Letting go  
Back in August, The Shepherds Crown was released and, like many other Discworld fans, I got it on day of release and began to read it. Normally I plough through books in a day or so, especially Discworld, which I devour more than read. But here we are in December, and I have still got two chapters to go.

I had dismissed it, after all I've had a busy year, but last night I realised why I hadn't finished it - this is the last Discworld book. When I finish it there will be no more new adventures on the Disc, at least none written by Terry Pratchett. And I can't bear that thought. If I never finish it then there will always be an unread chapter.

But I know that wouldn't honour Sir Pterry and he'd probably be the first to mock me for being so ridiculous. So, tonight, I will say goodbye to Tiffany Aching, to the Witches of Lancre, to the Disc and to Sir Terry Pratchett when I read the last chapter.
This week I am mostly feeling: pensivepensive

That's actually totally logical....

I need to sit down and read the Discworld books sometime. (Why did I type that as 'wooks' instead of books?)

I can totally understand that. When something has been with you for such a long time as Discoworld has done, it's very difficult to say goodbye ~sigh~ Difficult and really... no, not sad, but certainly, bittersweet
