Oh, the Librarian 🤣🤣🤣 I think he is probably my favorite character. I think I've said that before 🤔🙄😏

I'm a little behind on the #OokBOokClub reading, but I'll catch up at some point.

Day 11: Literary character you want to have dinner with -Rincewind, but we definitely wouldn‘t be eating in Ankh-Morpork. 🤢. #OokBOokClub

julesG No curry at that small place DEATH took Mort to? 😁 1w

#ThursdaySurvey

1. 2 and 1 of them was a re-read. 2 more are in progress.

2. Continuing on with #OoKbOokcLuB, #LosersClub, and new challenges #NovelWatchingCrew and #ReadWithMrBook

3. The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes

4. A silly resolution to make, but after seeing Allison Hoffman‘s creation of Baby Yoda, I‘m YouTubing tutorials to learn crochet.

5. Hopefully chances to camp more often in the summer.

@laurenslibrary

laurenslibrary Thanks for playing and good luck w your crochet! I tried to learn once but didn't have the patience for it! 1w
AnansiGirl @laurenslibrary thank you! ☺️ I‘ve gotten the hang of single crochet stitch. The others are going to take more practice. (edited) 1w

I am listening to Radio Morpork and one of the hosts is describing one of the romances in it as a D/s relationship and he's talking about Carrot and Angua and NOT Vimes and Sybil??? I am puzzledly, tilting my head so far that it's in danger of falling off.

khooliha I wouldn't take Gaspode's word on human relationships, is the real takeaway. 1w
julesG There is absolutely no emoji that could convey what I looked like reading your blurb twice! Say whaaa?! 1w
khooliha @julesG I think he put too much stock in Gaspode saying "He's your master." Again, don't put stock in Gaspode! 1w

jmtrivera My goal is to catch up with the club some time this year! 1w
julesG @jmtrivera I can highly recommend the Audiobooks. I tend to listen to them while cooking. 1w
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? 1w
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?). 1w

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. 😉

julesG Vetenari and Carrot trying reverse psychology made me giggle. 1w
Aimeesue “Sometimes it‘s better to light a flamethrower than curse the darkness.” 😂 1w
khooliha One of my strongest memories of this book is from my first read, when I told my best friend I had cried over Cuddy's death and got mocked for it. 1w
See All 13 Comments
khooliha Anyway, I love this book! I love all of the new characters introduced and I love the new phase of life Vimes gets. 1w
Gezemice @Aimeesue This one is full of quotables. My favorite is Vimes‘ Boots theory of economic inequality. 1w
Gezemice @khooliha This was my first “real” Discworld book and I loved it so much I did not stop until I read all the Watch books. This is still my favorite. Hilarious from start to end (those letters from Carrot 😂 ), the characters are awesome, one of the best Discworld plots, and there is some serious commentary on racism, hate, sexism, prejudice... even good people like Carrot have issues with the undead. Until they get to know one. 1w
khooliha @Gezemice This would be a great starter book! It's a good showcase for character development, a promise of how (most) of the series will go. My starter was The Last Continent and I think it's -technically- a bad starter, but I love it just the same. 1w
julesG @khooliha @Gezemice I read this book for the first time. My first Pratchett was Pyramids. I agree, MaA is a good starter. I'll keep it in mind for future reference. 😉 1w
Aimeesue @Gezemice I quote Vimes' Boots Theory ALL the time! Brought my kids up to live by it, when they can. 1w
Gezemice @Aimeesue I quote it often, too, although have not brought my kids up that way lol. 1w
Gezemice @khooliha Last Continent is one you kinda have to know Discworld for already... I am glad you liked it and kept reading! 1w
Gezemice @julesG Yeah, I recommend it usually as a starter, although Guards, Guards would work as well. Personally I think Men at Arms is better because more of the characters are there and Vimes is no longer a happless drunk. 1w
khooliha @Gezemice It made middle school me laugh A Lot, and Rincewind is a type of character I have always loved. It worked out! 7d
