Hellooo. My name's Georgie :D

I'm from Sydney, Australia! I started reading Discworld late last year and made my way through... a lot. I wanted to go to Nullus Anxietas this year but couldn't make it.

How do you guys read your books? Hardcover, softcover or digital copies? I haven't decided how I might start collecting them..

Hello Georgie, welcome to the forum. Image Hardcover and unabridged audio books for on the go, but other members collect only the paperbacks.

Just ordered six paperbacks online. I only really have the wizard books and Death books to go. But I want to read the Watch ones again... and I'm having a hard time picking favourite characters ..

Welcome to the madhouse Georgie :D I have paperbacks, hardbacks, unabridged audiobooks and the limited editions and I read or listen to all of these, usually by picking up whichever comes to hand first of the title I want to enjoy again next.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

In response to your question, Georgie - I generally buy the hardbacks when they come out (I only do this for new books by Terry and Bernard Cornwell), which I carfully read. I then tend to get paperback copies so I can read them without worrying about staining/damaging them. These are generally secondhand copies either from charity shops or purchased online. :)

I think the paperbacks are winning for me, just because I love the notion of a well-loved book.

Also, studying full time means less money, and I'm definitely going to go second-hand book shopping for the ones I didn't just buy.

I'm also looking for an opinion on the comics - are they worth me trying to source them out?

Is there a version of the sock eating monster for books? I swear I have had/read loads of them and they are not there now! Maybe it was all a dream :confusion-shrug:

They must be turning up at my place as I'm always finding books that I have no memory of buying. :lol:
