What I finished reading this week:

Night Watch. I really enjoyed meeting the younger versions of Sam and Vetinari. And very briefly Sybil - Sybil is such an underused character.

What I'm reading now

The Wee Free Men, which was the first Pratchett book I ever read back in 2009 or 2010. It's actually even better than I remember. Tiffany is SO WONDERFUL. There are so many good lines:

"Eight inches. Why didn't they just say?"

"Patronizing is a big word. Zoology is really quite short."

"I'm not familiar. I'm just slightly presumptuous."

"If you trust in yourself, and believe in your dreams, and follow your star, you'll still get beaten by people who spent their time working hard and learning things and weren't so lazy."

What I'm reading next:

Thick as Thieves since it just came in at the library.
