Should you feel guilty for re-reading? The answer is no. But you shouldn't feel guilty for not re-reading too. Plus our fantasy casting of A Darker Shade of Magic is pretty much all Keanu.

Melanie | 65 comments I like rereading in a different format. Like audio if I originally read the book in print. Plus if enough time has gone by, I’ve discovered that I don’t actually remember the book beyond major plot,points, so it can feel new.


Iain Bertram (iain_bertram) | 1115 comments In any case Pratchett is the master of including weird English traditions in a novel.

I just intend to a show discussing precursors to the Telegraph in Europe. Semaphore towers which Pratchett turns in the Clacks. As for the ceremony of the keys....

I rarely re-read. As I get older I realize there are so many books that I want to read in my lifetime and the time to read said books gets shorter. But, when I occasionally do, listening to the audio book of something I previously read is my preferred method too.

William | 375 comments As always I'm honoured when Tom or Veronica reads out a comment. Veronica read out my post on the new Athena Club book from Theodora Goss and assumed the picture that I had taken was of 221B Baker Street in London, which is a key address in Book 1.

It was actually of 18 Prinz-Eugen Strasse in Vienna which is (view spoiler) in Book 2.

Here is a picture from my visit:


I would hate to disappoint Veronica, here's an actual picture of Mr Holmes' home that I took while in London:



(For purists, I know about the controversy about the address - but this building had such a nice young bobby outside)
