Author Terry Pratchett died today March 12, 2015

Terry Pratchett, the imaginative and prolific author of the Discworld series, died today from complications of Alzheimer's Disease. The last book I read by Pratchett, Dodger, was not only a Printz Honor book but it is also one of my favorites. I loved the quirky characters and the seamless way the reader was introduced to British history without hitting them in the head with it.

The world is definitely going to miss this guy.

Rest in Peace, Terry Pratchett. You will live on in our hearts through your books!

Please visit the BBC for more details about his career and his death.

I am feeling very sad right now...
