Terry Pratchett: Carpe Jugulum – Reading Progress Update: 175 of 425 Pages

This is one of my left-over Halloween Bingo books; I’m reading it for the Calan Gaeaf part of square 1 of the “16 Tasks of the Festive Season”.

I started this book last night because I urgently needed a comfort read after Val McDermid’s disappointing Forensics.  So far, it’s not really doing the job, however … too little Granny Weatherwax!  (And decidedly also too little Greebo, for that matter.)  I trust Granny will return in time for the grand finale, but man … a Discworld Witches book where she scarcely even shows her face during almost the entire first half of the book?  What was Pratchett doing, trying to demonstrate what an essential part of the Witches subseries Granny is?  Thank you, I already knew that without having it jammed into my face sledgehammer-style!

J.R.R. Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings – Performed by Andy Serkis

In another online community, we recently talked about the new Andy Serkis Lord of the Rings recordings.  Well, it turns out that the pull of The Ring is still mighty strong, for however much it may have been destroyed in Mount Doom. I had barely gotten my hands on these audios and I found I […]
