Chronological Readthrough?

Postby faceometer » Tue Jan 31, 2012 12:39 pm

Hello everyone!
I don't know if this interests any of you, but I've just begun reading the whole lot through from the start, and I'm blogging as I go. Lots of reasons for this stupid project, but basically it's to catch up with the ones I never got round to!
If anyone wants to join in either the reading or the discussion then the blog is over at https://chronodiscworld.wordpress.com/
All best!
Will

But a rather nice task.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

I've been doing a chronological readthrough recently too on the Discworld books. Just started to read reaper man, such a great series of books!

I did that last year. It was interesting to see how style and characters developed over the years. Doing the same with Dickens this year - no, it's not harder going. Dickens is wonderful :dance:
