That's always very nice. Haven't seen any flower around here, yet. I know there's lots of the stuff here, so it's only a matter of time.

I went into a charity shop and there were three Pratchett hard backs all 1st editions The metallic edition of the Long Earth, Snuff and Nation all 40 pence so I bought L.Earth as it had the extra story in it which mine didn't. :D

You might come across my copy of Long Earth in a charity shop. I could not get into it.
