Ain't that the "sooth"?
I read the first chronicles when I was in high school. I used to keep a piece of paper in the book on which I would write all the new vocabulary words. I'd look them all up once I finished. I think the new words were my main motivation for finishing the series, even as a teenager I could recognize bloat.
