Another full-time lurker here, hello :)

I can't speak for anybody else, but as for me ... well, you vocal ones
ARE a bit intimidating, in fact ;)
However, that's mostly because - as another lurker once remarked -
everyone else here seems to have so wise opinions and excellent
arguments (for occasional disagreements).
That may be because of educational background, I don't know. But after
reading these discussions for a while it you sort of feel silly trying
to join in with "I really liked/didn't like the book!" type of
comment. Well, I do, at least.

Why I read the list, then?
Well, I really like the friendly tone of the list, I really love books
by DWJ, and I get tons of excellent book recommendations :D

So: thanks, all you vocal ones, for these excellent discussions -
please don't ever stop!
