Working My Way Through Discworld

I don't remember when I became a fan of Terry Pratchett, but I have so many of his books in my house that it is really ridiculous, especially as I'm usually not a huge fan of fantasy or science fiction books. (Though I love Doctor Who to pieces)

I was trying sort out the books from the series that I had, and that was a chore

I think I have about half of them, though not totally in order. It is a wonderful thing that these books don't have to be read in order! Right now I'm off to hunt down Going Postal because I'm watching the Sky TV movie from the UK that was out earlier this year. I thought I had that book but sadly I didn't.

I still haven't tried the series, but I loved Going Postal the movie & I'm planning to try the series, too :) Happy reading!
