The Wheel of Time
I read the first book around 1993, and the others soon after. I have been buying since The Fires of Heaven, which I got as soon as it came out in paperback and Lord of Chaos which I go as soon as it was released. I have been involved with the internet community since 1994, when I read (and very rarely posted in) the newsgroup rec.arts.sf.written.robert-jordan.
I joined around 2003, joined Dai M'Hael when raised and was bonded later that year, until the end of 2008 when my Aes Sedai stepped down. I have since bonded the wonderful Melana Sedai.
I began submitting articles to the library sometime around 2004/2005, primarily ones I had written for my own personal use (such as whole book summaries) and joined the library team a few months later.
