I think Terry Pratchett was saying on the news last week that he was in the middle of writing a couple of other books at the moment, but I'm not sure if there's a new discworld lined up for next year or not.

After finishing Snuff last week I've not really read anything, I've been playing video games instead *guilty face*. I've started reading the 4th Dresden files book today though, I have such a huge tbr pile it's depressing.

I'm getting back into Janny Wurts' Wars of Light and Shadow, finally. If anything, it's even better than I remember, but this does mean I will be (okay, already have been) wittering on endlessly about it to anyone who'll even half-listen. Sorry...

I was recently posted some Janny Wurts books... not read any yet though =/

Just finished my ARC of Myke Cole's Shadow Ops: Control Point.  And I'm not really supposed to say it was awesome until January, so I'll keep quiet for now. ;)

I've got two Pratchett books on the go at the moment. I'm reading Small Gods and Good Omens. Just started them so no real opinions no them yet, but I'm ashamed to say these are the first Pratchett books I've read.

Finished Un Lun Dun, which was just brilliant. Now have bought Crossroads of Twilight again, and plan to finish that by next week.from what I heard its the last really poor Wheel of Time book before the series comes back to life again.

It is a YA(ish) book, also released under the name: 'The Two Pearls of Wisdom'.

It is written by Alison Goodman (I posted an article by her about first pages a few days ago you may have seen)

Just finished Tome of the Undergates. It was an enjoyable read.

I'm reading Haruki Murakami's The Wind Up Bird Chronicle part 1 La Gazza Ladra (The Thieving Magpie) right now.

I finished Ernest Cline's Ready Player One this morning (that's SF, but highly enjoyable and one of the best I've read this year), I'll have a review up on my blog soon. I'm going to start Gail Carriger's Blameless (third of her Parasol Protectorate) later today.
I will expand your TBR pile.
