Here on The Eagle's Aerial Perspective, for the entire month of September, things will be centered on Terry Pratchett and his books. The co-host of this event is Deepali at Evolving Books, who runs a great book blog.
Of course, there will be other posts for blogfests, the Third Writer's Platform-Building Campaign, other events, and I am part of the Upgrader: Re-Engineered blog tour (see sidebar button--I post on the sixth with an interview with the awesome Terry Tibke).
But for the rest of the month? Pratchett.
Here's the plan:
Date: September 4, 7, 11, 14, 18, 21, 25, and 28 (Sundays and Wednesdays): Book Reviews
These will be of not just Discworld, but include his YA books, along with other non-Discworld novels and a movie they made of his books. Of course, I will start with a review The Color of Magic, the first in the Discworld series. Since I have only read six of his books currently, some of reviews will be coming fresh after I read them in sequence this month.
Date: September 8, 15, 22, and 29 (Thursdays): Discussion Posts
For the writerly, or just non-Pratchett readers of this blog, these posts will be like the usual posts I publish on Thursdays. What will I be covering? Posts will be up on personification of the abstract (DEATH, anyone?), world-building, humor, writing style, and other such subjects.
And, of course, Teaser Tuesdays will continue on, well, Tuesdays.
There will also be a poll on the sidebar, once the current one closes, where you will be able to vote for your favorite book(s) in the Discworld Series, along with a separate poll for his other novels.
Feel free to jump onboard with your own Terry Pratchett thoughts! This is the month for everything to do with his books, after all.
Deepali has also set up a challenge for readers: for old fans, read 4-5 of his books in September, and for new ones, 2-3. Find out more HERE.
Are you ready?
