But... it's also so much more interesting to be cruel and/or unusual.

I'm a relatively young Pratchett fan, i'd say, being the spry age of 24. i started reading at the age of 7, in Year 3 of Primary school. Essentially, i had read everything that had interested me in the school library. If your school was anything like mine, our reading was graded throughout, and i'd reached the top level. My teacher recommended to my mum i get some 'proper' books.

That's where my adventure started. I was bought 'Reaper Man', by my Nan, and i'm not sure why she picked it up for me, out of all the books she could have picked. i tried to read it, and it was daunting, i won't lie. on my second attempt, i was hooked. from then on, i started from the beginning of the series, and have read all of the discworld books, excluding the companions. Actually, tell i a lie, I've not yet read The Amazing Maurice. i was so into them, that at the age of 14, when i had a part time job, i invested every penny in buying the collection up. i now own all of the 'Main' books, as i call them, including the Tiffany Aching ones.

Anyway, treat me nice, i'm quite interesting, promise.

Hiya T1mown and Welcome , I started late in life trying to collect TP Paperbacks like 6 Months ago, not got many about 15 at the moment,most of them are from Second hand shops, but i read alot, As there is nothing much more to do in my job in Security :D

Careful. Sometimes meat has more teeth than you do. :twisted:

Embracing geo-political-cultural stereotypes are we then? Well, that's all right. :clap:

In any case, even if the teeth don't serve as enough of a warning that this meat is not the best for one's health, there's always that you never know where it's been, or what it was doing there.

hi - Del suggested I should post a hello here, so here i am :) To paraphrase what I put in another thread - long time lurker, only just joined to see if anyone had any info on the TP first novel award. Been a fan since Mort and met Terry in the late 80's when his readings weren't totally thronged. I asked him if he deliberately wrote stories on two different levels (appeal to humour and intellect) and I thought his answer was a bit obscure until, interestingly, undertaking my own hamfisted attempt at a novel. He just said "never ask the tightrope walker how he does it". I didn't really get it for years. I do now. :D Glad to be here
