Enjoyed some #audiocrocheting this morning with my #readingbuddy Minerva! 3 hours 38 minutes down for #20in4Readathon & counting. I‘m loving revisiting Murderbot & planning an #epicreread binge. I was able to borrow the 1st audiobook on Libby but the rest have a waitlist. Fortunately there‘s Hoopla so I have the next 3 audiobooks borrowed & ready to go!

Andrew65 Going well 👏👏👏 2y

Equal Rites | Terry Pratchett
post image

The #epicreread continues! Inspired by my husband‘s first reading of #Discworld, I decided I‘ll reread the books in the same order my hubby chooses to read them. So far, he‘s read the first couple of City Watch books, the first two Witches books, and just started Mort, the first Death book. It‘s been years since I first read Equal Rites so I‘m really looking forward to this rereading! Minerva‘s keeping me company 😻 #CatsofLitsy

Leftcoastzen Beautiful Minerva !😻 3y
aprilpohren I have never heard of these. Do they need to be read in a certain order? 3y
Catsandbooks Cute kitty! 💕 3y

twohectobooks This is such a great idea! I‘m also doing a (very slow) reread in publication order and will be filling in the gaps of the ones I‘ve missed as I go. It‘s so fun to share Discworld, though. 3y
TK-421 @aprilpohren usually refer people to this helpful reading order guide (2.0) http://www.lspace.org/books/reading-order-guides/the-discworld-reading-order-gui.... It doesn‘t include some of his later novels, but it‘s a good starting point. I also found an updated reading order guide (3.0) on Wikipedia but I think it sort of complicates things.

I‘d say choose one of the "starter novels" from any of the Discworld threads (except Rincewind*) ?

TK-421 and read it. If you‘re not interested in those characters, try jumping to a different thread. Some people read in publication order, but I personally think one shouldn‘t do that the first time around. 3y
TK-421 *Terry Pratchett himself said, “I find it now rather embarrassing that people beginning the Discworld series start with The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic, which I don‘t think are some of the best books to start with. This is the author saying this, folks. Do not start at the beginning with Discworld.” 3y
TK-421 @twohectobooks It is a lot of fun! I also need to fill in some gaps. There‘s still 7 or 8 books I haven‘t read yet. Some I own but can‘t read until I find a copy of the book that takes place beforehand. Doing a reread is a great way to bide my time until I can buy or borrow the missing books 😊 3y
aprilpohren Thank you @TK-421 3y
gradcat Your cat & cat photos are so sweet—I get a big smile on my face every time you post them. Looking forward to #QuotsySept19 ... sorry to have missed so many days this month! Hope things come back to earth for me very soon! 😂 3y
TK-421 @gradcat Aww thank you! 😊 I‘m glad they make you smile 😃 I‘ve missed some days this month too because of life stuff so don‘t feel bad! I‘m a bit behind with posting Sept‘s list but should have it ready later today 🤞 3y
gradcat No pressure...just as you please. I‘ll be there whenever it comes. And, as always, thank you for doing Quotsy...I really enjoy participating in it! ♥️ 3y
TK-421 @gradcat You‘re welcome & thank you! that means a lot to me 🤗 I always enjoy seeing your posts! The #QuotsySept19 list is ready & posted 😀 3y
gradcat Yay!! 😁 3y

I finally got my hubby to start reading #Discworld! So far he‘s read the first two City Watch books, the first Witches book & he‘s about halfway through Wyrd Sisters. He‘s enjoying the books so much I decided to start rereading! I‘m not sure yet if I‘ll reread all the Watch books first, or bounce around between the different threads, or maybe reread in the same order as my husband reads them. At any rate, I‘m looking forward to an #epicreread!

KathyWheeler I have put off reading these because I have no idea what order to read them in or where to start. 3y
TK-421 @KathyWheeler I found this reading order guide helpful: http://www.lspace.org/books/reading-order-guides/the-discworld-reading-order-gui.... It doesn‘t include some of the later novels but it‘s a great introduction. I‘d recommend the "starter novels" from any one of the Discworld threads, except Rincewind (continued ?) 3y

I was taking a photo of my next read when I noticed that Minerva was sneaking up on me 😂 When she finally pounced, she tried to run off with my bookmark! It's always an adventure trying to read with a #pet around! It's Saturday, the #bestday of the week, and I'm looking forward to rereading HP book 4 while outside, snow continues to fall on this crisp #autumn evening. #NewHogwartsAdventure #SeptemberDanes #ReadingResolutions #EpicReread

Thanks to Overdrive's #HarryPotter20 promotion, I started an unscheduled but long overdue #epicreread of #HarryPotter, but quickly swapped the e-book for print. I'd forgotten just how much was changed or left out in the movies! It's like catching up with old friends, talking about the old days, and being reminded of the half-remembered episodes of youth. My #LittenKitten Minerva's keeping me company. #readingbuddy #CatsofLitsy #Caturday

The binding on this 1986 Berkley Fantasy edition of The Sword and the Stallion has come unglued! I have other editions, but this one, with the bronze cover & lovely art, is the one I want to read to complete my #epicreread of the second Corum trilogy! 😟 With a bit of care, I can still read it, but it's so awkward! I need to track down a new copy. #bookishproblems

Leftcoastzen Oh man! 4y
Jas16 This makes me so sad! Hate it when a beloved edition becomes damaged. 4y
ferskner I'm sure you can track down someone who can rebind it for you! 4y

Finally Friday! Reading & revision were my plans for tonight, but hockey distracted me 🤷‍♀️ Although I didn't get any writing/revision done yet tonight, did read a few more chapters of the tagged book. I think it was a great choice as a #bufferbook to chase away my #epicreread #bookhangover. #ItsFriday 💃#HappinessIsResistance #CampNanowrimo

Soubhiville Who‘s your team? There‘s been a lot of shouting here when the Devils play. 5y
TK-421 @Soubhiville I'm a Leafs fan, but I'm cheering on the Jets, too because 🇨🇦! (edited) 5y

Heretics of Dune | Frank Herbert
post image

#AprilTBR plans are finishing library e-loans, plus Heretics of Dune & then Chapterhouse Dune. Maybe Hunters of Dune, but I'll probably stop with the original books for now. BH & KJA weren't quite able to capture Frank Herbert's magic. After that? 🤷‍♀️I'm a mood reader but I do have a #TBR list for challenges I'm doing this year. One of those books should help cure my inevitable #epicreread #bookhangover once I finish Dune. #ReadingResolutions

Godmotherx5 I was talking to my siblings about Dune this past weekend. None of read it but we are curious. 5y
TK-421 @Godmotherx5 Dune is one of my all-time favourites. If you like epic sci-fi/fantasy, give it a try! 5y

Dune Messiah | Frank Herbert
post image

#MagicalMarch #Wrapup #ReadingResolutions #MarchStats 6 books this month vs 4 last month & I'm on track for my Goodreads goal. I didn't make progress on any of the other reading challenges I'm doing this year because I've been binging on the Dune series, one of my all-time fave series. Once I'm done with my #epicreread, I'll get back to the challenges. #BestReadofMarch is a tie between Dune Messiah & Children of Dune. #MarchinBooks

AmandaL I read the Dune series years ago and I remember devouring it. 👍 5y
Andrew65 Well done! 👏 5y
TK-421 @AmandaL Every time I've read it I've devoured it too! 5y
