Discworld December Group Read

Guards! Guards!  - Terry Pratchett

 

In all the Festive Tasks excitement, let's all not forget that our December group read also starts today -- and it's a truly great one (IMHO one of the best books in the entire series): the first book of the Night Watch subseries, and though actually written almost exactly 30 years ago, Pratchett could have published it, essentially word for word, as his comment on today's world.  I read it for Halloween Bingo 2019 and was completely and utterly blown away.

 

Speaking of Festive Tasks, however, it of course does also qualify for the "Hogswatch" book task ... as well as "Festivus", "All Saints' Day / Día de los Muertos", and "Guy Fawkes Night".
