If your local library uses Overdrive for ebooks, "Oathbringer" may be available to place on hold. November seems a long time off, but it'll be even longer if you don't get on the hold list soon. :)

Good tip. Although I don't use libraries, it's also handy to have a reminder about this. Soon the challenge will come: will I be able to remember who all the characters are? :p

I agree... I'll probably buy it, though. These are books that, like with Robert Jordan's novels, I want to be able to go back and read the series several times due to the complexity and enthralling depth with which they're written.

Oh, I will certainly buy it, both audio and ebook. Sanderson is one of the few that I know I can buy sight unseen.

But, will I have funds available on release day? So, I place the holds at the libraries. :)

Good tip! With the first two, I bought the ebook, and then the paperback when it came out...

In cases like this, I often look up the plot for the past books in the series on the internet. The first two Stormlights have wikipedia entries. ;)

A few months after finishing Bane of Souls (which took me the longest to write of anything, simply because I took my time) I forgot the name of the second most important character. Names aren't my strong point...

Huh. They're releasing quite a bit of the book for free. Why is that?
Its the endings that count for a Sanderson novel! He always seems to share a lot of previews or sample chapters. He wrote and posted Warbreaker on his website. And that was the complete novel!

I started reading Oathbringer last night. If anyone needs a refresher on book 1 and 2, TOR also has a recap that covers all the major points:

I got a coupon for a book for my birthday a couple of months ago, and I've been saving it specifically to buy this book. I'll probably go get it this weekend. Psyched!

Great book so far. I love Sandersons writing style and characters. Its been a while since a read a book this thick, but the higher word count works for a book with multiple POVs I guess.
