A Memory of Light

It was an adventure. Monday night I visited Provo, UT to attend the Q&A and signing of the last book in the Wheel of Time series. A Memory of Light.
Then I attended the midnight launch/signing and picked up my copy. I'd say it was a historic event. Of course, very busy for my tastes, but it was manageable  Thanks to the help of family I was only #479 out of 2100+ books sold that night in that bookstore I'm told. Which means that I was finally through the personalization line (Since the books were pre-signed.) and got to have Brandon write a brief message and take a picture.
Like the series, this book is more about all the people who put it together and support it, not just the writer. So they also had many of those people here. Harriet, Robert Jordan's wife, was at the Q&A and she also signed the books. Maria, who worked heavily in the world for continuity, and others who contributed heavily to the books production.
I got through the line around 2:30am. Brandon was already very tired and there were still hundreds of people behind me.  Probably not thousands. Most picked up their book and went home. Likely because Brandon lives locally and can personalize their book later.
