It was amusing to hear Wildlx and the Lt comment on the story. Easter was a bit of a lesfic fest for them both I think!

So, I have read the first chapter. I am toying with the idea of blogging the book as I read. Anyone interested in reading that?

Yes, I am and I think I should read the book too. I have Crisco here this weekend and she is thinking about reading the book too.

Blog it Baker!

Yes do blog, please! My favourite wtf moment on Chapter One is:

As Sasha was explaining the café’s location, Arthur’s cell phone rang. “It’s the King himself,” he said before moving to the far side of the room to take the call.
