My brother gave me The Colour of Magic to read saying, 'You'll like this'. He wasn't wrong. Many years later and I try to resist buying each book as it's published....and fail.
Other people's reading habits are a bit of a mystery and we can't push our taste without meeting resistance. A great many people just don't read books at all. How many have a TV in the bedroom? I don't. I read in bed and the pictures in my head are more vivid and colourful than any TV crap.....which it is mostly isn't it? Also a great many people, more than you'd think, are only literate to a basic degree even though they can busk their way through everyday life, reading a novel might be a step too far.
I operate a book exchange with a dear friend who I only see occasionally but we manage to keep each other entertained. It's currently her turn to supply the literature but when it's mine I'm going to try her with a DW book..........but which one? I'm leaning towards Wyrd Sisters.
Afterthought: I tried listening to Guards! Guards! as dramatised on Radio 7. Oh dear
Just when you think you've made ends meet.....someone moves the ends.
