Ogham (with one G) really was an ancient language. ;)


Depends on who you believe... Ogham was a medieval development, according to something I read somewhere (which I realize is only one point above What Some Bloke In The Pub said).

The bit they read to us at the Con (the end credits and the 1st chapter and a bit (so more than the Waterstone's sampler) was ace :D

Really looking forward to Thursday. I have a feeling this weekend will be almost entirely dedicated to reading Dodger! ...perhaps accompanied with a glass of red or 2. Maybe.

Welcome Oliver! :D I've got my copy preordered on Amazon, so I'm hoping it won't be too long after Thursday.

Thanks for the welcome Tony :)

I've ordered a Kindle version, so I can be sure that I'll have it ready to read on Thursday.

You might have noticed Oliver, that pip does not like ereaders we keep trying to convert him :roll:, if you look at some earlier posts, and welcome to the forum from another Kindler. :mrgreen:

There is an advantage to being home, free from work (due to dentistry) for a few days. I confess to an early morning kindle purchase despite buying the real thing tomorrow, madness I tell you. It's not too difficult to find a 'free' kindle version either but one must support one's fav' author and add to one's collection an all that.
I thoroughly enjoyed 'Dodger' despite the rather abrupt finish, must be the shortest TP book ever (something that TP acknowledges in the afterword). I'll reserve my full opinion until I've had my second read through.

Regarding the ereader/kindle phobia thing, you CAN have both, this is what I always say to the perplexed luddites :)
