Cool! I already read the whole series  :). I'm currently reading The Eye of the World, partly because Jordan chose Sanderson to finish the series. I liked the first book in the Codex Alera series, and I want to read Academ's Fury (it's the next book, right?), but i got Shogun, Watership Down and To Kill a Mockingbird for Christmas, so it will be a while before i'll go to the bookstore again  ;D.

I got two (exceptional) Thai cookbooks for Christmas... and 4 volumes of the user manual for my new digital camera...

I'll probably spend much of tomorrow reading the camera's manual stuffs.

Surprisingly I didn't get any books this year, will have to remedy that next year.  :D

I really hate to quibble, but actually Jordan never met Sanderson. It believe it was his wife that choose Sanderson to take up the mantle.

I also love Thai food.  My collection of Thai cookbooks now numbers at around 7 or so...

I'm going to have to bug my dad to make some Chicken Satay with spicy peanut sauce sometime soon. Haven't had that in awhile and it is too delicious.  :)

The only time I ever tried to make Satay was when it was dark and it was an undercooked failure (the sauce we made wasn't good, either, probably because of a bad recipe).  I'll have to try to make it again some time, though I really don't do much grilling—I prefer to work over a wok or pot.

I'm reading the First Annual Collection of "Year's Best Fantasy" Short stories.  In the past I haven't read much in the way of short stories, but I've got to say, I've enjoyed quite a few of these and I'm thinking it is a good way to learn about other authors without buying too many books :)

I think I'm going to have to look into that there Gloria. Sounds like my kind of thing.

I'm reading MB #1, Inkdeath, breaking Dawn and Tales of Beetle the Bard. I'm more focused on Breaking Dawn because that's a fast book to read. I can read like 100 pages an hour.

Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

I just finished Tooth and Claw by Jo Walton, and it was great. Now I'm reading Blood and Iron by Elizabeth Bear, which is good so far, but I'm not sure how it's going to go.
If I had any clue, would I be here?

I just finished Hero of Ages and I must admit that I was a little disappointed. It was slow and drawn out in my opinion, but admittedly I did have very high hopes for this book, perhaps to high. I'm now onto The Magician: The secretes of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, By Michael Scott. It is a young adult book but when I read the alchemist(first in series) I found it engaging so I hope this one wont disappoint.

First of all I want to say that I loved the Misborn trilogy. You are entitled to your opinion and thats cool that you share it.

Second, What books are you talking about. an Immortal named Nicholas Flemel sound eerily similar to Harry Potter. Also having the other book named the Alchemist makes it too close to ignore.
