September on AustCrimeFiction

September Monthly Summary (told you I had a cunning plan). Although the posting itself is late because of RIDICULOUSLY early fire weather with extreme heat and gale force winds. In October.

Good grief.

Not much reading last month - time off in an attempt to get some things organised before himself headed off on a work trip.

Currently Reading - Wyrd Sisters, Terry Pratchett

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Second from a weekend's reading of taking it very easy.

From the Blurb:

Terry Pratchett’s fantasy classic Wyrd Sisters, a novel in the Discworld series, is the story of Granny Weatherwax, the most highly regarded non-leader a coven of non-social witches could ever have.

CR - Sourcery, Terry Pratchett

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Another re-read as I work my way slowly, with so much enjoyment, back through this very favourite series. 

From the Blurb:

When last seen, the singularly inept wizard Rincewind had fallen off the edge of the world. Now magically, he's turned up again, and this time he's brought the Luggage.

But that's not all....

CR - The Light Fantastic, Terry Pratchett

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

A wonderful way to start off the month, after a rather heavy lifting month of strong, very good Australian Crime fiction, I turned to the 2nd Discworld book in my re-read of this very favourite series.

From the Blurb:

CR - The Colour of Magic, Terry Pratchett

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Promised myself that I would go back to the very start of the Discworld series and work my way through, just because. It's a bittersweet experience, and it's bringing back some rather uncomfortable memories of giggling my way through many commuter journeys with a lot of space around me, despite the crowded train / tram.

From the Blurb:

In the beginning there was…a turtle.

Currently Reading - The Science of Discworld III Darwin's Watch

Science made actually interesting. A minor miracle in my experience. (There is real science in this book delightfully "illustrated" by classic Discworld machinations).

From the Blurb:

The wizards discover to their cost that it’s no easy task to change history.
