I may have asked this before, but my memory is carp....

.... what is the title of the book that's set in Discworld's version of Egypt?

Pyramids. :wink: And yes you did. :lol:

I was surprised to discover on another site that a lot of people completely missed the fact that the country was called Djelibeybi (Jelly Baby). :lol:

That sounds a bit fishy to me.

:roll:

That is why this site is better, because people here make an effort. The discussion of "Maurice" on "another site" was pretty lame. Try comparing the two.

I laugh every time I read that "jelly baby". That's a lot like me missing...and I'm not kidding you...wait for it......seriously wait....Cassanunda. I JUST got that last week on about the 10th or 11th reading of CJ. You know there's SO much that you can't see the forest for the trees sometimes.

I chuckle every time I think of Commander Vimes and the Prince from Klatch about the Honorary Degree of "Sweet Fanny Adams". What book was that from again?

Jingo and Pyramids are some of my favorites. Pyramids especially.

Several of my favourite emotional scenes have been mentioned already, but one that hasn't is the scene in Lords and Ladies, when Granny Weatherwax is allowed to see the life she didn't have when she chose to cross the threshold of the stone circle, rather than let a certain energetic young soon-to-be-wizard "catch" her.
