Hi, I've been browsing these forums for a while now and enjoying the level of informed discussion. I first read Dune when I was about 14 or 15 and have been reading and re-reading it ever since. Once I saw that the forum creator here used a picture of The Dude for his avatar, I knew I had to join.
"The beginning of knowledge is the discovery of something we do not understand." - Frank Herbert “This tutoring is dialectical. Literature makes us better noticers of life; we get to practice on life itself; which in turn makes us better readers of detail in literature; which in turn makes us better readers of life. And so on and on.” - James Wood
