I just purchased Jellico Road yesterday, and am eager to get into it. I have read both The Graveyard Book and The disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks and adored them both.

I too have read The Graveyard Book and The Disreputable History. Also Nation, which was not my favorite by Pratchett (and I'm a huge fan). City of Thieves was brilliant, I loved it (as did my father to whom I gifted it this year). I think I want to read A Curse as Dark as Gold next from this list...
