My fascination for the Discworld is becoming more worrying as time goes by and I find myself re-reading the books by choice. Often.
Don't worry Janet, what you're doing is quite normal!
Terry is pretty much the only author whose books I can re-read regularly and still enjoy. It always used to surprise me that on each reading I would pick up on missed jokes and references, while discovering hidden depths within the work. Nowadays, I know when I buy a new Discworld novel (or any one of Terry's other works) it will probably take at least three reads before I can understand and appreciate the full (or almost full
) scope of the storytelling and satire - and that I will still enjoy every page of it!
