I will finally be reading Snuff by Terry Pratchett!
I have waited soooo long to read the last few Discworld books, because I wanted them in the new Collector’s Edition, and now they’re finally here! And they’re pretty, and shiny – and now I need to come up with an excuse to cancel all my plans in the near future.
No, I’m not excited or anything.
And I’m not getting an existential crisis at the thought that this will be the last time I read a City Watch book for the first time. Don’t be ridiculous.

And Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch is on holiday in the pleasant and innocent countryside, but not for him a mere body in the wardrobe. There are many, many bodies and an ancient crime more terrible than murder.
He is out of his jurisdiction, out of his depth, out of bacon sandwiches, and occasionally snookered and out of his mind, but never out of guile. Where there is a crime there must be a finding, there must be a chase and there must be a punishment.
They say that in the end all sins are forgiven.
But not quite all…
