Hey! I'm a Utah Sanderfan, and I was trying to find other people I can talk to about the books (Because I have no friends who like Sanderson...) I might not be able to come on the 19th, but I'd just like to get integrated into the community right now.

I might be able to come, but that's the first day of school for me... We'll see. I will try to come, definitely, but there's a chance I might not make it.

I'll be there. We're play-testing Cosmere Cards Against Humanity still, right? Also, I should be able to bring pizza this time around.

Aww, that sounds fun. Oh well, next time. Got to help my cousin with her marriage reception prep.

Does anyone live more northerly?  Like, Davis County?   :)  just wondering.  I only know one other person (in person) who talks about the mysteries of the Cosmere.

 

( Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this ! )

 

I'm in Bountiful, but my work schedule is not conducive to meeting very often.

Well, kind of. It's not an official club, but we meet up once a month and eat pizza and chat.

That sounds like a great time!  I wish I was coming back to BYU in the fall so I could be a part of it.  But I'm staying home until I leave on my mission.  

 

I am going to visit in October for General Conference and the Shadows of Self release.  We should totally do something then!

Maybe the Friday before Conference. That would be great. (Not so great for those that aren't part of the Church)

Well, probably easiest would be to just meet up at the Shadows of Self release party. There'll be people there for a week before waiting in line. It's a nice chance to meet some people from 17th shard that you haven't seen before in real life. 

 

Then we may be meeting together at the end of October. Maybe not. We'll see what we decide about it eventually.

For the Words of Radiance release, they numbered everyone on Monday morning, and let them all go.  Then everyone came back at 10pm for the release party, and they didn't lose their spots in line.  It was really convenient because I slept outside the bookstore on Sunday night, but then I was able to go to my classes on Monday.  

 

If they do it like that for the Shadows of Self release, maybe we should all meet up for lunch or dinner on Monday.

Did we want to meet on the third floor again? Same place we met last time?

Sure. I'll wait down in the lobby of the JFSB for a bit in case anyone new shows up, but let's do it up there.

 

Thankfully, I'm pretty sure EFY is over now because this week's education week.

If anyone wants to come a half hour early and help me finish cutting cards, you would be my favorite.

7:00 in the JFSB at BYU. Go ahead and go to the lobby (there's some tables behind the big spiraly staircase), and we'll then migrate to somewhere else.

 

Lyssie, I might be there early, but I really need a shower first. I'll do it quick so I can come help though.

Should be able to make it, unless a giant boulder just so happens to crush me before I can make it.

So we had a great time, we played Cosmere against Humanity, (which was a blast), ate pizza, and rather enjoyed ourselves! 

 

The next meeting is going to be September 15th, a tuesday, at 7:00. Then we probably won't do anything for Shadows of Self- we'll just have fun with the people waiting in line!

Awesome, I can probably make it this time!

 

Woah, people camp outside the bookstore a week ahead of time?!? Why...? do the people earliest in line get to meet Brandon or something? Or do they run out of copies?

Noooo! Slowswift, you will be missed. 

 

And yes, people do camp out for a week. It'll only be about a dozen people or so that are there long before hand, but they mostly do it to get a low number. Brandon signs and numbers the first 1000 books that are released, and 500 are sold at Sam Weller's (which you can order by phone or online? I think?), and 500 are sold at the Bookstore. I don't think the bookstore's ever sold out, but I haven't been there the past few years. 

 

You have to stay in line nearly constantly in order to save your spot- you can leave for an hour or two, but then you have to come back or your spot is forfeit. 

 

The Bookstore will give everyone who's in line on Monday morning at like 8:00 a ticket saving their spot in line. People will go off and do things, and then come back for the release. 

 

So Brandon will come early to the release (like at 7:00 or something), and will sign & number the first 500 books. Then, at like 11:00, the bookstore will let people in and they'll have some contests (costume contest, some mini games, raffles, etc). Brandon will also do a Q&A. 

 

Starting at midnight, the bookstore begins to sell the books, and those who are happy go home, but if you want it personalized by Brandon and want to meet him, you can get into a second line to do so. They'll still be minigames and such going on.

Just so you all know... you can already preorder Shadows of Self from the Bookstore. My aunt and I have already done it. And I'm still uber excited.
