@emtobiasz Look, who found 🇬🇧 “Hogfather” in her library. 😃
It went right on the wish list I‘m keeping there since I‘m busy reading “On the Come Up”.
What do you think, is it Christmas🎄-themed enough to put it away ‘til the middle of December❓🤔
Every time I finish one of these Discworld Death books, I think I‘ve found a new favorite. This one has Susan, my new favorite character, Hogwatch (a great Christmas parody), lots of meta commentary on belief and stories, the magic computer Hex, not too much of the wizards, and plenty of Death. I‘ll definitely be rereading this one seasonally. 🎅🏼 💀 🎄
Revisiting Discworld, and there is a hit out on the Hogfather. He appears to be missing, so Death is assuming the role of the Hogfather both capably and entertainingly. HO HO HO. Alfred was great - especially when poking fun at the story of The Little Match Girl
Mister Teatime is dang creepy.

"it's supposed to be jolly, with mistletoe and holly... and other things ending in olly."
Watching Hogfather (for the gazillionth time) and rereading the book as part of my #12ReadsOfChristmas. I don't care how many times I watch it, this is a great adaption and a must watch every Christmas (I mean Hogswatch)
My #BookReport - I didn‘t finish any books last week 🤷🏻♀️ with life and traveling for work, I barely had time for reading.
#WeeklyForecast - I currently have 4 books in progress.
My #LMPBC book got lost in the mail 😔 so I offered to read another book and send it along. So I put my other books aside to start the Animals of Lockwood Manor.
And when I need a break from writing, I pick up Hogfather.
... and started reading. However, unless I am doing this wrong, the Hoopla version doesn‘t include the footnotes, just the asterisk! The footnotes are some of the funniest bits! 😭😭
So the end of this story is I will be looking into other options. 😜
To make a short story long, @Laura317 reviewed Hogfather last night. As I have loved Pratchett‘s Discworld so far (especially Death), I thought I‘ll get this in my #wintergames TBR! I tried to reserve it from the library - and our library system does NOT have a physical copy of this book?! Though I find that incredibly surprising and sad, they do have 2 ebook versions. One has a few holds & the other is the Hoopla version, so I checked it out ...
A favorite re-read has become a new tradition. Death as the HogFather is hilarious. #WinterGamed #HolidayRead #TraditionRead #BooktoMovie HolidayLaughs @FantasyChick @Clwojick @Clwojick #JingleBallers
Okay litsy friends. I have a girl in my family who's about to turn twelve. She reads at a college level loves fantasy and doesn't need to be reading any "adult" content. Her birthday is coming up and she is an avid reader. She loves Harry Potter. I'm looking for book suggestions on what to get her? My thoughts are something Terry Pratchett.... Yours?
It's been good to return to Terry Pratchett's Discworld. I'm reading/rereading the whole series as part of a #habitica challenge, and Hogfather was new to me, but a delightful addition to the Death series. Gotta love the satire and parody mixed with just plain funny and highly skilled world- and character-building.
Then the Dean repeated the mantra that has had such a marked effect on the progress of knowledge through the ages.
"Why don't we just mix up absolutely everything and see what happens?" he said.
And Ridcully responded with the traditional response.
"It's got to be worth a try," he said.
Just got back from vacation where I had the opportunity to briefly visit the wonderful Shakespeare and Co book store. While there I picked up this edition of The Hogfather, which I absolutely loved. Death was as always fun to read, and I loved the new character of his granddaughter. This book made the plane flight home “fly” by.
The quote, image, and book are all separate, but they're linked by the very best skeleton, the one who wants you to know that justice is a thing we make, not a thing that is. (And this image alone is leagues better than the doofy, if well meaning, Justice)
Fun! I‘m never disappointed with Discworld. I‘m glad I finally got to Hogfather, I liked it a lot!
Tonight‘s plans: relaxing with Sir Terry, Death, Susan, And Ridcully And the gang. We‘ve got a few new characters in the “oh god” of hangovers, the eater of socks, and towel wasps?! Lol. And my #covertocover mug 💚.
Today was really rainy, so no #LitsyWalkersBingo for me. I‘ll make up for it tomorrow. 🌧
It‘s time to return to Discworld, with my Death bookmark and Ook socks 🧦 🍌📚
I‘m FINALLY getting to Hogfather! I‘ve been excited to get to this one since I started my Discworld adventure last January!
(It‘s hard to see in this pic, but Death is snuggling two little kittens 🐱 🖤)
