Lightsaber




“Butters," rumbled Skaldi Hair Ball. If he really had broken fingers, it didn't look like they were bothering him much. "When are you going to get in this ring and train like a man?"

"About five minutes after I get a functional lightsaber," Butters replied easily, much to Hair Ball's amusement.”
― Jim Butcher, Ghost Story

LaurLa | 1854 comments Who has seen the new Star Wars? Love it or Hate it?


message 21: by Sheila (new)

Sheila (sheilaj) My family loved it. I missed out because I got hit with the flu.


message 22: by Natalie (new)

Natalie | 974 comments I really enjoyed it. I'm putting my final thoughts on hold until Episode IX is out so I can see how it all ends.

Oh Yuck!

Our family of four were 3 Yays and 1 Meh. That was my 21 year old. He said he didn't like how Leah (view spoiler) - he thought that would have been the perfect time to write her character out. I think he's nuts. And kind of a dumb reason to not like a movie ;-)

Abbie | 2575 comments Havent seen it yet, but want too.


message 26: by Vicky (new)

Vicky (librovert) | 2016 comments I haven't seen it yet either. Star Wars is the one series that we tend to see as a family, but my brothers are cooks and I have two jobs with complex schedules... so we haven't been able to make it happen yet.


message 27: by Louise (new)

Louise | 2300 comments Haven't seen it yet either. I'm s not behind on them

Christine | 265 comments Hi Everyone! I'm excited to be part of the group. I'm behind the 8 ball here. So any help figuring out what's going on would be appreciated. I did find a website and logged in and saw our group and I believe the list of challenges. I can fill one of the open spots now but am not sure how to do it or if they are assigned. Thanks!

A challenge has been received, and you have been fined $300 for using FaceOff for Read a book with a lion.

We can find mention of a Fu Lion (statue), but no actual lion.

Christine | 265 comments The task is: Read a book with a lion. It doesn't say actual, alive lion. Just a lion.

Foo dogs are actually lions. In China, where foo dogs originated, they are called shi, meaning “lion,” or shishi, meaning “stone lion.

Chinese guardian lions - Wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese...

Chinese guardian lions or Imperial guardian lions, often miscalled "Foo Dogs" in the West, are a common representation of the lion in imperial China.

Sorry all. I researched this before submitting to the group. I thought it should count.

M Beal | 1490 comments FYI, I that was not the book I read and posted. I have no clue how that got into the - Read a book with a mausoleum on the cover -.
The Book I read was Mausoleum by Mark Chevalier Book ID: 32496082.

My completion post is Message 93 in the books read tab dated February 24.
Is it possible to fix this?


message 40: by Christine (new)

Christine | 265 comments I can second that you posted that book. The correct one. I’ve never heard of the one that was challenged.
