Hi all! Okay, here's my back story!
1. How did you come to read your first Discworld book?
Forgive me for sounding like a ovis / Worthers Original advert here but, when I was a lad, at school it was fashionable to have two things - 1) a Parker Pen, 2) Discworld novels. It didn't matter if you had ever read the books, but it mattered that you had at least one. So, being a highly active...possibly hyperactive, early teen, I managed to acrew quite the collection, albeit having never really read any.
We were massive fans of the PC games though (and thanks to the discovery of SummVM, I am reliving my childhood paying both!)
Now I'm a twenty something, I regularly read and fancied delving into a TP book, buying Nation. Well, the rest as they say is history. I was hooked. I grabbed The Colour of Magic from the library 4 weeks back, then bought it alongside The Light Fantastic, Equal Rites, Mort and I am now up to Sourcery. The best thing is, I am enjoying the books for the first time ever yet still have a rather hefty collection on my book shelf!
2. What was your first Discworld book?
3. Will you read more?
4. Which one do you intend to read next?
Reading in chronological order, so Sourcery now then Wyrd Sisters.
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?
Not really relevant as the first book I really read was The C of M.
