I know Rincewind was in it, and remember thinking "this is one confusing book", but ,I liked the way the author turned a phrase and in my book addict way, I bought The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic, and well, I have never bothered to remove the I.V. :twisted:

Thief of Time is the one with the clockmaker - but Rincewind? :? I don't think so.

Ahh, well, I thought Rincewind had a short bit about sliding down a mountain and meeting a Yeti, but, am always happy to be corrected.
That was Lu Tze. :wink:

I'm not. Probably start a war over it.

First book, The Truth in '01.
I had Canadian friends visit; the kind of people who bring their own books with them.

I had never heard of Pratchett. They rectified this immediately by buying me a book and reading me whole passages until I laughed so hard I couldn't breathe and they laughed so hard, no one understood what anyone else was saying.

Tried introducing my daughter (then 8 yrs) to the Bromiealad (wow, I spelled that wrong..) trilogy, but she'd have no part of it. Child refused to read 'age appropriate' books.

Following Christmas, I gave her the Hogfather and made her read it.
Then she stole all my Pratchetts until we gave 2 shelves over to him in the den.

She did a book report on which-Discworld-I-forget in 6th grade parochial school and they had a fit. She then did her remaining reports on Small Gods and Good Omens. Then the principal really had fits.

She's on Reaper Man now and I'm on Making Money.
