Ooh, ooh! We're venturing back into bookish lands! The Seven Golden Keys came up (Google books preview) in The Magician King (Wikipedia article with broad plot summary), including the quest to gather back taxes from the outer islands (when they actually tried to gather taxes).

Anyone know of a good chapter-by-chapter recap for the books? Otherwise, re-reading the series wouldn't be the worst ;)

Argghhh, I badly want a boat that is vastly larger down below than on deck, but nice boat and not a bad sailing complication, and some of the sailing scenes in the book were a bit dull.

Prior to the season started, I posted asking if people wanted seperate book and show only threads this season. The general sense was "no" but do we still think that now that the show has started?

Personally I'm of the opinion that we should let a thousand flowers bloom, I don't see that having a book thread hurts the show-only thread.

I still think that >_>

edit: I didn't see the show-only post until going to the show page. apologies.

No idea on whether the princess is really the princess. Hrm.

Whatever weird mind controlling parasite thing is running around now in Quentin...blegh. Highly unsure if I like this twist. Currently neutral bending toward total blegh.
