We seem to have come to a grinding halt at present and we also seem to have discussed all the Pern collection.

Is it worth going on to; say the 'Ship' books?

Or the 'Talent' books since they were part of this years quest?

How say ye?

I for one say - Merry Christmas, P'ter, and let's talk about this in the New Year *ducks and runs*

Yes, P'ter seems to have a bit too much time on his hands, oddly enough! Eager Beaver P'ter!

Not at all; hardly a spare minute. (Just impeccable timing)

I was merely sewing a few seeds so that they can germinate fruitfully over the next week or two.

I don't know if you're interested, but we're doing a Book Club over on AMCF. We'll be starting in January; the first book is The Years of Rice and Salt by Kim Stanley Robinson.

If you're going to do an "Anne" Book club, I'd be interested in reading the "Talent" series along with y'all.

We've been doing discussions of Anne's books for quite a long time know, if you're interested, check it out.

We are an Anne McCaffrey dedicated board and while we do have a forum with threads, advice and exchange about other authors we currently do not do book discussion about other author's books.

I understand on all accounts, Hans, I was just inviting people to join us on AMCF for our discussions, and indicating interest in the "Talent" series.
