The title of the article is a little miss-leading, but the video was still great.

You know, I read the Eye of the World when I was in Middle School, and just last night, at 11:35 PM, I finished the last book, A Memory of Light. These books have defined my growth, and have no doubt influenced me in all kinds of interesting ways. I am sorry to see them go.

Also, I am near certain that this will be the last truly major series that I will read entirely in print. I am sorry to see this happen, too.

I'm relieved and saddened to finish the Wheel of Time Series, it seems like yesterday that I picked up Eye of the World (instead of 20 years ago). I wonder if I'll ever invest that amount of time into a series of books again... probably not. Thank you Mr. Sanderson for finishing Robert Jordan's legacy!

A Wheel of Time, Dragonriders of Pern, and Earthsea will forever be attributed to my love of reading andfantasy above all.

God bless you Robert Jordan, Anne McCaffrey, and Ursula K Le Guin.
