    Fantasy series by Brandon Sanderson. Only one book has been published thus far, The Way of Kings. I love it but no other Baggers that I know of have read it yet. Read it so we can be fans together and not be lonely faggots.

    Ok, started the book a few days ago, on chapter 15. Makes me wonder if BS just randomly smashes some keyboard keys to come up with some names and places

    Kaladin is just starting to learn how to use the stormlight, I'm very happy I read this book, It will go down as one of my alltime favs, but bummed about having to wait for more, oh well need some thing to take the place of WOT, and I found it from the same guy.

    Damn, I need to win you back. Have you read OSC's Alvin Maker series? All the books are finished except for the last one. Some people have said that the series goes downhill but I like the whole thing.

    I found it interesting. I would like to see one that shows him writing to see the speed at which he writes. Like, does he think about every sentence or does it just flow. I imagine it flows which is something completely foreign to me.

    Cool. Warbreaker is good although if I had to rank his work (not counting WoT or his juvenile series) it would go...
    1.Stormlight
    2. Mistborn
    3. Elantris
    4. Warbreaker

    Good to know. Probably wasn't going to read them anyway. It sounds like the Rithmatist is for older audiences than those were.

    Well, after 66 reviews on audible, the Rithmatist has a 4.8 rating which is the highest I have ever seen there. I imagine it will come down some, but still very promising.
