I have to say, Emelie, it makes me sad that you won't try Pratchett's books because of the covers. I cannot say how much I have loved them through the years. When my mom bought me The Wee Free Men as a kid, I thought I'd never be happy with any other book ever again (I have to admit, I still suffer from that; most recently after finishing A Dance With Dragons). As for books I refuse to read. Silmarillon. I KNOW! It's an amazing book by an amazin author, but still, no matter how many time sI have tried to read it, I can't do it! It always ends in me putting it away in fear of actually torturing myself to death by going on. It's sad, because I really want to read it, but I just can't. It's the same with Hrurin's Children, too. Knowing myself though, I will probably try again in a few years. I always do that, I don't want to gice up completely on things. Like The Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks. I couldn't make myself read it, then two years later I swallowed all three books and begged for more. Sadly, the same can't be said about tea. I have tried liking tea since I was a child, and I just can't do it. And chocolate on my slice of bread in the morning. How can anyone like that? Really?
