Lit Lists: Magical Universities/Schools! You want to learn magic? well study hard and you may be accepted to one of these…

So this is a new feature where I make a list of books (with photos of course) based on a particular theme. The themes will range from very broad to very specific depending on where my little heart takes me. It could be a wild ride (probably not though. Reading lists of books is actually a rather sedate activity, now isnt it?). The books may also be either books I’ve read, am currently reading, or books on my TBR. I may also take requests for list themes. We’ll see if you’re very good little daffodils who eat all their vegetables. So, up this week is magical universities.

His work is so wonderful, and all his books deserve covers such as these. Unforunately, only half the series has been released in these editions, released by Gollancz, but the rest of the series is owned by a different publisher. It would be nice if we could see some kind of collaboration to complete this amazing collection. You can get them here: The Unseen University Collection: The Colour of Magic, The Light Fantastic, Sourcery, Moving Pictures, Eric  The Death Collection: Hogfather, Mort, Reaper Man, Soul Music The City Watch Collection: Jingo, Guards! Guards!, Feet of Clay, Men at Arms, Interesting Times The Witches Collection: Equal Rites, Wyrd Sisters, Witches …
