Hi Matthereaper

A Blue Oyster Cult fan by any chance?

My favourite book is Pyramids.

Or Jingo.

Or Guards Guards.

Hi Matt,

I don't know if I could pick just one. My favourite is usually the one I'm reading at he moment. Which right now would be Night Watch. But Hogfather is also very good.

Welcome Matt (chuckles :lol: )

For a long time my favourite was Small Gods - now I'm not so sure. It tends to vary, but goes back to SG. :wink:

*Nods at Tony* - Small Gods is an amazing book but I also love Nightwatch and Lords and Ladies about the same

Hi matthereaper at the moment I'm enjoying the Thief of Time on Audio too difficult to pick just one.

That's a terrible joke Tony. Don't go looking for the door Matt.

lords and ladies, Thud, going postal, jingo, guards guards, feet of clay, making money, hat full of sky, wee free men, wintersmith. these are the favourites that come to my mind right now, couldn't choose from them, with great pain i could turn them to "thud, going postal, guards guards" but i prefer not to :(

Hogfather has almost zero mention of The Watch, other than the part where Nobby and Colon are sent to remove the 'fake imposter' hogfather from the department store. It's really not the main theme.

EDIT: Cancel that. I've just realised what you actually meant. Sorry.

I thought in Hogfather it was Nobby and Washpot :?

My favourite is;

PYRAMIDS :shock: :shock: :shock:

(Roll on January, Pyramids is the discussion book :twisted: )
