I have just started The Dragon Reborn

The great journey continues. The Wheel turns.

There is a certain cafe that my family loves, my parents going there since before I was born and we still go there now; the effect being that my sister and I truly grew up eating breakfast at this place. A place that is a bookstore as well as cafe, and I remember well a conversation I had with my Dad there in which he was trying to convince his very young son who then did not like reading at all to let him read The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien aloud to him.
That is one memory, but another is seeing The Wheel of Time on the shelves year after year, namely the third book of the series whose title and cover imprinted itself on my mind.

A book I have just started: The Dragon Reborn, volume #3 of The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan.
The Dragon is reborn and the Last Battle comes, chaos grows as wars sprout like roses, false Dragons still linger, and white-cloaked foes both loyal to the Dark and Light rise. Long has the world dreaded the return of the Dragon, long has prophesy promised his return. Now he must navigate that world.

Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time.
