Hi. I'm Dave, but you can call me anything, really. Big fan of the Guardians of Ga'Hoole.
I'm actually not too sure what to type here, but I just thought I'd say hi to you all because I just joined today, and please excuse me if I do something a little wrong around here. I have to get oriented with how forums work. (first time on one actually)
I hope to have a great time with everyone. :3

Hello and welcome! I am a new member as well, and just dropped in to say 'hi'. Also, how many times have you read Guardians of Ga'Hoole, and, all 18 books? (if you don't mind me asking, I'm looking for someone who has re-read the series at least more than once, just so I don't seem crazy reading it 9 times so far..) and, the usual questions:
Favorite character?
Favorite Owl species?
Favorite book?
But also, some other, more in depth ones, such as:
Have you noticed in "To Be a King" on page 57, "'Mum, did Auntie Siv die?' Rolf asked. Svenka's cubs, Rolf and Anka, were now almost half as big as their mother. Siv nodded and both cubs began crying." That "Siv" is a typo?
Any opinions on how Nyra suddenly becomes something completely different all of a sudden after the reading of the legends?
I dunno, some questions I have always wanted to ask people. Thank you! and Welcome!

Thank you for the warm welcome.
I don't think that you're crazy for having read them so many times, I would have if I had the time. I read them once through when I was a young boy, and now I've rediscovered them in my closet. So I dusted them off, and now I'm starting again. I'm currently on book eleven, in about a month. I'd read faster if I could, but I get busy a lot.
My favorite character is probably Digger. I just think he so interesting, and a good owl. I like ll of them, but Digger has a higher place than the rest.
My favorite owl species? That's definitely the Great Horned owl, they are just rad, and I especially love their ear tufts. .3.
Favorite book (so far on the second time reading through) is book number two. It showed how close the band is.
I don't believe that Siv is a typo, she is a character in there, right?
And I haven't gotten that far to finish the Legends, but in like, book eight, they said something about Nyra being part hagsfiend, if memory serves. That might explain it, I'm not sure because I haven't quite gotten that far, but I will as soon as my schedule allows . Sorry.

Again, thank you so much for the warm welcome! :)

Whoops. I just reread the one question you had. I read it wrong originally.
Yes, I do believe that may be a typo, because Siv can't nod her head when she's dead.

Woohoo! Welcome to the forums! It's been quiet lately, probably because of school stuff, but hopefully things start livening up as we approach holiday season.

Klaw I bought a new package of cookies two days ago. What happened to that one?
