Hear ye, hear ye — there have been two monstrous Discworld occurrences here on BookLikes! Find out all about it!

And they’re both the fault of your host — i.e., yours truly.

First of all, I totally missed the start date of our present group read — Equal Rites — which was on February 1.  I’m not sure how many of us will want to (re)read this one as it’s not a general favourite, but anyway … there we are.  The discussion thread is HERE

… which swiftly takes us to snafu no. 2, which is the decidedly bigger one:

Somehow, when creating the Discworld group last year, I totally missed the fact that you only get both a book club and a discussion group linked with it (i.e., the combination of both the club and group features) if you create the club first — which will then have a discussion group auto-attached to it.  If, as I did, you create the the group first, it will not have a club (with its handy reading schedule feature) attached to it … nor can you combine it with a club if you create one later.

I discovered all this — you guessed it — when creating a Discworld book club AFTER we had already gotten the Discworld discussion group up and running.  At first I thought oh well, let’s just forget about the club feature (also, RL seriously got in the way in the interim), but as some of the Discworld group members have since found the club and have already signed up for membership, I hereby officially give you

The BookLikes Discworld Book Club

with its very own attendant and brand new

Discworld Discussion Group.

(For purposes of clarity: This is the NEW group auto-created by the system when I created the book club page.)

As it’s really very handy to have the combined book club and discussion group features, I suggest we continue using the new discussion group henceforth — I’ll post a message corresponding with this one in the old group, too.

So, if you are / were a member of the old Discworld discussion group but haven’t signed up for membership with the new Discworld Book Club yet, you may want to do so now.

Also: Once I’ve posted the message in the old Discworld group, I’ll start transferring our old posts and discussions from that group to the new group.  So if you’re already a member of the new club (+ group) and see lots of notifications for me having posted something in the new group, please disregard — this is just me replicating the discussions we already had.  (I may not do all of them, but I at least want to copy the essentials across.)

Ahem.  As you were …

Halloween Bingo 2021: Card, Spells, Markers and Book Pool

Phew!  I’ve had blog display issues for the better part of August due to a stupid WP plugin acting up (and of course, it was a plugin allegedly intended to “facilitate” the import of content into my chosen theme — haha, right), but luckily they were resolved just in time for Halloween Bingo! (Gosh … […]

June 2021 and Mid-Year Reading Recap

Sigh.  Well, I think posting a monthly (and even half-year) reading recap a full three weeks into the next month has to be some sort of record, even for me, but here we are.  And I admit that at this point I’d even been contemplating holding off another week so as to combine this with […]

Dorothy L. Sayers: The Five Red Herrings

Dorothy L. Sayers is occasionally accused of having gotten too caught up in her research for a given book; and the two mysteries that routinely come up in this context are The Nine Tailors (bell ringing, published in 1934) and, well, The Five Red Herrings (1931), which, although chiefly concerned with fishing and painting, also […]
