Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! Things are super hectic and I’m just a tad sleep-deprived, but I’m still here to give your monthly reminder that hey, we’re doing a Discworld Readathon! The idea is that we read through one Discworld book per month–so a four-year endeavor, give or take–and post up a review on the last Monday.
This month we’ll be tackling Mort! Pretty much every Pratchett reader seems to talk about it with the kind of reverence usually reserved for Easter church services and that moment when you take your souffle out of the oven, so my expectations are super high. Stratospherically high. Like, this better blow my socks off into said stratosphere.
I’m joking. Mostly. But I’m still very excited and the book seems like the perfect October read. If you’re interested in joining (or dropping out) this month, just leave a comment below!
Oh, and speaking of high expectations, it’s come to my attention that Nicole (Bookworm Drinketh) is on the hunt for the perfect alcohol to pair with her Equal Rites (Discworld 3) review, which is the BEST reason for a delayed review ever. I’m expecting some kind of godly concoction, Nicole. 😉
Reviews for Mort are to be posted on October 29th! Happy Reading!
I like this one… but not actually one of my fave Discworlds! Shocking, right? I hope you enjoy it 🙂
Thank you! And ooh which one *is* your favourite?
My fave ones are the Moist von Lipwig trilogy – Going Postal, Making Money and Raising Steam.
I’m in! (Knock on wood.) October does seem like a good month for Mort 🙂
I love how perfectly it matched up for October! 😀
I really do need to read all these Discworld books! You’re making me want to marathon them. 😀
You should totally join us sometime!! 😀
I’ll be back again this month!
Yay! Can’t wait! 😀
And I’ll totally figure out how to use a calendar this month… 😒
I look forward to your review of this one, Kathy! ♥️
Can’t wait to read and share it, Jennifer! 😀
This is one of my favorites, so I am in.
Yay! Great to have you with us! 😀
My Pratchett fan friend is on the same opionion, that this is the best, and he even said to skip the books before. But i’m just a completionist, so i guess i can’t 😀
Haha I’m a completionist too (hence this readathon, I guess!) but I do agree that the first two books can be skipped. You can always return to them later! 😉
Heck yes I’m in! It’s one of my favourites, and definitely fits the month perfectly!
Woot! I’m excited to see how Pratchett’s Death measures up to Gaiman’s Death. 😛
I so want to join this – have you read Guards Guards yet – it’s one of the books I really want to pick up?
I haven’t, though I’ve heard great things about it (and Samuel Vimes). I’ve only read like 2 Tiffany Aching books out of the whole series before this readathon, so I’m very much a newbie. 😀
And yessss! Join us sometime!!
