I'll have a good think about my answers and get my questionnaire sent in the next few days. Smiley

Let us talk...what is your favourite book and why...

Favourite book is such a hard question! Monstrous Regiment is my fave stand alone but...

I love the Witches books, probably because Granny Weatherwax is my favourite character. Carpe Jugulum and Witches Abroad are my top witches books because they have vampires and fairytales which appeals to me.

I also love the Watch books because fantasy and crime are my favourite genres. Most of my favourite authors write urban fantasy mystery novels (Dresden Files, Rivers of London etc) so that probably makes sense.

Oh my goodness, so I got completely behind on swaps last round because I was signed up for too many at once, but I've actually sent them all off now, so as soon as they all arrive and my feedback gets cleared, I'd love to join in with this one (and just ONE swap at a time this time!).  I've been so thrilled to see all the tribute crafts to the man already and would really like a chance to get in on this!  

My favorite is also Monstrous Regiment!  Although I also LOVE Going Postal. Smiley  I'm one of the many people who winces at the word "moist", but I can make an exception for von Lipwig. XD  I'm also a pretty big Vimes fan. And of course there's Death, and the Luggage!!  Oh, and Vetenari!

soul music.

It combines the whole disc. And is one of the first real showings of the mulitculturalness of the city. And the forst. Ime the city really comes out as a character in it's own right. It has wizards and watch and death. And Librarian. After all. Arent we all Born To Rune?

And some of the sneakiest puns in all of the books.

Witches Abroad. It was the first full force witch book and the first Pratchett I ever read.  I love stories and the importance of stories. It was like a book wrote just for me.

I love them all but Witches Abroad is my first love.

YAYAYAYAYAY!!!!

I am hard pressed to pick one favourite - I love the wicked little side notes and side glancing wry notations about human behaviour and stupidities in general, which is how I fell in love with his books from early on - love the footnotes.  I think I love Good Omens the most, but love the Discworld books in general.
