It's very much London slang. :)

Very Terry and Arfur!

Downloaded Raising Steam for my Kindle. Not really enjoying it.

Its quite the ending. Really looking forward to the next book in the summer.


Me too! I'm wondering if I'll be able to pick up a copy at the DWcon? For some reason, the one piece of slang that I get the biggest kick out of is "manor". People referring to where they grew up or live as their manor.

Catch-up unlike the NADWCon's there is mainly Discworld books,but there might be a dealer or so selling other books as well.

Reading the 10th Anniversary edition of American Gods, with the extra stuff in it. It's been so long since I've read it, and my memory sucks, so I'm not actually sure which parts are the extra parts. :oops: :lol: But, really enjoying it.
