Ooh, really tough question! I think the City Watch books are my favourite over all, but Wee Free Men stands out as the one which made me laugh so much I had tears running down my face.

Difficult question. Maybe Hogfather, maybe Going Postal and I really like Interesting Times also. Also Mort. I'm undecided. I think.

Favourite is probably too strong a word. I'll always have a soft spot for Mort, because that was the first Pratchett I ever read.
But having being in bands, Soul Music really speaks to me. Sir T must have been in bands and played crappy gigs on the toilet circuit to have written it :lol:

And in Heather's case, there were sometimes Third Thoughts and Fourth Thoughts, although these were quite difficult to manage and sometimes led her to walk into doors

For me it is Night Watch as it is one I can read again and again, but I like almost all the books
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Currently re-reading Guards Guards, and loving it all over again, but high in the rankings (in no particular order) would be Going Postal, Making Money, Pyramids, Soul Music and Moving Pictures (my current handbag book for use on trains!!).

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Wee Free Men is a great book.

any of the city watch books.

Lords and Ladies always gets me laughing, in particular Hodgessarrgh, and Casanunder.

I couldn't possibly choose one, but the DEATH and Tiffany Aching and Watch books are up there at the top.
In the beginning there was nothing, and then it exploded.

Nightwatch is my favourite, closely followed by Lords & Ladies :)

A bit difficult to answer that one. I do like the Wee Free Men and the C.O.Magic. and LF and GG nope can't just pick one. :)

It is very difficult to choose.
I would say "Sourcery" - because I find the wizards hilarious - and "Hogfather" - because Death is by far my favourite character.

Ohhhh I think Dotsie has one of those "Big-book-inna-handbag" things for on the train. Though I think SHE uses HERS to wallop people over the head if they won't get up and give her a seat.
