So is anyone willing to 2nd day ship a book to me for free?  Or can anyone buy Sanderson's book on Amazon and put my shipping info as the shipping info, so they are buying me books through Amazon?  I am a level 3 poster here on the boards, so don't I get some entitlement for free Sanderson books??

Well, I'm a level 8, so obviously I am entitled to compensation more than twice that of yours. I think that if you would be my undying slave, that should measure up nicely. They call Brandon the Evil Undead Overload, so I'm sure he would not be opposed to giving me some undead slaves who happened to be named "UtopiaGreen01".

I'm kind of surprised UtopiaGreen is even posting in an existing thread, rather than just starting a new one.  I just looked at his stats: 37 posts, 18 topics created, 5 polls created.

I think most of us have seen the results of Utopias threads. Most of them die quickly. This one is kept alive for simple fun. the only other one I found that is still popular was the "QUESTION" one about abortion. That one started good conversation that Utopia doesn't even take part in. Plus the pole at the top was terrible. I think we should keep this going and if Utopia wants to PM me his personal mailing info Ill send him a copy of the mistborn series seeing how I have two of each. Im keeping Elantris though because I only have one.

For then wilt we be never rid of his purile polls and brazen begging or his exuberantly misplaced sense of entitlement. Please, I beg thee by all that is holy (including the Green Monster at Fenway) to reconsider thy plan!

Just realize that if you send it to utopia, you won't get it back.

I'm a level nine poster, so does that mean that I get three times as much stuff as utopia? So I should at least be entitled to a free car or something like that.....

I love how he thinks that posting more than 50 times on a website entitles him to free stuff. Especially when you look at people like SE and Sprig with massive post counts. At first I was just annoyed by this thread, but I now find it genuinely amusing. I think it's because I've stopped trying to figure out if Utopia is actually serious or not and just decided to start shamelessly mocking him.

But I agree, Green, if we ever want to hear the end of Utopia asking for free stuff, thou shouldst not sendeth the book(s).

Thats fine, I plan on buying HoA and then the whole set again. Hopefully in a box set in paperback to fit my shelf.

If you are referring to a certain, um, I dunno, "wall" that happens to be located in left field of a certain baseball park, then I'm right there with you.  ;D

OMGSH the ONLY reason I know what you're talking about is because they built a pretend one for my cousin's birthday party a few years ago. ha ha.

Greenmonsta. . . . don't give him what he wants. lol.

Also, I think it would be REALLY REALLY sweat if they did hard leather bound copies. :D  That would be so amazing!

I'd buy one for every single book he puts out.  :)

Leather bound is a really nice idea.

Me too. ha ha.

I think it would be amazing to have one of all of his books in leather bound.  I mean it would just be so cool. ha ha.  Then I'd have to get them signed. >.>  <.<  -Stalks Brandon-

That's a brilliant plan, GreenMonsta.  I wish I had thought of it first, really, what better way is there get his actual address so I could go to his house and mock him in person.   Ummm...I've got some extra books too, so go ahead and send me your address and I'll get right on it.
