Who'd've thunk?

I get a knock on the door today and find a package lying on the ground. I'm thinking, Aubrey must have ordered something, but no, it's addressed to me. At this point I'm a bit excited, I don't get things in the mail all that often. To my surprise, it's The Gathering Storm by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson.

I know I didn't order this, but how cool to just randomly get this. Come to find out, I won it at and I completely forgot that I even entered. This version is signed by both Brandon Sanderson and Robert Jordon (although I have no idea how they got the latter). Thanks to only the best! This just made my day.

Just to let you know, anyone can have up to three chances to win this same book or another by heading over to the contest at the top right of the screen. :) Just trying to spread the love.


  1. Wow, that's awesome! Enjoy the book! I love Brandon Sanderson's books and have been considering starting the WOT series again (I had stopped at book 3, many years ago) though I'm not sure if I'm up to such a huge commitment right now. That is curious though how they got Robert Jordan's signature on the book.

  2. Thanks! I was starting book 6 when Robert Jordan passed away, so I've been kinda waiting for a sure ending before I give it all another go. I'm excited since I've heard lots of good things about the book and I loved Warbreaker. I own Mistborn and I think it's gonna be the next series I start.

    I've begun to only read long series (such as Wheel of time and Malazan) with month-long breaks in between installments so I don't go crazy. It actually helps me enjoy everything much more since I don't feel so trapped. :)

  3. Wow, congratulations on that. Perhaps the book was signed before his passing? If so, that is an extremly wonderful treasure.
