Very nice collection you have there.

Ok, This is a sort of panoramic view of my really untidy book shelf

This doesn't include my Illustrated Hogfather or The Illustrated Wee free Men.

And here is my collections of unabridged audio-books (recent ones are on CD but most are still on cassette! - which makes them almost impossible to listen too in the car now)

:lol:

It would be great to see pictures of other DW collections too. Anyone have the buildings or figures? I desperately wanted Granny Weatherwax's cottage, but the postage to get it here put it out of my budget. :(

I don't even think my entire book collection could compete with just those DW books. :shock:

...maybe if I added in all my reference books, my old school jotters, any newspapers I can get my hands on, doctor/dentist appointment cards and of course take away menus shoved through my door, I could come close. :roll:

This will shock you - not only are my Pratchett books not in chronological order, but they are mixed in with other authors. :shock:

They're not even all in the same house, never mind the same room.
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

I'm very lucky in that I think I have had proofs of most books since The Fifth Elephant - quite often both the UK and US editions.

I have to admit that the picture does include books by other authors I noticed some Steven King - Douglas Adams even JK Rowling. I just don't have room to store them all correctly.

So, anyway here is my Discworld Beer collection (as you will notice that most have been drunk and the rest would probably kill you if you tried now - it's also been left to gather dust for a while to look old! :) )
