The Nac Mac Feegle are quite mischievous and always up to #tricks of some kind, like stealing sheep! 🤣🐑 The wee free men of the Discworld series are some of my favorite literary characters! They are hilarious, but also so loyal and brave! Ach, crivens! 😁💕📚

Today a friend & I paid a visit to the newest #usedbookstore in our city. I brought home a terrific #bookhaul! I hadn‘t intended to spend so much but there was no way I was leaving without all these Terry Pratchett books! I also couldn‘t pass up Tuesdays with Morrie when I found it on the $1.00 shelf. I was going to try getting Minerva to pose with my new books but the claws came out after the first book so I gave up 🤕 #CatsofLitsy #CatwithBook

wanderinglynn What an awesome haul! 🙌🏻 And what a beautiful kitty! ❤️🐱 2mo

Book 77 of the year finished Sept 19, audio

Books go quick when you spend all day painting a bedroom.

Second time with this one. Still very enjoyable.

I read this between May 3rd and 5th. I gave it 5 ⭐️ on Good Reads. The Discworld series has always scared me due The sheer size of the series but this was recommended to me and I loved it. I will be reading the rest of the Tiffany Aching Sequence sooner than later.

Traci1 The Wee Free Men is one of my favorite books. ❤ 7mo

I have been meaning to read a discworld book for a long time and had this on my kindle so I started it while awaiting car repairs. I loved the Nac Mac Freegle, Tiffani and Granny Aching and the adventure. I will continue my reading - I have such a wonderfully long list of these to dive into! Terry Pratchett was a true creative genius💖

Even in a dream, even at a posh ball, the Nac Mac Feegle knew how to behave. You charged in madly, and you screamed... politely.

"Lovely weather for the time o' year, is it not, ye wee scunner!"

"Hey, jimmy, ha' ye no got a pommes frites for an ol'pal?"

"The band is playin' divinely, I dinna think!"

"Make my caviar deep-fried, wilya?”

This is a great fun read. Brilliant dry humour as there always is with Terry Pratchett. I found it a bit hard to follow the jumping-between-worlds shenanigans but the characters are really engaging.

I loved the titular characters far more than the protagonist. How can anyone not love these tiny, drunk, violent, blue dudes who steal sheep and beat up bad guys??

The gift edition HB covers for the Tiffany Aching portion of the Discworld series are some of the nicest and most beautiful series covers I‘ve seen in such a long time. I only own the one, because I already own all the other books in PB versions but I wish I had them all because they‘re just gorgeous.
