I last said I was reading Hyperion, but after about 180 pages, I found it too dreary to continue without a break. Maybe I'll never finish it. Regardless, I picked up what promised to be the funniest book on my shelf that I hadn't read yet.

Given how much I enjoyed two Discworld novels (I'd read three, but the first was merely OK), you'd think I wouldn't wait nearly four years to pick up another. Granted, Terry Pratchett's collaboration on Good Omens may have tided me over.

Cut for length )

Feeling up for another tome, I'm trying The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks. So far, it hasn't shown any fantasy premises, only fictitious geography.

I signed up with photobucket more than 10 years ago for their free account, which allowed to link and embed images anywhere on the net. I have used their service extensively both on livejournal and the forums I frequent. They have now changed their TOS. The only option to continue linking and embedding images from their site comes with price tag of $400 per year, which I can not afford. In the future, expect to see a lot of broken image links when looking at past entries and comments of mine.

At G20, Donald Trump underlined he has neither the desire nor the capacity to lead the world and you got the strong sense some leaders were trying to find the best way to work around him, says Chris Uhlmann.
