Nah - it seems like a lot of people change their minds about the books about as often as they change their socks. :lol:

I'd have to go with:

Guards! Guards!

Night Watch

Small Gods


These are in no particular order, and sometimes Mort and Going Postal elbow up there when the other books aren't looking.
