Just realised I've under-paid the postage on the one to Del.

:oops:

I suppose it will either come back here, or Del's gonna have to take out a second mortgage!!

:oops: :oops:


I KNEW there would be a thread here somewhere!.... Disc-world books? New Books? So many things cross over! Havent been out of the Broken Drum in ages *hic*

THANK YOU BOUNCY !!!!!!! Got my copy last week. It was a teaser alright... I had such bad migraines I couldnt focus to read so it had to wait.

I HATE you! Arghhhhhhhh! Maybe I should send you a tiny tiny tiny bit of choccy and tell you I will send the rest in ohhhhh a few months! :twisted:

Its not discworld.... and as much as I try I keep expecting Granny to appear...or DEATH. But its Dodger. And I was enjoying it til it ended :( Bugger.

It was so lovely of you to think of me Bouncy. :angelic-little:

And I got NO notice nor nuffin from the Post Office (and strangely they have sent me a letter before when 25c was owing on something.) Perhaps it wasnt noticed in the UK so noone of course would check every piece of mail here. SCORE! And I would have paid $2 gladly to get a sneek peek at Dodger.
Just keep swimming... just keep swimming.. just keep swimming....

I have just read the Dodger sampler. Brilliant. But why in 19th century London do we read about "pocketbook" instead of wallet?

According to this online dictionary entry, it's an old word for wallet. :)

The Danish word for a mans wallet is still "lommebog" which translates directly to pocket book.
