    OK gang - I'm a huge LOTR fan and am considering taking the plunge into the whole WOT thing. I've got a Borders gift card burning a hole in my pocket and am the type of person who will read a series over and over if it merits ( ie lord of the rings) I've seen a ton of comparisons of WOT to LOTR so I guess my question is this - should I get a nice set of hardcover books that will hold up well or just grab the paperbacks because these are more of a one read kind of story?

    I would say that it is a multiple read series. I know that I intend to read it again in the near future. If it's in your budget I say go for the hardbacks

    I'm up to book 10. I think number 9 HAS to be my fav! I love the WOT! And I definetly agree w/ Meteorain; don't read too fast. I don't get what that has to do w/ book 10, but I'll get reading and try 2 find out!

    I have just started to re-read the series. Last time Book 7 was only just released, can't wait to see what happens after that one. Am currently about half way through book 2. Love this series.

    Definitely a multiple re-read series.

    Once you've finished it once come to the Speculations section and give us your views on the mysteries.

    After the raving reviews this has gotten around here, I just ordered a boxed set of the first 3 books. Hope it's worth it... sounds like it is. :)

    It's more than worth it. I started reading it because of the great reviews I read on this forum, and I DEFINITELY wasn't let down. Quite the opposite.
