It looked like a piano sounds shortly after being dropped down a well. It tasted yellow, and felt Paisley. It smelled like a total eclipse of the moon. Of course, nearer to the tower it got really weird.

When I saw Jim Balent’s name I figured I might have something to submit here, but I didn’t expect a swivel neck.

Don’t you hate it when you want to boldly confront someone, but your boobs ignore you and run away?

Series: Discworld

There are 40 novels in the Discworld series. The library only owns a few; you will need to ILL the rest. Click here for a full list of novels in the series.

Author: Terry Pratchett

Genre: Fantasy, Humor

Contains: Violence

In 1983, Sir Terry Pratchett wrote the novel The Color of Magic to parody fantasy literature of the time. Since then, Discworld has evolved into complex and quirky fantasy world of it’s own.

Getting started in the Discworld universe is a daunting prospect: currently, the series numbers at 40 novels and Sir Terry Pratchett continues to publish more despite his 2007 diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer’s Disease.

The Discworld series is divided into sub-series based on the main characters. I’d suggest going with the novel Guards! Guards!, the first novel in The Watch sub-series (and the 8th novel set in Discworld). This sub-series will introduce you to Vimes and Vetinari, who — while absolutely delightful in their own right — also have a tendency to show up in other Discworld novels that take place in Ankh-Morpork.

Here’s a bigger version of the reading order guide

I was looking through my photos just now and noticed that I have a lot of pictures of forests, and none of them are the same colour.

I love living in the temperate zone.
