    Thats a pretty good deal. Hopefully they get a deal like that in the nook because it is easier for me to carry my book to work and use that than a book.

    And for your other quote. Wayne is a great character. Loved his run in with his goddess lol.

    They were of last week so they didn't part anything and amazon released a sample or something that included the epilog or something like that which can spoil an entire book. Pretty much where I check they said not to read it as it wasn't then that wanted it released. Guess that it wasn't the first time amazon had done something like that.
    I'll stay away from it. I really think that Wayne is my favorite character out of all of them that Sanderson has ever written at this point.

    Wheel of time is completed, it's a huge long epic story. Mistborn has two trilogies, one is complete, the other is still being written and both are set in different era's of time and could be read separately. Sanderson has so many books that even though some of his series aren't complete you could spend months reading them all and many of them are connected to each other.

The mistborn Series is probably my favorite of his works and the vast majority of his books are interconnected, but set on different worlds. The dude pumps out books at an inhuman rate and they are all amazingly good in quality. IMO he's one of the best authors of this generation if you are into sci-fi/fantasy stuff.

    And yes, I would also recommend the wheel of time, but be forewarned, it's a massively long series.

    Yeah he finished it once Jordan passed away. I think he did the last 2 or 3 of them.

    As far as recommendations I would recommend his first mistborn trilogy. (Final empire, well of Ascension, hero of ages)

    He I believe is one of the top fantasy writers out there currently. He puts out quite a bit of books. I think Frey just reads his cosmere books but he has other young adult books.

    But I think the mistborn trilogy would be a good start.

(helps that he's a pretty awesome dude too at least he has been at his book signings) They are hard to compare to me though. I felt a bit more attached to the characters in the Night Angel trilogy, but feel like the world in the Lightbringer series is much more developed and fleshed out.

    Since you both know the NA trilogy you'll be happy to know the my Fallout 4 character's name is Durzo Blint haha.

    I enjoyed his night angel series and have heard that one is even better do I plan to start it just debating when.
