Countdown to A Memory of Light


Posted by Jason on Jan 03 2013 09:50 AM under in A Memory of Light

A Memory of Light, the final book in The Wheel of Time series, is just days away! Almost exactly 23 years have passed since the original publication of The Eye of the World. On January 8th, the grandest saga of modern literature will be complete.

Are you ready? We are!

Here's a complete breakdown of everything you need to know about the AMOL release.


Where to get it
AMOL will be released in hardcover and audiobook on January 8th. (The ebook will be available on April 9th)

First and foremost, please support your local bookseller. As a community of readers and book lovers, we encourage you to support the fundamental ideas of having brick-and-mortar booksellers in your community.

If you prefer to order online, please consider ordering through these Amazon.com links, as a small portion of the sale will go to support our website.

All I can hear is the sound of Spongebob going "IIII'M READY! IIII'M READY! IIII'M READY!!!"

Speeding  through TGS at the moment trying to get the series done in time for Tuesday,  I may have to stay off the internets for a few days though :P

It's going to be bitter sweet. I'm excited to read the final book but it IS the final book. I just hope all the loose ends are closed up by the end. 

Who has 2 thumbs and is read AMOL right now??

 

THIS GUY!!!

 

AND IT IS E P I C ! ! !  ! !

Gah, I'm only on book 5 of my re-re-re-re-read.  Nooooooooooooooo!!!  Need to skim read faster.  Mwahahahahaha!  Can't wait.

For once in life, Philadelphia has something special coming! I mean I live over the bridge in a cozy NJ town, but I am glad to know I can plan to go! 

 

I have been waiting patiently and I am ever excited to conclude this epic series. And then maybe a proper encyclopedia we can look forward too!

You know the way the first book was released 15th of January 1990? It was released exactly 8 years before I was born, and now the last book is being released on the 8th of January - no wonder I enjoyed the series so much! :D
And why, oh WHY must you not come to I R E L A N D on a book tour?!?!?!?!?! I now beg on my knees and roll around on the floor crying please PLEASE PLEASEPLEASEPLEASE COME TO US!!! :')

This moment is so bittersweet.

I love being in Australia. We get it a good 12hrs before most!

I have been having dreams of the day I read the final book! Every dream frustrates me because the ending is different. I can't wait for the one true ending!

I, like all here, am very excited and thoughtful now that it is so close. I have avoided this, and all fan sites, for most of 2012 to avoid spoilers. I want to saviour every page and word after the majority of my life spent with this series.

 

While there can be neither beginnings nor endings in the wheel of time, this will be an ending.

Wife just ordered it and will be here on tuesday!

Will be tearing my home town to pieces on tuesday to get this book!!!! 1 more day to goooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Been having trouble sleeping, eating as the release date got close. Only good thing is I am working so have things to do to keep me occupied!!!!!!!
Wish I had a TARDIS!!!!!

Nigh on a 19 year old journey almost at an end, during which time so much has happened.  Loved ones lost, loved ones gained. All intertwined throughout this journey through the wheel of time.

 

It feels like I can finally move on and re-begin my life after the final book has been read.  I just didn't know what I was letting myself in for all those years ago as an 18 year old boy.
