Same here. I just started up my KoD prep reread. I'm going to blow past a lot of the filler in the first 5 or 6 books, since I know those pretty well. For the first 150 pages I just stuck with the prologue, the intros for Moiraine, Lan, and Thom, Moiraine's tale of Manetheren and some of the other key highlights, and skipped through the more boring Two Rivers intro info. I know what the place is like already.
For the next books, I'll probably skip over the boring parts with the girls and the Aes Sedai plots, except for the more pivotal stuff that needs refreshing. Mat's plotlines will be read in their entirety, because they're a hoot to read.
