Thankful Thursday #4

I know i haven't done a Thankful Thursday post in a couple of weeks, but better late than never lol

This week I am thankful for all 38 books in Sir Terry Pratchetts discworld series!
I started reading the books when I was pretty young, like 12 or 13 when my Dad passed me one of his. I, of course, was to young to get the wit and sarcasm and the parodies of our world, but I still enjoyed the stories and worked through his collection... Then I kinda forgot about them for a while.
It was a few years later when I was starting to build up my own book collection that I began to buy my own copies and read the ones I'd missed then reread the ones I hadn't, I was able to enjoy them in a new way now that I got the more 'adult' jokes.
Ever since I've bought every book on it's release day and read it straight away, I've read the books from the younger readers series to and even reread some of the ones I've already read twice and I expect I'll read them many times more. A few christmases ago my husband even bought me a leather bound set of some of the series that aren't for reading lol and I also I have the DVDs of the sky 1 adaptions of 'The colour of magic,' 'Hogfather,' and 'Going postal.' I've got my fingers crossed that they'll adapt my favourite one 'Moving pictures' next!
So I will always be thankful to Sir Terry Pratchett and The Discworld he has created, a world I love getting lost in!

If you've read the series, which is your favourite?
And which books are you Thankful for? If your a fellow blogger, take the picture and write your own post, I'd love to see it!

  1. That series was recommended to me a long time ago. I've never been able to find the first book at any of the stores here. It sounded really interesting when it was described to me. I'll have to make a little bit more of an effort to obtain it.


Go on, comment and tell me what you think of this post... I dare you!
