It's a big project but I'm not that keen on it, not to detract to the effort put into it though. :|

:lol: :lol: :lol:

I am laughing my head off. Mark was reading The Light Fantastic and walked into a Terry Pun that literally brought tears to his eyes. (been there, done that, bought the singlet).

WARNING - Bad language in this video.

Mark has begun Equal Rites. He just realized the title is a pun. :D

If you look on YouTube rather than his website, he's actually posted the first three parts. :D

Mark has just run into another Discworld pun, in the 9th section of his reading of Equal Rites. The usual bad language as he reacts. :D

I do so love his reaction to the puns. Reminds me of my reaction to them while sitting on a bus reading them. :lol:

I have a question for other members of Mark's site. It seems to me there's a spoiler scrambling device built into the software, so that some members' posts read as gibberish. Is there any way of decoding this? I have joined the site and had an answer to one of my comments, but have no idea what it says. :?

Go to http://www.rot13.com, it comes up as a blank page where you just copy the text in and click the Cypher button underneath, this will un-gibberish it.

Vice versa for you to post your own spoilers.

The alternative for on the go is to find an app to download, which I've also done.

Due to being on tour soon, Mark is now binge reading and watching his next 5 or six weeks of books/shows.

Meaning he has just finished Mort! And starting Sourcery soon! :D

But the posts will still be on schedule for every other day as usual.. :cry:

He won't start Sourcery until people commission the rest of the book. He only has maybe one fourth of it commissioned.

While it may be a good thing to have a break between books, I'd hate to have the great read-through stopped, especially this early.
