jmtrivera My goal is to catch up with the club some time this year! 2w
julesG @jmtrivera I can highly recommend the Audiobooks. I tend to listen to them while cooking. 2w
Iblu I have grown fond of the videos of an American YouTuber reading the whole Discworld series. I found him entertaining with his asides and emotional readings. I understand he got commissioned for producing the video of each part of any book, but they are now freely available on his YouTube channel. What about royalties to the author though? Am I right in feeling guilty about this way of listening to audiobooks? 2w
julesG @Iblu I understand that you are worried about this. I just think if there were any problems with copyright and royalties, they would have taken it off YouTube by now. I, unfortunately, can't listen to this nice fellow. He's doing a great job, but I just love the British version read by Nigel Planer (sp?). 2w

The Guard is growing on me. They will never crawl into that special place in my heart held by the Witches, but they might get the second row seats. 😉

Deifio @julesG don't know if you saw this but @ljuliel asked if everyone could put up their readalongs under one hashtag to better find them. I think it was #readalong2020 2mo
ljuliel Thanks @Deifio 😊. . I went ahead and added it to the list, but didn‘t add all the hashtags that are listed with this. I put the beginning ones and tagged both leaders in here. If anyone doesn‘t want theirs on that list, I‘ll gladly delete them. I think maybe they‘ll all get more participation if they‘re advertised in one spot . I‘ve seen lots of posts asking what readalongs are currently going on. 2mo
julesG @ljuliel Just tag it under #OokBOokClub that should do @Deifio Thanks! 2mo
ljuliel Got it Jules. Thanks 😊 2mo
Deifio Glad to help ☺️ 2mo

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I may be the only one who read this one this month, I know his non- Discworld novels are not as popular. But nevertheless, I still enjoyed it for the cleverly crafted silly YA (maybe even middle grade) story it was at its core....with some great wordplay and social commentary woven throughout for those old enough to catch and enjoy. 😉 2mo

gossamerchild I'm still working my way through it. Tbh these aren't my favorites, so I'm finding it difficult to stay on track 🙄 2mo
Iblu I agree we are spoiled with the Discworld universe of characters, yet this series has its moments. I‘m always struck by the references to J personal life thrown here and there and by the way they are described. Probably the YA could relate to that....would love to get my daughter to read the Johnny series at some point to see her reaction 1mo
Gezemice @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I have read it, too! Albeit a bit late... reading slump here. I liked it a lot better than the first Johnny book. It seemed more Pratchett overall - more humor, more fantasy with the dead, and I enjoyed the silly dialogues of the kids. No Discworld for sure, but fun. 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Iblu Yes... it‘s Pratchett but for a YA audience. And I still enjoy it, it‘s just a bit simpler, but still great. 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Gezemice So glad you got around to it, late or not it was still enjoyable. Hope things are starting to calm down for you and your New Year brings lots of great reading. 1mo
julesG @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Iblu @Gezemice I'll probably read the trilogy with my kids, in German though. It'll make a good introduction to Pratchett. 1mo

RachelO Eek! Jules! I think I need to be taken off this list - sorry! It‘s been so good to try out some of the other series, but I‘m not getting through 1-a-month, so I‘m ending up reading in an utterly random order (not helped by Overdrive due dates 🤯)- think I‘ll attempt more Pratchett at a slower pace. If you see me commenting on 2-year-old posts, don‘t be surprised!! 3mo

julesG @RachelO No problem! Wish I could lend you my ebooks or audiobooks. 3mo
RachelO @julesG It‘s the one thing with e/audiobooks, isn‘t it? Was thinking the other day I‘d really like to post my kindle to someone... It‘s been a great way to expand my Pratchett reading though- will def read more! 3mo
Iblu Hey y‘all!!! I am sooo liking this book! Finishing it by tomorrow I think... love the parts with Granny remembering about her youth and the complexity of her feeling her many lives across the different universes. And Nanny with her dwarf courting her and adoring her ways... and so many funny moments... this is one of my favorite Discworld books!!!! 2mo
julesG @Iblu One of my favourite Discworld novels 2mo

Lucy_Anywhere So I probably read this as a young teenager and completely missed a lot of the adult references 😂 3mo

julesG @Lucy_Anywhere I felt the same. It's so good to reread the Discworld novels. BTW, I nearly spit my coffee across the table at Nanny Ogg checking under her bed for men, because she might be lucky. 😂😂😂 3mo
DrexEdit This is definitely one of my top five #Discworld stories. I enjoyed reading this very much. I thought the witches gained layers of character here and Sir Pratchett did a fantastic job with these characters! 😊 👍 3mo
TheSpineView @DrexEdit I agree with you. There was a lot more character development which I enjoyed. 3mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @julesG That was hilarious! 3mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @DrexEdit I love the witches! I first encountered them with Tiffany Aching, so it‘s so great to read and watch them develop into these great characters as those layers get so wonderful. 3mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I really enjoyed this one, and loved Esme‘s development. And so much fun too. 3mo
