Well, who knows? I may actually revive this thing. The problem is how far I will go.

This time around, I might avoid the whole one Discworld book per week thing, though...

Sounds like a good idea to me. As I said in the past; turning something enjoyable into a task can ruin it.

Why not try one more and see how it goes? :)

I might try this! I read quick, so I should be okay- I read UA in a night! BUt then again, I have to study for exams and if I set myself this I might not do that... Oh well. I'll see. :D

Great initiative, Quatermass! I'd love to do it some day, but I can't even manage reading one of the series in order (witches, death etc). I have tried, though it didn't work out. Usually I just wake up one morning thinking "I need to read Jingo" or "Maskerade next!" and follow my own orders immedeatly. (ignoring any reading plans) :)

But I think that's the case for most of us. And it's a part of the fun. :D

Okay, I'm seriously considering reviving this before long. As mentioned in a previous post, I will be starting again from where I left off, which will be Carpe Jugulum.

Hey, I'll do it on my terms, thank you very much. :P

If I do do it, I'll finish at Making Money. I have already read and reviewed the Discworld books since then.

I've actually decided, instead of doing one book a week (which will conflict with another book-reading thing I'm going to be doing before long, as I just received a book I was eagerly anticipating), I'll post reviews whenever I feel like it, but in order.
