Now reading

Making Money by Terry Pratchett. I finally found myself in the mood to read this, after having listened to the abridged audio book. I am enjoying all the little jokes and witticisms that were left out in the abridgement. Here is one - I think it was actually in the audio version, but it's worth quoting:

Time turned the evil bastards into rogues, and rogue was a word with a twinkle in its eye and nothing to be ashamed of.

I wonder if Mr. Pratchett reads historical romances? The rogue is such a common male lead in them that this sentence could be part of the historical romance writer's rules of storytelling.
