The Librarian

Finally getting 'round ...

... to reading Terry Pratchett's Wintersmith. And, of course, can't resist sharing a lovely quote (on being a witch):

You had to deal every day with people who were foolish and lazy and untruthful and downright unpleasant, and you could certainly end up thinking that the world would be considerably improved if you gave them a slap. But you didn't because, as Miss Tick had once explained: a) it would only make the world a better place for a very short time; b) it would then make the world a slightly worse place; and c) you're not supposed to be as stupid as they are.

Of course there's nothing wrong with fantasizing the slapping bit a lot ... ;p
