    Damn 45 bucks for an audio book. Used my audible free credit for it and will cancel subscription after, do I keep the book?

    I remember reading something from Sanderson where he said he saw King writes 2k words a day, so if that was good enough for King that was good enough for him.

    The difference with Brandon is he’s said he doesn’t do a ton of revisions compared to other authors. So he writes, revises a few times, and boom, new story.

    I just finished Oathbringer. November is an eternity away - not only for book reasons.

    So, next... Mistborn or Warbreaker?

    Warbreaker has more characters you will recognize from Stormlight Archive. Mistborn is better. Can’t go wrong though.

    I’d probably go ahead and knock out Warbreaker since it’s stand alone and SA is fresh on your mind.

    Just finished Warbreaker yesterday; took me a while to get into it but the back half was quite good.

    I just finished Hero of Ages, should I move on to Alloy of Law? It’s usually hard for me to get into sequels that don’t include the original characters.

    Yes immediately. They’re great and there are plenty of callbacks to previous characters and plot lines.

    Thought I had ordered a while back, but remembered after this post that there was some issue with Amazon the first time I tried. Long story short, I have officially preordered. Let the reread begin

    I’m only halfway through WoR in my reread so it’ll be a minute for me. I’m unwatching the thread until I finish. See y’all on the other side.

    I read chapter by chapter recaps of the first 2 books and EdgeDancer in preparation for book 4. I still need to read the recaps for Oathbringer as well.

    I am almost done with Fires of Vengeance (released last week) so will finish that first, read the OathBringer recap and start book 4 at the end of this week. I am excited.

    Got mine today as well. This is my first hardback in the series. Holy shit the book is massive. I have 1/2 a book to finish first then will get to this but is likely going to take quite awhile.

    Not sure I've told this story or not. My wife playfully made fun of the size of the book calling me a nerd etc. Well I took one of the hardback books on vacation and my bag got flagged for soemthing. Wife looks at me and says "if it's because of your huge nerd book you'll never hear the end of it"

    Spoiler alert: it was. We both got a huge laugh out of it when my book arrived yesterday

    My wife cracks me up with the reading. I'll go 2-3 months on/off where I read almost every night instead of watching TV. She bragged the other day that she read an entire chapter of one her books. "Congrats on reading 20 pages over the course of 6 months." She likes to have people recommend books and she orders them and never reads them.

    I am 6 chapters in to Rhythm of War - I am quite impressed!

    Highly recommend you read recaps of the previous books at the very least otherwise it will be difficult
