"Great A'Tuin, the star turtle, who supports the weight of the Discworld, labours through the galactic night, the only creature in the entire universe that knows exactly where it is going.

As it moves towards a seemingly inevitable collision with a malevolent red star, the Discworld has only one possible savior.

This is where the dragons went. They lie...not dead, not asleep, but...dormant. And although the space they occupy isn't like normal space, nevertheless they are packed in tightly.

The secret life of happiness( Visual )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Answers to the most fundamental question in life? Talking to scientists and sufferers, The Secret Life of Happiness explains what brings you up and what grinds you down. What are the secrets of a happy life? Love? Money? Beauty? Success? A bit of all of these things goes a long way, but they are not the keys to happiness. In fact money and beauty can be the path to a miserable life. The Secret Life of Happiness, shot in Britain and America, talks to millionaires and models and finds out why they are less than happy; it shows how much a good marriage matters, and reveals how your chances of having a happy marriage may be determined by your childhood relationships. The Secret Life of Happiness explains why playing computer games can make you feel good, why being a geriatric pole-vaulter could be a good thing and analyses the science behind why for some people 'the glass is half full' and for others it's 'half empty'. The programme also meets some cutting-edge scientists who are using human experiments to find out what it is that happens in our brains to make us feel good. It is well known that man can simulate those feelings using drugs, but we also have our own naturally produced chemicals that switch on when we achieve certain goals in life, or even simply complete a satisfying task. And finally The Secret Life of Happiness shows why laughter really does make you feel happier. A BBC educational resource looking at the science of happiness and why laughter really is the best medicine

Mort by Terry Pratchett( Recording )

8 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mort is an unpromising, gangling teenager who becomes an apprentice to Death, but proves less than gifted at his new task of ushering souls out of the world. In fact, when it comes to the rather attractive Princess Keli (due to be assassinated), Mort fluffs it completely. He kills the assassin instead, thus interfering with the implacable workings of Fate. But reality isn't changed so easily; history as it should have been begins to take shape around Keli's city-state of Sto Lat. Can Mort save Keli before she is squeezed out of existence? Death, having delegated much of his work to Mort, is displaying disturbingly human characteristics: drinking, dice-playing and becoming curious about the nature of fun. Mort, meanwhile, is becoming much less cheery and showing a worrying tendency to SPEAK IN HOLLOW CAPITALS

He wants peace and justice and brotherly love. He wants the Inquisition to stop torturing him now, please. But most of all, what he really wants, more than anything else, is for his god to Choose Someone Else ... *Which is true, but when has that ever mattered?"--Container
