You already HAVE! Just by showing up you are now part of the "steering committee". The smartest thing to do, and sometimes the rarest, in a Group Read is to have numerous folk overseeing it. Yes one or two guys can try to run it and cheerlead like hellfire, but you can get seriously whiped out by your personal chapter(s) (especially when it's emergency subbing) I got so whiped out by reads in general that dAN and Duchess had to literally carry me across the Mordant finish line. I feel bad by not having posted here (or there) much in the meantime as mod-it takes a very long time to recover. Group Reads really are a whole different animal compared to all our other forums.

If announced in one big fell swoop I think a Runes dissection may prove to be the most fluid and easiest to manage that I've ever seen. The interest is going to be there--as we've already said this is almost perfect timing. We just have to have a committed steering body not only to guide and push but to select, as well, if nessesary. The rest could easily fall into place all by itself. I have regained my energy and have some free time over the Summer. Cool

Is it too early to volunteer for a Runes chapter? I don't think I'd be of much use to the steering committee, but I'd be happy to drop my input on occassion.

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.

The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Question - is Fist really going to do Chapter 1? The thread that he posted is more a prank than anything else.

LOL That was entirely a joke. I posted that months before the book came out, just when that excerpt was up on SRD's site.

No, sorry, I don't have a Dissection in me at the moment. Gonna have to pass on this book.

Man! I forgot to welcome dlbpharmd as the new mod here. Embarassed I specifically asked him, and conferred with Jay, to come over here the second we all decided to start the Runes read. The transition was so smooth I didn't realize he was already here. dlbpharmd has done an excellent job in the Runes discussion forum an will inject not only a passion for the Final Chronicles but fresh and levelheaded contributions to the Reads. In any case Cool Welcome!-Let Runes begin!

Thanks! I'll do my very best!

I noticed that ur-bane had indicated earlier that he wanted to do a chapter, and I've asked him if he's still interested. I haven't seen him around much lately, but hopefully he'll pop in to read his PM.

Drew's chapter is due Nov 16th.

And since ur-bane is back, I'll ask again if he'd like to dissect a chapter.
