Name That Book

Postby Lady Vetinari » Fri Oct 02, 2009 10:16 pm

Got a Discworld book you know some of the plot which characters appear in the novel but for the life of you, you can't remember what the blasted thing is called.I've got one:

Characters: Reg Shoe before he becomes a cop. One Man Bucket. A not quite Werewolf and a very hairy human girl. Wizards appear in it.

Think the University is in trouble ...

PLEASE HELP!

I'm going to need a swat team, ready to mobilize, street maps covering the whole of florida, a pot of coffee, 12 jammy dodgers and A FEZ.

I have got that one but I am re-reading Theif of Time at the moment to take part in the discussion ... missed the others and don't have time to read through hundreds of pages to make sure I don't copy what other people have said.
I haven't got Eric is that number six?

Ask it for the book back or are they the type to deny you ever lent the book to them, where's my kin book then. Image That is one thing that seriously pisses me off.

Regrettably I don't know where he lives any more - I thought he'd returned it (he did give some others back) and we were in the throes of moving so I thought it had just got packed away but when we unpacked - in fact we're unpacking 6 years later :oops: - I still haven't found it again. I think it's about time I had another splurge and got a new one, but it does grate yes :lol:
