Words of Radiance Preparation

Look at the beauty, love the beauty
March 4th, 2014 a momentous moment in my reading life occurs.  It is the release of Book 2 in Brandon Sanderson's Stormlight Archive Series.  WORDS OF RADIANCE, which just from the excerpts, glimpses, discussions, quotes and synopsis may just be my favorite book of the year.  Seriously have you seen the coverage over at the blog?  Check it out. 

For such a magical awesome thing I am taking the day off from work.  My plan is to be the first person in my local bookstore to pick up a copy.  If all goes well, much like when THE WAY OF KINGS came out they won't even have the boxes unpacked before I'm through the door looking for it.  That's how I roll.  I plan on spending all day reading this. 

To prepare I am going to re-read THE WAY OF KINGS from now until Monday March 3rd each night and livetweet my impressions over at PRLiveTweets.  And by impressions I mean--I've read this book 5 times already and listened to it twice so really I'm just going to remark on things.  That's roughly 75pgs a night give or take, though I'll not be ending in the middle of a chapter so that could go up or down depending.

Join me!  I'll keep spoilers out so if you haven't read the book shame on you but I'm sure it will be great fun for everyone.  For more in depth analysis I urge you to check out the re-read thread over at because quite frankly, things get fierce over there when debates occur.  Fierce in a friendly way mind you.

The saga of Roshar is far from over
