  • FYI - I think most state library networks have the ability to loan ebooks for free as long as you can create an account in your local library. SA and NSW both do.

    The discworld ebooks are all on there for free and in my experience instantly available. The audiobooks are there too though sometimes you need to reserve and then wait a week or so. (My experience in SA).

  • Great book from a much missed author
