All will be well and all will be well and all manner of things will be well, but they sure would be swell if I was rockin' a new WoT backpack...
SerDragonReborn
35. Gtomich
I truly love this series. Anticipating the last book and loving all this WOT!
SerDragonReborn
37. Kathleen Moore
What a fantastic way to count down to the final book! I started reading the series at age 11...I'll be 34 when the last book comes out. Yes, that means I've spent two-thirds of my life wondering what's going to happen! Can't wait. But at the same time, I don't want the story to end...I'm holding a memorial service here for RJ the night before MoL comes out. Such a shame he didn't live to complete his masterpiece.

42. Brian D.

"Thank you"

More backpacks? Woo Woo!
SerDragonReborn
68. Josh Davila
Wow I can't wait to finally read the last book!!!
SerDragonReborn
69. Debbie Roth
Winning this contest would really make my year. Getting lost in books is how i survive, and no series compares to wheel of time. I have desperately looked forward to reading the conclusion for so long, those around me think im a little loopy because i count the days. These books have strong arms that carry me thru the hard times in my life, these characters have strong souls that infiltrate my dreams, sleeping or awake. My nine year old son pretends he is the dragon reborn, and if i ever have a duaghter i will name her Nynaeve. The wheel weaves as the wheel wills...

I'm game for a new backpack. Or is it an old backpack that was meant to be a new backpack? Wait, maybe it's a new backpack that was meant to be an old back pack that I've already received. In either case, count me in!

I'm anxious to read this. When a new author picks up an established series, I'm a little leary. Losing Jordan was a great loss. Allowing his series to go on well will be the greatest leagacy given to him.
