Hi I'm new to the forums. Read the first TC books back in high school and they really hooked my interest in fantasy. I actually read The One Tree first cause it was a gift from a friend. This time I read them all in order. I don't have the best memory so it was fun to find out what I remembered accurately and what I didn't.

Just reading the last chronicles but can't find The Last Dark on kindle which i think is kinda weird. I read everything on my kindle now it's just so much easier than print books.

I'll be looking for something else good to read soon. Love Brandon Sanderson can't wait till he gets more books out.

Hello Cyn Blue Wave

I have TLD on kindle - Amazon have it. A few typos (or perhaps bad OCR recognition). I also bought the hard back to complete the set. Very Happy

Hi CynBlue,

Welcome to the Watch!

Lots to do here. If you have already finished The Last Dark you may want to join the forum for discussing it. There's lots more SRD-related stuff, discussions of his other works, arrangements for the next Elohimfest etc. There're also forums (fora Laughing ) for music, film, literature, comics, sport, politics etc.

If you need recommendations for what to read next the Watch is one of the best places to ask. Some people here seem to have read absolutely everything (and still managed to have busy RLs Big Grin ) This thread is a great place to find out what people are reading and to ask for suggestions for what to read next. (We also have a Watch fantasy/sci-fi book club.)

I hope you find some useful things here.

Be Welcome and True!

u.

Welcome to the Watch, CynBlue!

Amazon does have a Kindle version of TLD, I assure you. Why it is currently not available, I cannot say, but it has been offered and bought before. Check again soon and it will probably be back.

May you thrive here...and contribute.

(Menolly, I won't speculate on what motives u. may have. Welcoming new members is a courtesy that is like a drink from a mountain stream. However, if you should happen to be right...well, as you have heard Dam-sel and me tell Dam-et, "It's OK to want...") More Razz

Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.

Where's wayfriend to pun on CynBlue's oh so punnable name! Laughing

u.

P.S. I have no designs on SD's job. I like to welcome people when there seems to be no one else around, but I'd hate it to become a chore. SD and Menolly maintain a courteous grace that I would find hard to match and even harder to sustain. Long may you both be the official Welcome of the Watch! Big Grin

Welcome to the Watch, CynBlue. I have no idea what ussusimiel is talking about. Unless you're sad, or are a Na'vi, or live in Who-ville, I don't see what's so funny.

So, does this mean you haven't read other SRD's books?

You welcome people whenever you like, and don't let anyone tell you different. Very Happy

Welcome to the Watch, CynBlue! I'm quite new to the Watch, myself, as far as registering and posting goes (I've been reading on here for years, though). Be welcome and true.

It's always sorta weird when that happens. Very Happy You feel like you know everybody, but nobody knows you.

Nice to have you out of the woodwork. Very Happy

EXACTLY. Like meeting celebrities, even, when you're sure you know them from following their work but they don't have the slightest idea who in the world you are.

I appreciate the welcome from you and others, Avatar, and wanted to pass the good feeling on.

(One of the features I like about this site is that we can click on the "Good Posting" button whenever we want to thank somebody. If it weren't for that, I'd end up making many posts and taking up too much space--that people would have to scroll through--just saying, "Thank you...Thank you..." It's nice that I don't have to do it that way, as I'm a most thankful person, and can get carried away with that sort of thing very easily.)

But it's better not to use just that button alone if it's about an artwork or a fanfiction, the artists and the writers get little attention here often - it's much preferable to state what you think of their works in actual words.

Also, the Good Post button doesn't show up in every forum.

And people don't get a message or something saying they were "thanked" or have any way of knowing which post it was.

So it's nice to say something too.

(And we have nothing against lots of posts. Wink )
