today's accomplishments... [Aug. 13th, 2010|01:01 pm]

Dad got the door to the laundry area hung today, I helped a little. After that I ran an errand for a friend, looked at light bedcovers because the store was next door to the errand (didn't get any, they weren't my taste and reeked of incense) and came home for several episodes of Daybreak season 1. It has passed the test of "did the pilot interest me and is it acted well enough to bear watching". So I'm about 3 episodes into season 1, and enjoying it. I tried Boomtown a few weeks ago, didn't get past 10 minutes of the first episode before I not only send the Netflix disc back, but nixed the entire series from my queue.

I've also started sorting the living room while watching the show. I found the floor again, and resorted many toys into their bins. I suspect that with the long school days I'll be able to get everything in it's proper place by the end of next week, perhaps even sort out the bookshelves like I've been planning for years.

And I decided to get into the Terry Pratchett Discworld series,  but have to hunt down the order of book since there are so many and I prefer to start at the beginning. That series should keep me busy for quite awhile.

Tonight if possible i'll do more painting downstairs, and work on sorting stuff so I can sand and paint the remainder of the tv room. The landing and stairwell still need tending, but they are down further on the list of priorities.

Discworld isn't a strict series like Dresden. There isn't one true reading order to the Discworld series - Pratchett jumps around a lot between different. It took a couple of books for Pratchett to get good (and he changed some of the world rules), so I'd skip the first few.

Have a chart. I'd start with the watch books first, and read either the witches or death books next (and skip Rincewind, except Unseen Academicals). Of course, that's just my opinion, and everyone's varies.

Same recommendation here, although I do know people who love the Rincewind books. :) And I do consider them readable, just not as good as the rest of Pratchett.
