What else do you read?

Postby HobbitFeets » Wed Jul 31, 2013 11:32 am

Now before I get cast out as a heretic. I was just wondering what else people read other than Terry Pratchett? Now we're all friends here so I don't want any wirling axes or daggers coming my way like I've shouted something stupid, whilst standing in The Broken Drum ha ha
No. I don't imagine anyone west of Bree would have much interest in "adventures."
