A set of 25 bookmarks featuring 24 of the books from the first 25 Discworld novels and on number 1 a portrait of Sir Terry. :D :D

Oddly the missing book is Guards! Guards! :shock:

Thank you Hogfather, bookmarks are always useful :D

A collectable you didn't know about. Wow . clever hogfather.

MANY THANKS HOGFATHER FOR MY LOVELY PREZZIES!

Not only did I get a much needed bookmark, Even better--it's a bookmark with Terry's autograph on it. And I had not seen any of the coins from the mint--so my sack of coins was a real treasure! :text-thankyoublue: :happy-sunshine:

Ooooh. Ooooh.

I got a not-Christmas, not-Hogswatch, not-birthday present in the post today.

Thanks Janet. Scrummy!

Those Hogfather presents all look and sound amazing, I'm sorry I didn't plan ahead in time to partake and I didn't get to spend long there this year, but I did write about some of Hogswatch: http://pop-verse.com/2013/12/11/discworld-christmas-a-merry-hogswatch-to-you-all/
