I just love how with some of the books if you line them up right you get a nice flow on the back of the spines. Probably best represented by the Mistborn trilogy.

I'm putting this one in an actual spoiler. Inside is a spoiler for Oathbringer in response to whether a certain character connected to Vasher (from Warbreaker) will show up again.

Spoiler: show
Q: What happened to Vivienna?

A: She’s looking for Vasher. Keep your eyes wide open when reading Oathbringer.

We have an Introduction for Oathbringer (Stormlight 3). I'd recommend NOT reading this intro if you haven't read Way of Kings and Words of Radiance.

Spoiler: show
Dalinar Kholin’s Alethi armies won a fleeting victory at a terrible cost: The enemy Parshendi summoned the violent Everstorm, which now sweeps the world with destruction, and in its passing awakens the once peaceful and subservient parshmen to the horror of their millennia-long enslavement by humans. While on a desperate flight to warn his family of the threat, Kaladin Stormblessed must come to grips with the fact that the newly kindled anger of the parshmen may be wholly justified.

Nestled in the mountains high above the storms, in the tower city of Urithiru, Shallan Davar investigates the wonders of the ancient stronghold of the Knights Radiant and unearths dark secrets lurking in its depths. And Dalinar realizes that his holy mission to unite his homeland of Alethkar was too narrow in scope. Unless all the nations of Roshar can put aside Dalinar’s blood-soaked past and stand together―and unless Dalinar himself can confront that past―even the restoration of the Knights Radiant will not prevent the end of civilization.

Lars posted this. Tor interviewed some of Brandon's beta readers on the process. It's a good read.

We got the UK/Euro cover for Oathbringer. Again, don't open unless you've read Words of Radiance.

Oathbringer is definitely done. Peter Ahlstrom (Brandon's assistant) has completed the tradition of having his daughter throw the completed book down the stairs.

Tor will began releasing three chapters at a time leading up to Oathbringer. We'll get 32 chapters, which amounts to less than a third of the book.

http://www.tor.com/2017/08/15/brandon-s ... ouncement/

I will begin reading and take notes along the way.
