Share Your World – February 26, 2018

What are you reading right now?

Lords And Ladies
I only read on my Kindle and at the moment am reading through the Terry Pratchett Discworld series in between. I am now on the 14th book in the series and like to read one now and again. I very much like the Pratchett Humour.

What was your first adult job?

I was a shorthand typist in the pay department of the P. & O shipping company in London. I afterwards transferred to the Conference Department which was attached to the direction of the company and found the work very interesting. It was probably a foundation for my future.

What’s your favorite breakfast cereal?

I do not touch breakfast cereal and I discovered that milk in the morning does not agree with me and my digestion. There is a lactose problem somewhere. I stick to my bread and jam and a cup of tea.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? 

I am making progress with my broken leg. I can now get into the shower in the morning and if the weather gets better, I will again be out and about in my wheelchair. I have a super therapist and she is a great support for me.

  1. My children love the Terry Pratchett books. I been reading whoduunits, a series by Deborah Crombie, set in the UK. The one I’ve just finished is, Where memories lie, then two books by Martin O’Brien, Jacquot and the master, plus Jacquot and the angel, which are set in France.

    • I have many book series that I follow and if I started to list them here I would not have enough room. I like a bit of supernatural, mixed with humour and stories centered in London are always good as that is where I grew up and I know the town so well.

  2. I’ve read every disc world book at least twice (except the last one, “The Shepherd’s Crown”). I adore DEATH (who doesn’t?) and I keep quoting to people from the Nightwatch books. At the moment “Jingo” seems (unfortunately) particularly relevant. But my favourite Terry Pratchett book (cum Neil Gaiman) is still “Bad Omens”, I’ve had several copies in my reading-life-time, some where lent (and never returned), one fell in the bath tub (which is ironic because Sir Terry has heard this one quite often as he admitted in an interview), at least one or two have disappeared mysteriously. My favourite quote: “Sodomy Non Sapiens” (it means: buggered if I know).

    • Death is my favourite character. He only speaks in capitals.. I also like Niel Gaimen. And have read Bad Omens. I only actually read on my Kindle as after filling six book cabinets, I no longer have room for more books

      • My mistake (and what a clanger!): It is, of course, “Good Omens”. — I too, read only e-books these days (same reason) but about half of my discworld books are still paperbacks. And I have Good Omens now also on my reader (and hopefully, won’t lose it like that) but my loss of copies dates back to the 1990s up to 2010.
