Then I may actually take a Pratchett free month before Snuff comes out, unless decide to buy Unadulterated Cat, which is unlikely, I have read a bit of it, though. :)


I'm still on Johnny and the Dead (cried at work during a bit yesterday :oops:, thank goodness I was working solo pretty much as everyone busy with an audit...)

Nation arrived! 8)

You'll blub at the end of Nation. :cry:
Mind you, just because you are a man who cries doesn't make you a big girlie. :D

Being surrounded at work by 12 films all playing at the same time can be a bit de-sensitizing so it takes something special to make the ole' eyes water... :roll:

Amen to that! Although only in the cinema (where it's dark and nobody sees my manly tears).

Return of the King, Deathly Hallows 2, Wall*E, Toy Story 3... I'm just a big old softie really.

Finished Thud! earlier. I enjoyed it, but preferred Night Watch really. Moving onto Unseen Academicals next.

Finally finished Johnny and the Bomb. :) Excellent stuff, great characters and stories. I can't choose which is the best of the three books. Looking forward to watching their filmed counterparts, can see why the didn't film OYCSM though. :)

Only Nation left to go now, which I will start tomorrow, and then I will be ready for Snuff. Just in time! :):):)

Well I just finished it and enjoyed it a lot!! How does she change? Never mind, I suppose I'll find that out for myself :)

Made a start on Wyrd Sisters.
