Unless the talks is about what formally were the Watch books and are now Vimes books.

Re - The woman in the shop. My step-mother refers Discworld as 'those childrens books you read'. I mean, really!
So did I with every watchbook after Men At Arms as it became less humorous and more focused on Vimes being a detector.
I don't mean the events in general were bad, just that it HAD to be vimes and not some new character with no connection to AM.
