Someone on days of quorum past mentioned they won actually. Not what one might consider a 'regular' but certainly someone around here :)

Was actually mentioning in a thread (too?), Parsh was the user.
“I am a warrior of ages, Anasūrimbor . . . ages. I have dipped my nimil in a thousand hearts. I have ridden both against and for the No-God in the great wars that authored this wilderness. I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury.” -Cet’ingira

Right, Parsh.

Whose name unfortunately reminds me of that South Park episode knocking on eighties ski movies. "Oh, hey there, Darsh."

I wasn't, but now I am.  I wouldn't let myself even click on the folder for this forum until the book arrived, which it finally did yesterday. I'm just 100 pages in, and haven't found as much time as I want to read this (I mean, obviously not, because I've had the book 24 hours and I'm only 100 pages in).

And here I am complaining about time to read, so what do I do? Oh right, come log into the forum. Clearly, I am not a self-moving soul....

But anyway, yes, I won a copy on Goodreads. Which is good, since it meant I didn't have to argue with my wife about whether to buy a copy or feed our children.

I'm glad for all parties involved that it worked out.

Also, tbh, probably WAY better to take your time and actually... 'read' ... the book we all waited all this time for. Not sure I understand speedreading it in massive sessions - that just leads to forgetting and/or missing crucial details.

Of course, you were summoned here by mention of your name, so its not your fault ;) .

Yeah, I'm not really a speed reader. My wife is, but then a month later she can't remember names of characters, the name of the book, the overall plot... you know, all those minor details.  :D

Did you win an official copy or was it an ARC?

Lol, especially with Bakker, all those one-off sentences across seven books that add up to really interesting moments.

ARC. There are a lot of typos, but then, given what I've seen from Overlook, the name refers to their copy editing procedures, so most of them will still be in the official copy.

Anyway, inside the ARC I'll be reading about the ARK. It all fits together.

Definitely.

Yeah i've only started to get into discussion after a partial re-read. AS i keep saying though i have a good memory for retention of text, just not the intelligence to interpret that information in any logical way. So i'll tell you what is in the book, you tell me what it means please :P

This is a good system. We need more people fact checking ;)

Ah that's too bad, you're going to have to stop wearing it now I guess, as you've already had your assignment given ;)

Oh yay. You can look forward to the paragraph from an internal Overlook email buried in section of text ;).

Oh, that makes me what to find that study about the different profiles of people who participate on forums. People quoting the text are definitely part of a healthy forum community.
