The Fifth Elephant Terry Pratchett owl

The Bookish Owl – The Fifth Elephant by Terry Pratchett

Aaaaaaaaand, I'm back on the Discworld! Just started on The Fifth Elephant by Terry Pratchett, featuring Sam Vimes and his Watch. And since Sam Vimes is basically me (if I had been male and a guard captain in a fantasy book), I'm feeling right at home. The eternal battle between ...

The Bookish Owl – The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski

So, I'm taking a short break from Discworld to indulge in some monster-slaying goodness! I just started reading The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski (I will never not need to google the spelling of that...), which is the first book in the Polish book series the amazing Witcher video games are ...

Artemis the Owl FAQ

Two Girls and an Owl

This Saturday brought along a lot of geekery. My costume-obsessed friend Simone had two Harry Potter-themed costumes lying around and I had an owl...

Waterstones Is Training Delivery Owls. I Wonder If Artemis Can Get a Job?

Apparently Waterstones decided that if they can't top Amazon in anything else, they will top them in crazy! I thought it was pretty far-fetched when Amazon announced their new Prime Air program a few days ago, where they intend to deliver packages by drones, but it didn't brighten up my ...

Mighty, Mighty Artemis

One of my friends told me that my owl was ridiculously photogenic... Looking at this picture, it seems that he also thinks so himself! Clearly, he doesn't think I have any business being in HIS picture. Insolent human... You can just see the plans for world domination in his eyes ...

Owl Army

Army of Artemis

I'm not really sure what goes through people's mind when I tell them I own an owl... You would think they would just accept the reality that I'm odd and be done with it, but it seems like they need to do something to remind me that I have an owl. I ...
