Is there anything from the book that you would like to discuss?

Anything that I didn't ask that you want to?

Throw them out here and let's talk about them! This is your discussion area!

First I want to give a great big thank you and plate of ccc to you Karen for leading this discussion. It has been a long one hasnt it. I didnt even realize it till it had gotten mentioned.

Second.. another big thank you to Johnnylubber for all of those pics.. they were amazing and really helped one to visualize the city and its surroundings. I really liked that last one of the parade like.. took me right to that part in the book about them transporting that bear to safety.

I'd like to ask.. did anyone make any notes on all those philisophical.. deep spiritual thoughts.. sayings??? I would love to have a list to refer back to. I had made some notes.. but next time.. I think using the paper towels in my works lunch room wasnt the best idea..

I'm glad we were given the opportunity of reading this book because of Johnny.. I know it wouldnt have been one I would have picked up normally, especially with it being as big as it was and I know I will be giving it another read in the future.

That is one thing I learned! I did not make any notes! But I know, I want to read this story again and then I definitely will do that. It is so full of those philosophical sayings and thoughts, when I read it I said to myself, I must remember that, but I was fooling myself by thinking I am still 20something LOL. My memory isn't what it used to be. *sigh*

I agree with you Mary Kay. Every book that Johnny mentions is very well worth reading! I trust him blind on that! And I hope there are lots more to come.

I think you did a wonderful job Karen, with it being such a big book, I think you covered all the important things in it, thank you again for that.

I am so looking forward to what's going to be made out of this book. Especially with Johnny involved with production too. I think you will get to see some surprising things from Johnny in this one. Don't you all think so too?

You're welcome MK and the CCCNN were fab! Thanks! No, I didn't make a list of Lin's deeper spiritual thoughts. Darn. Wish I had.
