  1. Goodness yes 🙂
    I was reading Guards! Guards when Sir Terry Pratchett passed away last month, so I followed that up with Wyrd Sisters, then Men at Arms, then Witches Abroad. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to read the Vimes/Watch subseries or the Ramtops/witches subseries more, so I’ve been alternating them. 🙂 I threw in a couple of Louis L’Amour (classic American westerns) books that I bought at Half Price Books on my trip a week ago – they’re only 100-150 pages, so they’re a quick read; fun though. I’m currently taking a break from the Discworld madcap-ery with Beverly K. Butler’s 1962 Light a Single Candle, about a 14 year old girl who goes blind from glaucoma and how she learns to adjust and thrive. I got it from the library discards in high school, so it’s got the Ukarumpa stamps still, it makes me smile. 🙂
    All good books, but you already knew that about the first four. 😉 I won’t ask you to pick a favorite book, but do you have a favorite Discworld subseries?

    • Ah, Louis L’Amour – I always liked his Sackett books.
      I have some Ukarumpa stamped books too – including one which I bought when we visited in 2012, no-one having issued it since the last time I did, ten years before 🙂
      My favourite Discworld sub-series is probably the Watch, although my taste often changes with my mood! The only ones I’m not really keen on are the Rincewind ones – I find myself wishing the Luggage would eat him and put him out of his spineless misery.

  2. Tent Life in Siberia by George Kennan (revised edition, 1910, first published in 1870) John Bunyan: his life, times and work by John Brown (1888) Three Years in Tristan da Cunha by K. Barrow (1910)
