I'm guessing you like Terry Prachett? lol

I've never read him before, what's he like?

Lol, yeah. :) I'd never been interested in his books before, but I'd heard of them. I had one of his books given to me as a birthday/Christmas present in 2005, but I'd never read it, and my brother had some of his books. But then I saw Sky Ones The Hogfather just before Christmas and it interested me. I borrowed the books off my brother.

They're quite good actually. :) I've just started reading a fourth book of his (the 5th in the series), and it's good. It can be a bit trying sometimes though, when the author explains the universe and the Creator. And it's confusing about the 8th color. :S Something we were talking about in Biology before Christmas. How do you describe a color to a person who can't see? There is no way to describe it.

Yeah, that's true, the only way to describe a colour is to say it's orange or whatever, and somebody who can't see would never know what that is. So yeah, that's a very good point! I think it would be awful to be blind :( Imagine not being able to see anything O.o

I think it would be awful too. :( I'd really hate to end up blind when I get older.

Ohh Enid Blyton! I used to read her books so much as a kid! I should buy some to re-read really, how are you enjoying them as an adult?

I still think that they are good, but when I read them recently, I found some bits that seemed different to me that when I read that while young.
