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

I’m sure you’re neither the first nor the last to confuse Terry Pratchett for Terry Brooks! What a fortunate confusion though

I really enjoy that the footnotes are what pulled you in; Pratchett wields them like a master.
