Mid Week Quote: Terry Pratchett

Hello!

This year marks the 50 year anniversary of the publication of The Carpet People by Terry Pratchett. Pratchett wrote the book when he was 17 years old, but he later re-wrote the book when he was a well established author.

Due to this and because Pratchett is one of my all time favourite authors I have gone for a quote by Pratchett.

“A good bookshop is just a genteel Black Hole that knows how to read.”

Terry Pratchett
