BOOKS DO YOU READ THEM

I think the ratio of finished/unfinished threads in WoT is relatively high, and probably comparatively higher when weighted for raw thread count

Finished book 8.  It's short relative to the other books, but some important threads have progressed, others have unraveled, rather explosively.  On to book 9.

I'm reading book 4 of the stormlight archive, which is Brandon Sanderson's big thing, I went through the audio books 1-3 as they released but I don't remember what any of the proper nouns mean and who most of these people are or most of what has happened, kinda feels like a calculus midterm from back in the day, anyways the books are ok I guess I'm having an ok time

That's why I feel like I have to power through WoT.  Not that it's not interesting, but know in like two years I'll be like, who the f is Cadsuane?  

I remember back when I had tried to pick up WoT again for the 2nd time, I came across Loial, and I realized I had no idea what an Ogier was...

I had a co-worker who said he enjoyed reading multiple series at the same time.  I'd be so confused if I started another fantasy series.

I skipped over most of this thread because I started reading WoT and it seemed like there might be some spoilers in there. I’m on book 4 and at my current rate of progress I’ll finish the series around the time I retire.

Nice!  I'm half way through book 10.  I've slowed my pace a bit, but I might get back to a book a month.

Just finished book 10.  I suppose I'll go back and reread the prequel.

Just finished New Spring.  Definitely had more impact knowing the characters.  On to book 11.

Brando Sando time, I think you'll agree he does as well as anyone could have,

Mildest of mild spoilers below non plot related:

he is on record saying the biggest thing he gets wrong at this stage is Mat's characterization, so don't assume something weird is going on with Mat
