  1. About 650, not including the lengthy author's notes in my copy after the tale is done.
  2. I really enjoyed it. Some of the bits Sanderson talks in the annotations about not liking how it turned out I had no issue with. I'm hoping he does actually write a sequel; he deliberately left some things open for a sequel that I would like to see settled.
  3. Warbreaker is all done. I'm starting a reread of The Hobbit now. I've not read it in 30 years or so.
  4. What happened to the color palette? It would show up sporadically for a while after the site came back online, and it's never in my formatting controls at all anymore. If I have to add color to a post (or even if I judt plain feel like it), I have to do it manually. And some colors require an actual RGB code instead of a color name, which means with no palette, you have to go look it up before you write your post. Brown is 964b00, according to Wikipedia. The forum doesn't recognize the color name, apparently.
  5. Sanderson loves his appendices. There's about 20% of the book after the end of the story itself.
  6. Well, she did have a Brown mentor....
  7. First. Basel Gill, Brown Aes Sedai. I think Daniel Dae Kim could rock it.
  8. I read Way of Kings, but that's about it. I'm hoping to get to WoR sometime this year.
  9. ...and Hoid shows up. I'd been wondering how Warbreaker would tie into the rest of the Cosmere, although I suspected it'd be Hoid-related somehow.
  10. So I had been finding Warbreaker slow going. Unbeknownst to me when I bought the ebook, I got the author's deluxe annotated edition with his notes on writing each chapter, and each chapter having a link to that part's annotations. I'd been reading a chapter, then reading the annotations for it. The upshot of this was that I was reading what my device claimed was a 656 page book with about 900 pages in reality. The annotations were interesting. His notes on how things progressed through different drafts were worth reading. Then in the annotations for chapter 10, he suddenly dropp
  11. If it isn't Momoa, I think Caviezel would be a good second choice. He can handle the fight scenes although I don't know how good he'd be with a sword. At the very least, he should get enough consideration for the role to be a person of interest.
  12. Basel Gill, Brown Aes Sedai. My first choice would be none of these. I name Jason Momoa.
  13. So I've been reading Warbreaker for the first time, and having some amusement over one of the main characters being named Siri.
  14. Hello Olwena! Having librarians as your parents must have made fora very bookish household growing up.
  15. Hi BB! Good seeing you in here again. I hope your job search goes well.
  16. Tress, your challenge with Mrs. Clov sounds a little like one of the challenges in a Goodreads SF&F group I'm in. In addition to the main GR challenge, they have several challenges for the group focused on the genre. One of them is a bingo card challenge with 24 categories like woman author, non-human protagonist, book with a dragon (WoT could count, I suppose), author you've never read before, etc. I put myself down for 9 but wonder if that's optimistic as some of the books I plan to read this year either don't fit easily into any of the categories, or are from the same series so fit be
  17. I have about 100 pages left in Firefight, and I'm trying to make up my mind which to read next. I'm considering Dresden, Potter, or possibly Warbreaker.
  18. I'm down for 10 books again this year. Completed: 12/10 1. Firefight - Brandon Sanderson 2. Proven Guilty - Jim Butcher 3. Warbreaker - Brandon Sanderson 4. The Hobbit - J. R. R. Tolkien 5. The Graveyard Book - Neil Gaiman 6. The Philip K. Dick Megapack - Philip K. Dick 7. Daemons Are Forever - Simon R. Green 8. Diamonds Are Forever - Ian Fleming 9. Words of Radiance - Brandon Sanderson 10. Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince - J. K. Rowling 11. A Crown of Swords - Robert Jordan (reread) 12. White Night
  19. It depends on the scent for me. Never have I ever gone to a county or state fair.
  20. Here. The Greene woman looks a lot like I imagine Min, but Jessica Stroup could work too.
