  1. oops! didn't realise it was the warthemed chat until afterwards!! so sorry!! my posts - clash of kings + sookie stackhouse + room - I don't think are really war related. clash of kings - fantasy war? but sookie stackhouse is just a vampire type novel. and ROom - I haven't read yet (just got it today!)

    Would People's Train be war themed? hmmm

  2. No worries! There were a few off-topic chats going on as well, and there are always tangents!
