Story reading went very well, and it was very well attended. There ended up being eleven of us, seven of whom read something. I had a very nice time, and people even ate the meringue cookies that I made, which is nice, since I don't really like them. Played a nice game of Carcassonne Hunters and Gatherers after that. It was very different playing with four players after having gotten so used to playnig with two.
