I am so excited to finally get my hands on this from the library. I have listened to most of the series on audio, so print is a fun experience as I pronounce names and phrases as I have always heard them. Off to yoga, then home to read before work!

@Mdargusch I received the next book this week. Thanks! We are moving in a few weeks...can I email you our new address for the next shipment? I‘ve kept up with the reading but have been out of the Litsy loop due to school. Feeling a bit lost with all those who dropped out! #whodunitbymail

Mdargusch Sure! Good luck. I know it‘s really stressful to move. The people leaving our group has me really confused too. 🙃 my email is mdarguschataol.com 12mo
tpixie Hope your packing and moving is going well! I think all your kids will be closer to school so that will be nice!! Your whodunnit group has been together a long time. Sad it‘s shrinking in size. 11mo
dariazeoli Hi, Melissa! Didn‘t see a response to the latest #whodunitbymail group email. There‘s a shared spreadsheet as we redo the rotation. Do you have a book in hand? Which one? Thanks! 10mo

The Color of Magic | Terry Pratchett
post image

I am reading this with the readalong, a month behind. It‘s my second try through this book, and I have finally made it halfway. I know the series is confusing, and I am trying to care as I slog away, because I have heard fantastic things, but I am really having trouble. Maybe Discworld is not for me? #ookbookclub

readinginthedark I had trouble with this one, too, but have been told they get better. So I think I‘ll try again in the future. 2y
jmtrivera I reread this last summer and it's not as fun as I remember it. However, the next one was better, ands this one sets it up, so it has that going for it. 2y
Aims42 I would suggest starting the Discworld series either with ‘Equal Rites‘/ the witches series or with ‘Guards, Guards‘/ the Watch series. I couldn‘t get into this book either and im so glad I read those other books because now Terry Pratchett is a top 5 favorite author of mine. This helped me a lot when I started the series: https://www.geeksofdoom.com/GoD/img/2014/04/Discworld-2.21.jpg 2y
xicanti I started with this one years ago and it convinced me Pratchett wasn't my thing at all, but a couple of Discworld-loving friends have since told me it's a TERRIBLE place to begin the series. They pushed me to try MONSTROUS REGIMENT instead. 2y
Gezemice This is the worst book in the series. Try Mort or Men at Arms. But basically any other Discworld book is better. 2y

"You can load your own documents onto your Kindle, but Amazon is able to delete books it has already sold you. In 2009, Amazon automatically deleted some editions of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four from users' Kindles because of a copyright issue." (Page 70)
