(If you're wondering why I tag books as "non-white author" - see here.)

Raven - Thank you so much for the three(!) books you sent for SantaThing. They were my only surprise gifts this year, and I loved opening them and reading each one's back cover. I hope your SantaThing Santa was just as good to you. Happy 2010. Cheers! Nancy
Ah. Just curious cause i had never even heard of jerome k. jerome til i had read connie willis' book. she has since sort of dissapointed me as it appears that she's only written 3 good books out of the entirety of her ouvre, but i have to thank her for introducing me to jerome k. jerome. that and the three good ones she wrote were really good. it's just a shame there were only three.
Your review of night watch happened to pop up on my own review page and caught my eye. I believe you to be 100% correct in everything you said. Vimes is one of the richest characters in all of discworld and Night Watch really gets into his various dichotomies. Well done. On a website where, up until now, I hadn't fully agreed with anyone's review of a book, you broke the streak.

I see you also own Connie Willis' "To say nothing of the dog" and Jerome Jerome's "Three men in a boat". Just out of curiosity which did you own First?
