and I agree, read the books.If you read them and don't like them (:shock:) ,you can just stop reading them.No harm done,nothing to loose. :)

Look inside the front cover and check out the date printed.

but the first one printed is The Colour of Magic but maybe not the best one for everyone to start on, as the style of writing was different then.

This link will take to the books on the main page of the Transworld site. :)
