Hi everyone,

I am going to move this to the new Elfhunter Book Klub, per the discussion in the thread. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!

    Leslie, thanks for moving the thread.  And thanks to everyone for understanding as we try to respect the local zoning laws.  :D

    Party on, folks!

    We're quite popular it seems..............  We have our own realm to play in now.  Perhaps we can occasionally send scouts to the other realms.   ;)

    Ibrewalot, we're a scouting family too...  my middle son is finishing up the paperwork for his Eagle rank.  Very relieved this is coming to an end....  he cut it pretty close to his 18th birthday!  :)  My oldest is an Eagle and completed his at 16 which was much less nerve wracking!  BTW, your arrow is beautiful!  Outstanding job!

    Hi everyone!  Thanks, Leslie and Betsy for helping us find the most appropriate home for our socializing!

    I hope this means Carolyn will feel comfortable coming back and chatting with us, whether about archer's books, her books, or anything else under the sun!

    The good thing about this thread moving all over creation is that I'm exploring more forums! 

    Archer, I have no idea how you do everything you do....  horses, dog breeding/showing, working, writing....  You must sleep only a few hours a night!

    Carolyn, thanks for answering my question.  I'm now unconfused and can happily continue reading.

    I'm watching a few extra kids today so won't be on-line much.  The weather is beautiful and a local park is calling us to come and play.

    Happy to find this happy thread in its new location. This does seem the best place for this thread.

    I will be away from computers (except my K2 for today and most of this weekend. Have fun all.

    Have fun, Anna m'lass! I shall formulate an evil plan for our upcoming book klub (after examining the pioneering paths of those who have gone before...)

    Lessee now. How about we all read it in Japanese?
    (nononono...hasn't been translated yet)
    Okay...ummm...we all read it from right to left like it's IN Japanese? (Or Rumhul)
    (nah. That's just weird.)
    Okay, ummm...how about we read a certain amount every day/week and I think of a few entertaining questions to get things going?
    THAT might work.
     :)

    You could run portions of text thru Babblefish (http://babelfish.yahoo.com/) and then we could read it in your language of choice...

    Dana, thanx for the cudos on the arrow.  It was fun to make and my oldest really appreciated it.  He crossed over into the troop last night at the pack meeting.  Now I have a new Boy Scout and a Tiger cub.  Guess I'm in this for the long haul!  ;D  I'm the Committee chair for the pack and am trying (unsuccessfully) to keep from signing up for too much in the troop as well.  We'll see.

    And, Archer, thanx for sending the weather my way...we had snow coming in to work this morning!

    Now that it's Moving Day, I've bookmarked the new Elven forum retreat. :) Hi, everyone, and thanks for the kind welcome.

    Speaking of elves, I'm re-watching the Lord of the Rings movies because of that 'Taking the Hobbits to Isengard' video, and have to say that Celeborn is so...well...gorgeous! :D

    I've never done a book klub before, but thought it might be interesting, so I just downloaded Elfhunter.  And I also one-clicked the Ryel Saga, it sounded pretty good too.  I needed a break from vampires, werewolves and serial killers.  Bring on the elves!

    Welcome to the Klub, stacydan!   ;D  It's a great group here, I think you'll find and the author taking the journey with us is fabulous.

    The Boston terrier on your avatar pic is a cutie--reminds me of the one my in-laws used to have.

    Welcome, Stacydan!
    Love your baby Boston.

    (Ummm...guys, ixnay on the erialsillerkay!)

    No...no serial killer in Elfhunter. Nope.

    Well...at least there are no vampires or werewolves. Did you ever notice how HAIRY Celeborn's arms are?
    Seems kinda un-elven to me.

    Hm, I always remember him in those gorgeous robes that covered his arms to the wrists (and admittedly, I was only really looking at his face!). :D
