Hello Everyone!  I was very excited to discover the 17th Shard.  I am new to the Cosmere and have only ready "The Way of Kings" so far.  I just started "Words of Radiance" yesterday....I guess if there is a positive to 2020....its the year I discovered The Stormlight Archive.  I absolutely love it!

Welcome @VanDemus Baxter! I see you have moved your post to a thread of your own :P

The Stormlight Archive is probably my all time favorite. It makes me so excited that you’re in the middle of reading it! What’s been your favorite scene so far? Or scenes, if you have multiple.

Welcome to the Shard VanDemus! We are excited to have you join us!

I would so agree with Rosharan here the SA is amazing and you are going to absolutely love it! And man that does make a positive for 2020.. heck maybe even like ten positives! :P WoR is my favorite book in the series (so far) so I do so hope you enjoy!

To avoid spoilers so far (unless you don't mind then by all means go ahead :D) I would stay out of the book specific sections and General Cosmere discussion until you get more into it! The Community section and this 17th Shard section should be fine though. Happy reading!

Welcome (Again)!! I'm glad you're reading stormlight!!! The 4th book is coming out soon, in 23 days! (I think). I just started Words of Radiance for my Stormlight reread too. 

If you had to pick something, whats your favorite part of Roshar so far? My favorite is all birds are called chickens :P

Hello! As some people have already said, watch out for spoilers!

Also, I would personally recommend reading Warbreaker between Words of Radiance and Oathbringer, for reasons I won't say because of spoilers. ^_^

Who's your favorite character so far? I really like Navani and Adolin, but you don't see a ton of Navani's qualities that I like until Oathbringer.

Welcome to the Shard, @VanDemus Baxter! You picked quite the time to get into Stormlight! Book 4 will be releasing soon! So you can read them all back to back and then go read Sanderson's other books. Be careful though, the forum is full of spoilers!

The Cosmere Chat Discord server is the best at avoiding spoilers if you want to avoid spoilers and want to gush about the books with fellow fans before completing the series/published books.
