Discworldathon: Colour of Magic read-a-long!


Hello! I’m hosting this month’s theme for Discworldathon: Wizards! A quick poll chose The Colour of Magic as our book for the month and it makes sense to start with the very beginning!

Fortunately The Colour of Magic is, against all tradition with Discworld novels, split in to four handy parts… one for every week in February! I know we’re two days in already but if we fal a few pages behind it’s no big deal. 

So, the month is going to be set up like this, with discussions going on on Twitter/Instagram under the hashtag #discworldathon, the readalong goodreads thread and/or here if people fancy it (wherever you like really!):

Week 1: The Colour of Magic

Week 2: The Sending of Eight

Week 3: The Lure of the Wyrm 

Week 4: Close to the Edge

The last weekend (25/26th) I’ll also be hosting a mini readalong of The Last Hero- the graphic short story about wizards trying to stop an old man from killing the gods.

I’ll mainly be posting on Goodreads and Twitter to save people’s timelines on here!

Finally, I’m also hosting a giveaway on twitter if you would like the chance to win a Discworld novel of your choice!

  1. I don’t think I’ll have the chance to do the Colour of Magic readalong šŸ˜¦ but I’m up for The Last Hero – one of the last three or four Discworld books I’ve never read! I’ll mark it in my diary now.

    1. That’s fair enough!! It’s a short month too which is extra hassle! I LOVE The Last Hero and the illustrations are like definitive Discworld to me so I’m so excited to re read it!!
