Susan discussed literature?

Ever since Estella’s Revenge came to an end I’m been vaguely thinking that maybe a book forum/discussion site might be a nice idea. So, with some encouragement from Anne I have decided to give it a go. At the moment I’m keeping it on the blog’s url until I can figure out if it needs a url/space of its own.
