Teaser Tuesday: Hogfather

Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

 

“BUT THE HOGFATHER CAN CHANGE THINGS. LITTLE MIRACLES ALL OVER THE PLACE, WITH MANY A MERRY HO, HO, HO. TEACHING PEOPLE THE REAL MEANING OF HOWSWATCH, ALBERT.”*  (pg 232)

 

From Hogfather by Terry Pratchett

 

*For those who have not yet read Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series I am not shouting. That is Death speaking.

Your footnote made me giggle! Also, it is very Pratchett appropriate and clever.
I am hoping to read this over Christmas although I should perhaps read Reaper Man first, I think. The teaser has definitely teased me though and I want to read it NOW.

I so want to read this series. Makes sense that Death would speak in all caps!
