Missing Wheel of Time Books
Did I happen to loan any of you books 1 (Eye of the World), 3 (Dragon Reborn), 7 (Crown of Swords), and 8 (Path of Daggers) of the Wheel of Time?

Obviously I am missing those installments and I need them so that I can loan them out to someone else :)

I have paperbacks of the whole series if you want those. Otherwise I was gonna take them to the bookrack.

Thank you for the offer. Two of my missing ones (7 & 8) were in hardback, so I am determined to find those. If none of them turn up, I'd be glad to have yours if for no other reason than to loan them out. I could reimburse you for shipping. I think they have a decent bookrate on shipping.

Let me know, otherwise I think bookrack would give me more for a whole set. I had them in hardback + paperback, but now that he's not able to write anymore I'm downgrading to just hardbacks.

If you can get decent money for them, please do so. You can put that money toward getting the hardback copies. I'd prefer to have all hardbacks myself. If I don't track down my old copies soon, I'm sure I'll have another opportunity to buy them in time.

Several years ago, I stopped reading them and chose to only buy them and let them sit on my shelf. I got genuinely pissed when he chose to write a prequel (which I refused to buy until I found it for $2.50 at an outlet bookstore) instead of working toward finishing the series. That and the last book that I tried to read (9 or 10) was slow, uneventful and plain boring. I figured that I'd eventually reread them all in one swoop, but he, alas, did not finish them.

I suspect a 12 will come out based off his notes eventually anyway.

I would have to reread the whole series to remember everything whenever a new book came out. Blame my parents, who got me reading them when I was in Jr High :P They weren't the best books I know, but I started reading them at an impressionable time so it was a goal to finish the series one day.

Like getting Martin to finish his next book...

No shit. The latest book was supposed to be 1/2 of the next installment, which he assured us would be out within six months after the 4th book.

It has been, what, two years?

Gah.
