|09:57 pm - I am totally gloating at those countries who have to wait even longer|
Guess who has the new Discworld book right now?
Why yes, that would be me.
Now if you'll excuse me for a bit, I may be absent for a while. I have some vitally important reading I need to do.
Also, I need some better Discworld icons. Alas.
Current Mood: excited
I read it last week. [/smug]. So, you know, if you want to discuss it...
LOL, I was up until 4am last night finishing it off, because I couldn't bare to have a new Pratchett book sitting around unfinished.
Oho, we can sit in the corner and be smug together!
Lucky you. I've hit my mostly-annual Stake Out The Public Library's Online Catalogue So I Can Grab It First phase.
Pratchett is one of those writers for whom I will always try and buy his new books ASAP.
Tragically, I am flat broke and dependent on library funding to buy it so I don't have to.

Gah. I have been avoiding bookshops in case it was out already on the basis that I'm already far too good at prograstinating.
...I probably shouldn't tell you which stores do and which don't have it yet, should I?

No. Shhh. I need to write at least one more essay before I can read it.
I shall endeavor to keep my lips zipped.

Lucky dog! I won't get it until the end of the month.
Seriously? I thought it was out in a week or so for most people.

I have a standing agreement with someone - she gets it for my birthday. That way I know I get it and she doesn't have to figure out what to get me every year... but it means that I don't get it until later
unless I go get myself the audio too.

I don't know if that is a good idea or a bad one.

It has points in both directions.
