*Hag-like cackle* :lol:

Well - I've been putting it off for far too long so I guess I need to make a decision finally

Small Gods
Moving Pictures
Nightwatch
Lords & Ladies
The Rest of Them - I really can't choose... :?

In no particular order:

Guards guards
Witches abroad
Lords and ladies
Night watch
The fifth elephant
There were no public health laws in Ankh-Morpork. It would be like installing smoke detectors in Hell.
- Feet of clay.

Reaper man. (best Pratchett's book ever if you ask me)

Guards ! Guards ! (my favorite watch book, mostly because it's really a "watch" book and not only a "Vimes" book as the later books have become)

Mort. (Not much to say, very good and funny)

Soul Music. (niiiiiice one, many musical references, Susan kicks asses, great reading)

Feet of clay. (again a Watch book, almost perfect)

The Tiffany Aching ones are truly excellent too.

There's nothing wrong with being Batty! ... It's a Gift! ... Image
