I'm watching now (youth librarian) so I'll update if anything else comes up! :D
On a related note, I work at a library and I've got an extra copy of the next book on the list, Gur Jrr Serr Zra. I already own two copies (one paper, one ebook) so I'd like to offer it to someone on the list who needs a copy. It's a paperback American edition (this cover: http://images.paperbackswap.com/l/80/2380/9780060... and I'll send it to you free of charge. Just want to spread the love! Email me at selecasharp @ gmail.com if you're interested. :)
1. Dairine and Roshaun will discuss ~feelings~ at some point.
2. Which I guess means I'm predicting Roshaun and the others are sticking around.
3. There will be a war?
4. Ooh, maybe the newly evolved Alaalu can intervene somehow...
5. I'd like it if two aspects of the Lone Power duked it out! The redeemed one vs an earlier spiteful aspect would be super cool...
6. Okay I'm really just listing things I WANT to happen, rather than making predictions...
7. Here's one! Carmela will be AWESOME.
8. And Darryl will come back! And maybe S'reee too.
Also! I still have both a copy of Wizard's Holiday and the next book, Wizards at War, in hardcopy. If anyone would like a copy of Wizard's Holiday for fun, or NEEDS a copy of the next book, let me know and I'll send it/them to you! I'm told they're pretty close to the NME.
Also, PONCH IS A GOOD DOG.

Off to read!
I also have a question/offer - I work in a library and we just got a donation of the (original, pretty sure) copies of this book (Wizard's Holiday) and the next one, Wizards at War. For those who've read both (I'm reading the NME), how different are they from the NME? And if they're not too different, is anyone interested in them? I'm willing to mail them out to anyone who needs a copy.
ETA: I never got two weeks either, but my high school had pretty decent food. Not that I ate it often, though.
I noticed that too, but I now think that's deliberate on Pratchett's part, pointing out how Basilica and Agnes are treated very differently by the world while being treated similarly by the narrative. It was when the phrase 'It was an education to watch [them do something]' came up again - Agnes had it a few sections back, about turning around, and now it's repeated about watching Basilica eat. Using the exact same phrasing about both of them - a kind of odd phrasing at that - points out the double standard of how they're received, if that makes sense. I can't say for sure it was, of course, but I think so. And that helps a lot, for me.
On a totally different note, The Wee Free Men ebook is on sale for $1.99 today on Amazon, if anyone wants to snag it now! http://www.amazon.com/Wee-Free-Men-Discworld-Book... (It's book 30, according to this, so there is a character name spoiler if you follow the link!)
