A Plethora of Pratchett

Well, August has come and gone, which means it's now time for another themed month, again one with a little alliteration. One of my most favorite authors is Terry Pratchett, so it's natural for me to devote an entire month to him, even if he didn't have a new book coming out, which he does! His books are witty, wonderful, and have a way of taking the fantasy and science fiction genre and making it funnier yet more relevant than any other author I know. While he has many characters to celebrate on his flat land of Discworld, there is one that holds a special place in my heart. That person is Tiffany Aching. While you people over in England are probably already devouring this latest book, us here in the United States have a few more weeks to wait for I Shall Wear Midnight. But this final month is well worth the wait. Any book by Terry Pratchett is worth the wait, but a new Tiffany Aching book!?! I've been waiting a long time, and let me tell you, it's worth the final few weeks. But I will of course attempt to fill your time with plenty of Pratchett, I have been hoarding reviews so that I could inundate you with book after book. So hopefully time will fly... and of course there's a giveaway. What would a themed month be without I themed prize I ask you? Well a shame is what I say. So while waiting for the new release, let's see if you've got the numbers in your favor to win you some books!

I love Terry Pratchett and Discworld.

I think my favourite character is probably the first one I got hooked on namely Rincewind but the other that I would love to see more adventures on is the wooden suitcase. It is hilarious.

+1 for above

I have to agree buddyt, Rincewind rocks, altho Death (is that the name in English?) also is great hehe...
I've read 2 books by Terry, color of magic and this other one about Death, I don't remember well as it's been many many years (really, like, 8 years)...

I'm a new follower, so 3 entries total :D
Thanks for opening it to everyone!
