Of course! That's a silly question! And once I'm done I'll probably start over! Or, possibly re-read my favourites (Feet of Clay, Maskerade and Men at Arms for now) first again, and then start over. I'll skip the Rincewind ones, as he just annoys me to bits

I don't know which Rincewind books you've tried but the first few are very different to what comes later with the evolution of the Disc. Personally, I enjoyed them all but prefer the 'Rincewind series' from Eric onwards. :D

But they just didn't grab me. Strangely enough I did quite enjoy The Last Continent. And The Last Hero was a bit in between, for me.
So for the re-read I think I'll focus on the Watch and Witches series first. Or the Wizards, as I have a soft spot for Mustrum (and not just because of my forum name... ).
Welcome to the forum, Esme! I'm there with you about the Rincewind books. He's a one-note character, and little better than a straight man to all the eccentric characters that show up in his books. There was just nowhere to go with him in terms of character development, so you can see why Pterry relegated him to cameo appearances after The Last Continent.
