:lol: *tuts* such obsessions with 'ends' - perhaps we'd better end this particular tangent and get back to quarrelling - sorry debating over which book's supposed to the best to start getting acquainted with Discworld :wink:

My first toe-dip into the Ankh was Going Postal.

No wonder I was traumatised, and it took me a year to get up the courage to try again (from the beginning!!).

:lol:

It took me ages to realise that I should just ignore reality and go with the flow.

I'm still concerned about Pin Collecting! :wink:

I started with 3 rincewind books then onto thud then maskerade, just the order i'm able to find them in the library but they're surprisingly easy to pick up anywhere! I suppose reading discworld books involves a lot of putting aside of common sense and chronological order!
