One of the things I love about this list is our rambling.

But we do do this sometimes too, so maybe we should again.

Topic for discussion (first thing I thought of!):

In "Deep Secret", Maree describes Nick at one point as "sweetly and kindly 
and utterly selfish".  Based on the evidence in that book and in "The Merlin 
Conspiracy", who thinks Maree's description is accurate?

Until the sky falls on our heads...
