I have been reading the books for about 2 years so I consider myself a newbie
1. How did you come to read your first Discworld book?
-I was at Victoria Station (London) on my way home and went into the book department at WHS and made my way to the Fantasy shelf and saw the covers and thought they looked like fun, so I bought two books, the Colour of Magic and Wintersmith. It was just a coincidence, but a very good one
2. What was your first Discworld book?
3. Will you read more?
I have 9 books left of the Discworld books and almost all the non-Discworld books
4. Which one do you intend to read next?
-Whichever I get for my Birthday
It will probably be one about the Watch
5. If you didn't start with Colour of Magic, how easily did you find it to get into Discworld? Did you feel that some background knowledge was necessary
-No, I didn´t. At least not when I read it myself but when I made an oral bookreport of it in school and the teacher started asking questions that could not be answered with only Wintersmith as a reference I just felt the urge to read more and get to know the whole Disc
It was easy to understand the book even though I had not read the two previous ones with Tiffany but Wintersmith got much better when I had read the first ones.
I´m really really happy I found these books. They are great and I just want more!
