BOOKS DO YOU READ THEM

in the middle of the WALWAB audiobook and i agree pretty enjoyable and easy to listen to without listening too hard.  More of a record of possible future events as recorded by an asperger future seer than straight up fiction, told very matter of fact.  I'm a little surprised its published, seems more like something an amateur would write for a reddit writing prompt or a blog a la Jason Dies.  In fact feels a lot like watching someone else play a very open-ended video game.  So works for me ;).  And i was thinking the same thing this morning that a surprisingly large number of "humanists" are just antisocial misanthropic cynical atheists with a conscience or at least some OCD devotion to altruism 'cause its such a simple ethic.  

Either way we keep duplicating a lot of audible purchases :)

Damn, I better get to reading again.  I can't remember where I left off, somewhere in the middle of the 2nd book.

edit: Yup, according to my last post about it, I got to book 2.  I downloaded it now, will need to make a concerted effort to complete it.  I'm at page 1412 of 10715...

I would guess the first season is books 1 and 2 (not the prequel)

Probably, but anytime a tv or movie based on a book is released, I find it very difficult to imagine the character as anyone other than the actor playing them in the media version, unless I've already read the book.  It's not necessarily a bad thing, but I feel like it restricts my imagination.

I recently reread A Dance with Dragons (GoT Book 5), and I find it hard to imagine Jon Snow as anyone else other than Kit Harington.  In the case of GoT, I watched the first 3 seasons before reading the books, so I never had a chance to form an image of most the characters in my mind's eye.  I'd like to get through as much of Wheel of Time before the characters in my head get replaced with the actors in the show.

I expect my imagination will be overwritten somewhat esp regarding faces

If I were making the show, it would be

S 1 = books 1-2
S 2 = 3-4
S 3 = 5-6
S 4 = 7-10
S 5 = 11-12 (maybe some prequel)
S 6 = 13-14

IMO (*slight spoiler*) book 4 is where the world really opens up and you start seeing a lot of new things/people

Another audible trial

It says you need to have Amazon Prime and it's three months and 3 credits, but when I redeemed on my main account I got 2 credits and 30 days, it didn't work on my second account so not sure how it'll work for everyone

Don't forget to cancel
