“It was long after midnight and the stars looked damp and chilly; the air was full of the busy silence of the night, which is created by hundreds of small furry things treading very carefully in the hope of finding dinner while avoiding being the main course.”

I just started The Colour of Magic and this is probably the best thing I’ve ever read.  At least ten…

It is well known that stone can think, because the whole of electronics is based on that fact, but in some universes men spend ages looking for other intelligences in the sky without once looking under their feet. That is because they’ve got the time-span all wrong. From stone’s point of view the universe is hardly created and mountain ranges are bouncing up and down like organ-stops while continents zip backward and forward in general high spirits, crashing into each other from the sheer joy of momentum and getting their rocks off. It is going to be quite some time before stone notices its disfiguring skin disease and starts to scratch, which is just as well.

I want to pick another Discworld book for my boyfriend

He’s a slow reader and really busy lately but he’s enjoyed the Pratchett books he’s read so far:

Good Omens

Guards! Guards!

Wee Free Men.

I’m thinking either continue with the City Watch and give him Men at Arms or switch to another of my favorites with Going Postal. Or maybe go for one of the standalones and give him Small Gods? There’s just so many good options…

Probably Men at Arms, right? It feels like the “right” way to introduce him to the series but I just LOVE Going Postal. Hrmrmrmr.
