Yes, you're right. When we were creating the Guide, my friend the illustrator linked to the wrong novel. I should have noticed this much sooner, sorry :-(. I'll remember to fix it once I'll be working on a new version.

welcome to the site funkybuddah_0203 , jo82 and tellur !!!!
I myself started with them in choronological order as I thought that was best in a way I think I made the right decision as I definitely see the world evolve, luckily I didnt see the sky adaptations apart from going postal so I luckily have the books view on hogfather,colour of magic,light fantastic I fully believe in all book tv/film adaptations you ought to read the book first :) [such as in harry potter]
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

I agree, that's what I did/am doing. Have only seen 5 mins of colour of magic on TV but that was after I read the book. Haven't seen any of Hogfather (have flicked through the script book and seen the pictures,though) or Going Postal but may buy them soon once I have finished the series.

Will be starting Night Watch next week or sooner, am now 100 pages for the end of THe Science of Disworld II (see, extreme chronology).

WOW! I feel at honoured!

So far it is much more readable than the first one but you couldn't have had it without the first. The science in the first one was interesting but it is a lot more fun reading about human nature in this one + the actualplot flows better as a story. I also believe it is the best use of Rinsewind's character that I have read so far (not having read Science III or UA yet).

Reckon I will have it finished in a couple of days and report back.

My name is Bouncy Castle, and I admit to skipping the science bits, and just reading the story!

Sometimes I read them and it goes in one eye and out the other - if that phrase works for reading as well as listening - but then I re-read pages and I seem to just about understand!

Slightly!
