One the basis of those that I read repeatedlyand enjoy them more each time my top three would be:-
Guards! Guards!
Night Watch.
Going Postal.

I have read all the novels more than once. Read the whole series in order three(?) times now.

When I first saw this thread I thought "Easy!" but now I've been pondering it for ages and I'm struggling to whittle it down to 3, I keep remembering ones I've not read for a while!
I think this is it, probably subject to change though.

3. Going postal
2. Soul Music
1. Interesting Times

Nope it's no use, I cant get just three, I love The Truth, Wyrd Sisters, Sourcery and quite a few others just as much.
It would be easier listing the ones I like the least.

1. Hogfather
2. Thud
Thats it. :D

Interesting Times is my absolute favourite of all time. Read it more times than I've had hot dinners.
Next would be Reaper Man
Third is a close call between Small Gods and Soul Music but if I had to pick then it would be Small Gods. I can relate to the Little Man (Brutha)
