Okay, sure, I still haven't put up a review for Wyrd Sisters. And sure, I'm still only halfway through Pyramids. But I'm actually putting up an announcement post at the start of the month for once, and you know what? I'm pretty dang proud of that. Baby steps, folks. Bb:D And this month we're tackling … Continue reading Discworld Readathon Month 8 – Guards! Guards!
Happy Holidays, everyone! I'm back from my unannounced hiatus! Incidentally, I'm a broken record. November and December are generally not great months for me (one of the million things they don't tell you as a kid is how the holidays can go from the Most Wonderful Time of the Year to Time of Dread as … Continue reading Update (I’m Back!) and Discworld Month 6 (Better Late than Never…?)
Hey all! So some not-great things came up and my blogging/reading has suffered as a result (which is why it's taking me forever to get to comments). More about that in my wrap-up, but in the meantime, let's get to Discworld! We're now 5 months into the Discworld Readathon that Nicole and I started up and … Continue reading Discworld Readathon Month 5 – Sourcery

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. … Continue reading Discworld Readathon Month 4 – Mort

Because I have ZERO concept of time and think "fashionably late" means arriving when the rest of the guests are just leaving (tip: if you ever invite me to a party, lie and say that it starts two hours before the actual start time), I'm writing this announcement post a week late. *Long sigh* … Continue reading Discworld Readathon Month 3 – Equal Rites (Witches 1)
Hey, guys! First of all, just a quick update on why I haven't been posting lately: the past several weeks have been rather grim for me mental-health wise and I've pretty much dropped every ball I've been holding. So I'm both behind on writing reviews and have a backlog of reviews to post (which is … Continue reading Discworld Readathon: Month 2 | Another Mini Update
Title: The Colour of Magic Author: Terry Pratchett Publisher: Colin Smythe Release Date: November 24, 1983 Genre(s): Fantasy, Humour Page Count: 288 (paperback) Goodreads The Colour of Magic marks the start of our Discworld Readathon! There are two things I learned from reading this book: 1) I can see why … Continue reading Review: The Colour of Magic (Discworld 1) – The Readathon Commences!
Last Wednesday in my "Books On My TBR I'm Most Intimidated By" post, I expressed my reluctance at reading through Terry Pratchett's Discworld series--because 41 books is rather daunting, no matter how short or light they are--and the lovely Nicole from The Bookworm Drinketh suggested that we set up a readathon and gather other bloggers … Continue reading Join Our Discworld Read-a-thon!
