Aah. I might have a go again, I got as far as the first two I think.

They happen to be among my favorites, but his later ones are a bit different from the Hollow chocolate Bunnies onwards. :mrgreen:

If Toyminator is the one I'm thinking of, I was a little unsettled by some of the content.

I won't spoil it for Sjoerd, but I'd be interested to know after he's read it, if he picked up on it too.

Currently reading John Dies at the End. I'm hoping to read Rivers of London not long after, as I just got it from the library.

Yeah, now I'm not so sure it wasn't the other book that Dug just mentioned. :roll:

Just finished re-reading the "Instrumentalities of the Night" books by Glen Cook. Finally got the chance to read the three books back to back to back. Today is library day for me and my daughter so who knows what I will find next.

Just finished reading John Dies At The End and the second volume of the manga of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. The former was fine enough, but a bit too confusing at times to follow. The latter was entertaining and weird. I'll probably be reading Rivers of London before long.

This past month I had two weeks off from work, so I went to four Half Price Books stores and purchased 23 of the Discworld novels. So far I have read The Light Fantastic, Sourcery, Eric, Interesting Times, Equal Rites, Wyrd Sisters, Witches Abroad, Lords and Ladies, and I am finishing the last chapter in Carpe Jugulum. Which explains why I have joined this Message Board. It is a little hard to explain to your mates at work that you spent your vacation on Discworld.
