    Discworld

    I really need to read/watch the Discworld stuff.

    Discworld is a lot more important than people give it credit.

    Everyone needs more Discworld in their lives. It’s brilliant satire that isn’t condescending, and it’s entertaining. At the same time! I really can’t express how much I love Discworld.

    Everyone really does! I recommend it to everyone who comes into my work (it’s a bookshop so not all that weird)
