Greetings Citizens!

Postby Bouncy Castle » Wed Apr 29, 2009 12:28 pm

Hello all.

Someone called palval147 posted the link to here on BBC Points of View boards, so you can blame him/her for my appearance here! :lol:

I adore Pratchett, though my first foray into the world of disc was Going Postal. I needed therapy for several months afterwards. :wink:

Then some kind person (again on POV boards) showed me the publication list and explained that I could read them all in order, or in the different character sections.

I went mad, and was buying four or five books a week!!

I'm not usually a hardback kinda girl, since I find them very heavy, but when I read the preview for Unseen Academicals, I just had to order it!!

I've also recently got into Robert Rankin books. He's as potty as Sir Terry. Thank the lord for both of them.

Thanks for the welcome, Jan.

Just been looking at the "what are you reading" thread, and then looked Tom Holt up on play.com

Oh lord. It looks like I might have to start spending again!!!

Welcome to the forum.

Make yourself comfortable and enjoy the books. I'm still waiting (not so patiently) for my next Discworld book to read.

I've just edited this post as I've just realized that my post count has gone binary!

I was wondering, what with all the swine flu around, whether there were travelling restrictions to Ankh-Morpork?

I bet Del Boy Trotter is well worried.

A rasher statement, I have never heard.

Hoy! Bounce! Look what you made me do, godsdammit! Signed up to another forum when I'm supposed to be saving the world :roll:

Anyhoo, hello everybuggy - been reading Terry since 91 - first book was Sourcery, then I went straight out and bought all else he'd published up til that point - ah, the sweet thrill of finding a new favourite author and being able to read the back catalogue...
