Discworld

The First Great Discworld Audit!

Discworld Audit

As Weather Bomb Doris (okay,
Storm Doris) struck I was told my route was cancelled so I’ve ended up with an unwanted day off. Given the winds in north Wales it is not a bad day not to be out (but it means that I’ll have to work on Saturday or Sunday this weekend instead. Bit of a bugger, but so be it).

So what to do today while I’m avoiding the weather? Reading and Writing, definitely. But I also thought it’s about time I actually checked what Discworld books I’ve got. I’ve read a fair few of the 42 book series, but I know there’s books out there with my name on them next time I’m in a second-hand bookshop. The nicest books I've got are the first three of the series from the Unseen Library - a lucky buy when they first came out!

Here are the Discworld books in the order they were written (those in
bold are the books I have on my shelves, those in blue I ain't got).

Things I have learned:

  • I have 9 books to look forward to which weren’t on my Reading List this year. Huzzah!
  • I have two copies of Pyramids. (I think maybe of Feet of Clay too)
  • I should put all the same author books together and not spread across four bookshelves.
  • I’m sure I’ve read Mort, but it looks like I’ve an excuse to get again. After that I’ve evidently got a few gaps to fill in.
  • I should have done this earlier… how many times have I walked passed these books and not picked up because I thought I’d read them…?
  • I need to print-out this list for next time I'm in a second-hand bookshop.
