I've just finished reading equal rites - a Terry Pratchett.

Equal Rites: A Discworld Novel The last thing the wizard Drum Billet did, before Death laid a bony hand on his shoulder, was to pass on his staff of power to the eighth son of an eighth son. Unfortunately for his colleagues in the chauvinistic (not to say misogynistic) world of magic, he failed to check on the new-born baby's sex...

It is quite funny - I love the witches (Although not as much as the police farce that exists in Ankh-Morpork.) They are fantasic little old ladies who get stuck in with their headology!
My copy is a little battered and torn now so I will look out for a newer copy. It's strange but we have nearly 2 full sets of pratchetts - we combined out collections when we moved in together and have got some spares! Should really sort them all out and see what I'm missing and maybe give a set away!
