The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan has been escaping me for over two years. It isn’t because I can’t find it (the books are sitting comfortably on my bookshelf), I just haven’t been able to get past the first 5 or 6 pages yet. Oh, and I want to, as the summaries are right up my alley. A friend told me that same series took him many months to conquer the beginning as well, but when he did, it was completely worth it.
Right now that’s my reader Achilles’ heel, what’s yours?
