Hi, I signed up about 4 days ago and have been looking around trying to figure things out a bit. I joined the tor website about a month ago to start reading the Oathbringer chapters, because, well I have waiting a year to read it! A little about me. I have been an avid reader for around 55 years now. I started out reading Nancy Drew mysteries when I was around 10 or 11, then got interested in Sherlock Holmes mysteries. I started reading Science Fiction and Fantasy when I was around 15 and those two genre's continues to be my favorite, but I read many different types of books and styles of writing. I also read simply to learn and do a lot of researching of things that are of interest to me. I am never bored. I got interested in Brandon's work about a year ago; while I was at Audible, looking for audiobooks by one of my favorite voice actresses. She did the voice over for Warbreaker and once I had listened to it, I knew I had to hear more of Brandon 's work. So I got The Way of Kings, and Words of Radiance. Well I had to have something to listen to while I waited for Oathbringer, right? Then I got Elantris: Tenth Anniversary Special Edition, then Arcanum Unbounded: The Cosmere Collection. I have them all in audiobook format but have decided to get them in book format since it is really harder to pinpoint chapter and verse by using audiobooks. I was read to as a child so I really get into the narrating thing, and I also love to read aloud to others as well, so audiobooks are fun. I have listened to TWoK and WoR around 4 or 5 times now since last year and I figure I have just enough time to listen to them again before Oathbringer is out in November. These are such epic stories and I love them. Once I figure out the finer details you will see me posting here and there around the site. I have lots of questions and thoughts about the story line and little hints that are dropped in the books. I also am haunting the stormlight archive wikia because there is so much really good referenced information there as well. See you in the forums!
I recently joined the forums and do not wish to start a topic in theory or general discussion that has already been discussed--in such cases I would prefer reading the previous discussion and only resurrect it if I have something new to contribute. That being said I have been having difficulty with advanced Boolean search terms. Which Boolean search modifier work in the forum search? Are there non-Boolean modifiers that allow for things like wildcard, proximity, and term order searching? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
So, I was just wondering, does anyone know if/when the next Q&A with Brandon Sanderson on these 17th Shard forums will be? I know there was the one a while ago, but I have more questions and I'm not really in a place he comes to... I personally was hoping there'd be one during the WoR tour for us, but I guess not... So, has anyone heard anything?
