The Faerie Queen is the book Thursday finishes reading to granny Next whihc allows her to die. But I'm sure in one of the other books when granny Next asks Thursday for suggestions about some boring books to read Thursday suggests the Faerie Queen and granny Next says she has already read it.
Am I right or is my memoery playing tricks on me? Will have to go home and hunt out this passage, only problem is I can't remember which book it's in, ah well not a hardship to re-read them all ;-)

An important point is being missed here!
Faerie Queen did not start out life boring. Did Edmund Spenser really get so bored with it himself that he gave up half way through? (Only six of twelve books now to be found.)
Some serious stuff has happened to this book. The Queen herself has disappeared entirely, and Arthur is still wandering around lost with no real idea what he's doing here. He just trots around knocking strangers off their horses in the hope of picking up the thread of his plot.
More importantly, Britomart disappeared and I am now following up a sighting of her in a railway station in the middle of Auckland. Try a search on her name.

Ah. but she didn't know she had already read it by then, espically as she didn't even know who Granny Next was. Linear or not its all very confusing, but in a good way!
Anyway, I reckon Queenie jumped ship herself and thus taking with her the plot and teh remaining books and is now living the life of a beach bum. And have you heard that Aurhter is bing targeted by a rogue mob of RSPCA lit.tech goons who want him done for abuse of horses.
