I'm re-reading Way of Kings with my hardback trying to decide if I want the next one in hardback or if i want to go the convenience route and get it on kindle.....and Im leaning toward hardback!

So bought the hardback.....I would have gladly paid double what I paid for it. Sanderson can write!

I read the first one, and was disappointed. I like Sanderson's writing, but this just seemed long winded and self indulgent. He had a dozen ideas for stories, and instead of writing one, he crammed all twelve into one book. And then it's going to be stretched out for nine more books, each 800+ pages. He needed an editor. It just hasn't grabbed me like other epic fantasy.
