I bought this for myself (I'm a bit of a TP fan ;)). In the story it is
told to Sam Vimes Jr. who is only one, but then Sam Vimes Sr. re-wites
the story a bit and makes it suitable for a slightly older audience.
"The book is not an object on the table, it is an event in the reader's
mind. It's a process, through which an idea in my mind triggers an idea,
more-or-less corresponding, in yours. The words on paper are merely the
means to this end, a think-by-numbers set, a bottled daydream. The book,
therefore, is only finished when somebody reads it."
-- Lois McMaster Bujold (The Unsung Collaborator)
