Sylvia (sylviahartstra) Do you like Terry Pratchett? I once tried one of his books - don't remember the title - and didn't like it. So I gave it a away.

I'm a fan! Both of his writing and the personality I see through the pages. Many of his novels are masterpieces. I prefer his middle-to-late works - my all-time-favourites are "The Thief of Time" (have read it again past year) and "Night Watch". I've enjoyed the City Watch series in general and liked the Witches book I read (still have a bunch to explore). I'm not fond of the Rincewind books, though, and I read only one Death book (said "The Thief of Time").

Lamilla I reread the rules and realised "Anything Goes" doesn't qualify for this challenge since I decided to read it and acquired it after the New Year. Also, I quitted "The Secret Life of Bees" - maybe later. So, two vacant spots left!
