Upon learning that TOR is going to split A Memory of Light into three books I couldn't help but think "wow, that's a horrible decision to make", considering the state of the story (bloated, moving at a glacial pace) before Jordan died. Frankly, do we really need to see some kind of closure for every minor character that's been jammed into this story? You know, the characters kept well past the point of relevance,like dinner guests who won't get the hint that it's time to leave. Probably not.

But then I read Sanderson's post, and I hate to say it, but it left me feeling excited to finally, truly see the end of the series. I really did not think that was possible, since the last few boooks had soured me on the series. I think part of my changed opinion has to do with the fact that he's actually, you know, DONE with the first part. After so little time has passed, relatively speaking. That we will likely see a book this year, and the next two years. That he doesn't sound burnt out- he's very upbeat even though he's probably receiving a ton of negative email for various reasons.

So yeah, I will probably buy them when they come out. And in the meantime, I will probably pick up some of Sanderson's work to read, so I have some idea what to expect. My only hope is that when they do come out, they are offered in hardback and kindle versions because I will likely buy the kindle version first. :D
