State of the Sanderson should be interesting this year. He's coming up on a VERY heavy Cosmere workload because of everything that needs to be placed between Stormlight 5&6. He's made hints that Elantris 2&3 and Nightblood might come into play as well, and he's also stated that he doesn't want there to be too much of a gap (he wants to limit it to 5 years) between Stormlight 5&6. If he can actually keep to all of that, that means in the next decade we'd see:

Stormlight 4
Stormlight 5
Stormlight 6
The Lost Metal
Mistborn 3.1
Mistborn 3.2
Mistborn 3.3
Elantris 2
Elantris 3
Nightblood

On top of that, he's been working on a sequel to Sixth of the Dusk and another unnamed Cosmere novella.

There are some pretty nice deals going on in the Kindle store right now. All three Stormlight novels are $2.99 each, and Skyward is $1.99.

Finished Stormlight 3 over Thanksgiving break. Fantastic series, it's been fun! Now I play the waiting game....

What should I read next? Stormlight 1-3 were my first Sanderson books.

Warbreaker has had the strongest tie-ins to Stormlight. I'd go there next, then the original Mistborn trilogy.

Also, read Edgedancer. It's Stormlight 2.5

If you want to be a completionist about it (and I highly recommend that you do):

Warbreaker
Mistborn: The Final Empire
Mistborn: The Well of Ascension
Mistborn: The Hero of Ages
Mistborn: The Alloy of Law
Mistborn: Shadows of Self
Mistborn: The Bands of Mourning
Elantris
Arcanum Unbounded
