- Katerina: For seventeen years I've done the best I could to raise the two of you.
- Katerina: Have I been perfect? No. Do I know anything about children? No! Should I have picked up a book on parenting? Probably!
- Katerina: Where was I going with this? I had a point.
I was buying a book for my mother for Christmas, and I was in the bookstore and mistook Terry Pratchett for Terry Brooks (who my mum loves). So I picked up the newest-looking book (unseen academicals). Well, she was confused and just sort of stuck it on a shelf. Eventually, I opened it to take a look and saw that 3/4 of the 1st page was footnotes, thought that was neat. Then at the library I saw Sourcery, recognized Pratchett, gave it a read, and now I never shut up about Discworld
