Don't judge me! If the public can't accept the love between a woman and a book then that's their problem, not mine!

Liking the author character,I laughed so hard when it said one of her books was called "The wee wee men",thats pretty close to the name of a book in our world is it not?

Here I have been waiting for my pre-ordered copy of Snuff.. and it seems I didn't get round to ordering it.

I was convinced, ya know.

I have a Waterstone's gift card to use.. but they only seem to have the gold cover version. I think I prefer the other one though.. :roll:

Yep

ASDA is £9.99
WHSmiths is £9.50
Waterstones is doing the exclusive version
and Tescos is the cheapest so I got the normal edition from Tesco for £5, the gold edition from Waterstones, I have ordered the slipcase edition and reading the kindle version :)

Just picked up my copy from the post office. This is the first book published since I actively started reading Terry Pratchett's stuff and the first hardback of his work that I've bought so yay!

Still got 60 pages of Wyrd Sisters to read first, but I'm really enjoying it, So I suppose don't mind that much! Very much look forward to giving Snuff a read though. :)
