In that case, I unilaterally decree that Next Time shall be 17th September, and in the absence of any other suggestions, I fancy a return to the City Watch.

Are you both okay for 'Men At Arms'?

Done!

Update:
I've just finished reading this, and liked it a lot. Very funny, but also quite dark in places.

Loved the way Pratchett took classic stories and twisted them - plus his whole take on the nature of stories, fairy godmothers, Brits abroad (not just witches!), foreign witches etc etc.
Greebo in human form was pure joy and laugh out loud.

And now to commence 'Men at Arms'.
So sad to have lost Terry P too soon, but what a legacy of glorious books to enjoy.

I read his autobiographical book and enjoyed it. I liked his points about assisted dying having seen three relatives go from degenerative diseases and all thought you would not let a dog die like this......

I've read three of his books and for me feel when life does not make sense or the stress is too bad a Discworld novel can make me laugh again.

Yes, absolutely this. Would like to join our next re-read on 17th Sept? We'll be discussing 'Men at Arms', the second in the City Watch series.
