Carpe Jugulum - Terry Pratchett
Carpe Jugulum - Terry Pratchett

  I've only read this one once before, and that ten years ago, so I didn't remember much, and didn't remember the Mac Mac Feeble were in it. And Greebo. Plus the whole Omnian question, and the christening. A delight, but by no means a simple one. Is there another writer who makes me feel so kindly toward other people? Dickens, Austen, Vonnegut all appeal to the same part of my brain, but none of them puts me in such charity with humanity, although Christmas Carol comes a close second.

A Collegiate Casting-Out of Devilish Devices - Terry Pratchett 
A Collegiate Casting-Out of Devilish Devices - Terry Pratchett

Pratchett held a keen understanding of academia, as well as of politics, policing, law, assassination, and another myriad subjects that his background wouldn't suggest he was properly educated to address. Clearly the man Terry Pratchett was insufficiently educated to produce such brilliant witty novels. He was no doubt a front for some other writer who had an extensive advanced education in various specialties. It's the only reasonable explanation.

 

Hmmm. I wonder if I can get a grant to research the possibility?

 

Story available online.

Reading progress update: I've read 346 out of 450 pages.
This Book Is Full of Spiders: Seriously, Dude, Don't Touch It (Trade Paperback) - David Wong

Technically this book is only 406 pages; the rest is a excerpt from another book.  So I am soooo close to the end!  It's so good, but I'm so tired.  I need to nap before I can continue.  It's sad getting to the end, because there will be no more John and Dave shenanigans until the next book...which isn't out until October.  *sigh*

Not feeling it...
Goddess of Light - P.C. Cast

I've been reading this for over a month, and I just cannot find momentum. So I'm just moving on. It's not a terrible story, but it isn't holding my attention. I'm feeling forced to read this, and nothing turns me off more than forcing me to do anything.
