He and his girlfriend are very nice. We've had several chats, and I loaned him a book, and gave him a set of DVDs that I didn't want anymore, so I think he's repaying the favour.

You lot, on the otherhand, have filthy minds.

Finished Hat Full of Sky yesterday - even better than Wee Free Men :D

Didn't feel as epic, though, but had more scope - if that makes sense?

I love the bit near the end of the book where she even says to herself, Ishall wear midnight when I'm older - I geeked out so much at that point :lol:

Tiffany books are so good, can't believe I have to read Going Postal, Science of Discworld III and Thud! before I get to Wintersmith :cry:

Are you reading "Where's my cow" before "Thud"? You should do. :D

I am trying to find it cheap enough yeah - average is around £9 on ebay - I have read it already in Waterstones sneakily (who doesn't do that?).

It should take me about 2 weeks to read Postal, so that's how long I've got.

If you've read it that's OK, don't buy it coz it's a waste of money.

Are you going to play the boardgame Thud before you read it? :lol:
