Now that the 14th and final volume of Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series is out in paperback, I figured it was time to start reading them again. I got to book 7 or 8 when they came out, but eventually gave up. Each book is an 800 page brick, and so much time went by between instalments, I couldn’t remember the names of the characters, much less the convoluted plotlines.
I started applying the same strategy to other book series, too, and loved it. Among other things, I never had to wait for the next book to come out after a torturous cliffhanger!
And it’s even better for TV. Not only are there no commercials when you binge-watch, but you don’t have to arrange your life around TV schedules. Or buy a PVR.
What about you? Do you keep up or binge-watch? Or use different strategies for different series?
