I ran into the WoT FAQ in mid-2009, which reminded me I'd been meaning to reread the series at some point. This took a bit over three months:
The Eye of the World(2009-03-05): I'd forgotten quite how much he'd managed to cram into the first book. Being a slightly older and wiser fantasy reader now, it feels more than a little contrived in places.
The Great Hunt(2009-03-10): aha, this feels more like the later books...
The Dragon Reborn(2009-03-21): I'd forgotten how suddenly the ending came in this one. Everyone's in Tear, then someone spots Rand and *bam* the prophecy's fulfilled. Hohum. It's fun getting there, anyway.
The Shadow Rising(2009-04-06): since the male leads are grating somewhat by this point, I'm rooting for Nynaeve on this reread.
The Fires of Heaven(2009-04-23): again, I'd forgotten how much happened in this one.
Lord of Chaos(2009-05-12)
A Crown of Swords(2009-05-19)
The Path of Daggers(2009-05-31): the Ebou Dar battle at the end is really pretty tedious.
Winter's Heart(2009-06-08): better than I remembered. The bit with Mat and Tuon at the end is inspired.
Crossroads of Twilight(2009-06-22)
Knife of Dreams(2009-06-25)
What I'd really like is a
making of book, describing how Jordan planned
and implemented the series — if nothing else, it's a spectacular feat of
