    :radioactive: Rereading Diary - where are you? *spoilers*

    Okay, I know many of us are rereading the series all the time and I would like to know where you guys are right now.
    I am rereading WoC and I think I am in the middle of it. Roland has just realised how they can beat the Wolves with the orizas. The way he touched that plate.. it was so damn good.
    Anyway it's my 3rd rereading and this is the first time I read them all in English.

    Where are you?

    Roland would have understood.

    I reread it about 3 months ago. I'll probably pick it up again in a couple of months.
    It'll take a lot more than words and guns,
    A whole lot more than riches and muscle.

    The hands of the many must join as one.
    And together we'll cross the river.

    I am also rereading WotC. Callehan has just finished telling his tale to the ka-tet.

    finished the gunslinger. a third of the way through the drawing of the three. i have the bad habit of reading several books at the same time, plus i normally listen to something on my ipod at night. but since my ipod is being repaired, i'm reading at night now. this reread should go a little quicker - but hopefully not to quickly.

    I just finished The Wastelands and I'm *trying* to wait until the end of July to move on with Wiazard and Glass, because my mom promised to get the three books I am missing for my birthday. With Wolves of the Calla sitting there, staring at me, I'm probably going to give in and buy it anyway....

    I've got about 30 pages left in DT VII and I'll be done with this re-read of the whole series. I'll probably drop it for a while after I get done, focus on some other things. The re reads have been a lot slower since joining the site, I feel the need to mark up every other page in order to discuss things.

    When I am rereading this book (now Roland and Jake are having their palaver about Susannah) I don't feel like reading I feel like being home.

    Spoken like a true DT Junkie!

    I hope you aren't marking up your only copies though...and I hope they are mass market paperbacks.

    Paperbacks for the most part, but I don't mind writing in any of them. Every book I own is marked up from start to finish. I don't collect books for market value, so they're all fair game. I consider myself a bibliophile but not in the sense where the book is valuable only if its perfect. I love battered copies. I love looking at my notes. I also retain much more of any story/poem/ or prose by reading and writing at the same time.

    That's exactly how I feel with this series. Usually, no matter how good a book is I only feel "in it" at certain points, with Roland and his Ka-Tet, I feel like I am walking the path of the Beam with them.

    If I didn't love my fiance and my cat so much--I'd be looking for doors myself!


    **
    As for marking books--the more I love a book, the less I care about how they look. Highlighter & ink pen marks abound and dog-eared pages mark the things I don't want to have to "look for"...books were meant to be loved to death.

    Soon I will finish W&C and I will start SoS. I am so much interested in my opinion this time (I hope it doesn't sound big-heaed).

    Roland would have understood.

    Long time no new posts.
    I am still in WoC because I have picked up a Dean R. Koontz book. *bumps her head to the wall* I am insane. I cannot wait to finish it and to go back to the ka-tet.

    What about you, my dear rereaders?
    Where are you these days?

    Not reading DT these days.
    I read The Gunslinger a couple of months back, but then got sidetracked on other things.
    Currently on Book 6 of a full re-read of Robert Jordan's 'Wheel of Time' (11-book series).
