    So, I've read Brandon Sandersons book 'The Way of Kings' and I loved it, the only problem is, I can't find the next book in the series!! The series is called 'The Stormlight Archive', if anyone can find the next bloody book, I'd greatly appreciate it!!

    The second book is Words of Radiance and it is even more amazing than the first one!

    When you go buy the book, bring a backpack. It might be a little heavy :look

    If its anything like the first book, then it shouldn't bother me. Much.

    Also, be sure you're well rested before you start reading. Words of Radiance kept me up way past my bedtime multiple nights running.

    The third book will likely be called Skybreaker, will feature Szeth, and will be out in late 2016.

    This is where e-readers come in handy ;)

    E-Readers? Nah, I prefer a good, reliable hardback book.

    I used to think so too, but then last year I bought a Kobo Aura and my shoulders are thanking me big time.

    For Sanderson books. I like to do my initial read on paper, and then rereads can be electronic. His books do add a lot of extra to the story. Maps and sketches and the like.

    The maps and sketches are great, if onlythere were character sketches as well.

    :lol Sorry, didn't mean to hijack this thread with a discussion of e-readers vs hard copy books.

    I agree about the drawings and maps though. I read the Stormlight Archive books on my e-reader and found that it was a bit frustrating not being able to refer to the maps easily.

    That said, I was actually not a fan of the Stormlight Archive books (so far, at least). I had a lot of difficulty getting into the story, largely because I couldn't figure out what the point of it was. :scratch :cheese I'm sure all of the scattered storylines will come together at the end, but I like to at least have an idea at the start of the story as to what kind of resolution it's building to (without the specifics, of course), and this series just confused me.

    To me it made quite a bit of sense, the different storylines tell stories that play off of each other. Giving information and events and the reader will be like "oh wow, this is happening here, so that means... but in this chapter he doesn't know!!" the stories play off of each other making the reader want to see how, or if, the other people in the book will react and use the others.
