End of week 1 - Discussion

We hope you enjoyed the first week!
I know I did.
Like we stated previously, the page numbers given may vary according to print edition. 

We have put together a list of questions from the following reading:
Pages 1-137
Prologue - The Mayor's Library

The questions are numbered so you can answer by number in the comments.
Please be clear about which question you are answering . Also, with our comment setup, other participants can reply directly to your comment, as well as subscribe to all comments given so everyone can keep up with the discussion! 
Don't feel like you have to answer every question, and if you would like to present a question that is not on the list, feel free to do so.
