A 22 year long era of my life is about to come to a close. I guess I can’t actually leave work to start reading…
My tenure of working in bookstores (one stint at B. Dalton and one at Borders) can be summed up thusly: at least once a day customers breathlessly enquiring whether the latest Robert Jordan was out yet because, “he’s sick - he might not finish!”
Guess he pulled through.
Actually, he died. When he knew it was likely, he started finishing the most important parts and left tons of notes for the rest. Brandon Sanderson was chosen to complete it. He has done an incredible job, in my opinion.
