    I am so fond of this book, but maybe for more nostalgic reasons than substance. Still, it should be a great meeting!

      I have that same feeling about The Wind in the Willows. I remember it being the BEST thing ever, and then I read it with Steph a few years back and thought, hmmmm. I think there is a bit of substance to Watership Down though. And it should definitely be a good meeting.
