I have forgotten what I was thinking at the time, but I imagine it was something like "gods you really are a woolheaded shepherder, aren't you". When I read the first books I was 16, and identified very very strongly with Egwene. Now as a 40-something I identify more with Moiraine and to some extent Siuan, I imagine when I am 80 I will identify strongly with...well, certain characters that you haven't encountered yet, but are just as strong personality-wise as Egwene or Moiraine.

It has been hard knowing all this time and waiting for him to finally learn of figure it out for himself. I definitely identify Moiraine in the way she's trying to get done what needs to be done but nobody wants to cooperate completely or gives her a hard time even though she knows what she's talking about. Likea teacher trying to prepare an unruly class for an important exam. I worry about what will happen with Siuan from the way Elaida seems to be sniffing around quite a bit and has been pretty unpleasant about her and a lot of others

Welcome Blythe!

I discovered WoT way back in the mid 90's when a dormmate gave me a copy of the first book. While her name is lost to time, I am forever grateful for her generous act! That one book got me hooked and over the years has led me to new friends and new adventures.

I too would like to hear more about your rocks and minerals!

Thank you! I'm glad to have discovered WoT due to the show coming out and being able to join in on the fun with other fans. I usually get to things late or they have a microscopic fanbase. I'm very excited to talk about the story with others and make new friends

I did take some pictures of a few of them yesterday but I'm unsure of where best to make a thread about them

Hmmm... you could make a thread in either the Science & Technology forum or the Makerspace forum under Discussion Hall. If you are using them for art projects, Makerspace would be a great place. If you are collecting them for scientific / educational purposes, then the Sci/Tech forums might work better.

I don't make anything with them and collect just for fun so the sci/tech forum sounds like it would be the best place. Thank you for the help!

Hello, Blythe! A bit of a late welcome, but a heartfelt one nonetheless. I saw your introduction thread when it was put up, and I thought "I'll get around to it, I just need to finish this ooooone thiiiing..." and the next thing I know, you're a Citizen! :laugh: It really threw me in for a loop, I thought I'd accidentally been gone longer. Either way, it is nice to see you settling in. :pleased-1:

Thank you, I appreciate your welcome! :) I did become a citizen awfully fast that I hope it wasn't too quickly! I am a very go go go person sometimes and that does make me hasty sometimes :$
