    :lol ohh nooo I'm glad it worked out.

    ftr not sure if you know, but you can highlight specific text, and then hit the "reply" button that pops up next to the highlighted bits, and it'll quote just that stuff.

    as for the books, I have no had time to read for almost a week and it's making me really sad. I'm maybe 3/4 or 2/3 ish through the book now and things are really starting to pick up.

    Onto WoR now. I remember much, much less about this book than WoK, even though I've read it more recently. I'm still pretty early on in it, though

    jasnah has already "died" and Dalinar is implementing his crazy plan to unite the Alethi

    @Asandra al'Terra do you remember more about this book than WoK? I did remember the end of WoK really well, except I couldn't remember the exact circumstances why
    dalinar gave sadeas his shardblade, just that it had to do with the betrayal, and that he did it on his own

    I'm still working on Way of Kings, but my sister-in-law is a big fan and has the Movie In Your Mind version from graphicaudio.net and gets Brandon Sanderson stuff for my brother a lot.

    I'm sensing a group read coming. :shifty

    I finished WoK last Wednesday and have been reading WoR, though I'm only about 200 pages in. It's really funny what I remember what I don't, and where things came in.

    I remember the Jasnah thing, and I remember something else that i SWORE was in Book 1 but is actually somewhere in Book 2 unless I made it all up:

    Kaladin and Shallan hiding from a Chasmfiend -- I swear that's a thing...

    That being said, the
    Dalinar shardblade
    thing you mentioned earlier I COMPLETELY did not remember and was super taken aback by it/casually crying in the restaurant and trying not to :lol

    All in all, my brain is weird and useless.

    Asandra, that event does indeed happen in book 2. It couldn't have happened in book 1, they weren't in the same place ;)
