Book Beginnings and Friday 56: Sourcery


I picked up two other books (House of Leaves, Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell), hoping their page 56 would have something very quote-able… They did not. So I turned to Terry Pratchett, who writes something quote-able on almost every page.

There was a man and he had eight sons. Apart from that, he was a nothing more than a comma on the page of History. It’s sad, but that’s all you can say about some people.

“I’ve just killed a wooden box,” she said.

Rincewind looked around the corner.

The Luggage stood in the dripping street, the knife still quivering in its lid, and stared at her.

    1. If you liked Good Omens, I recommend Pratchett’s Discworld series. All the books in that series are pretty quick reads, and excellent.
