How many Discworld novels have you read?

Postby andrew » Thu Nov 18, 2010 1:23 pm

Hi everyone

I think that I already have a good sense of the subject from just reading the forum, however I thought that it would be interesting to see how many of Mr Pratchett's Discworld novels you've all read.

Obviously this is only a basic poll, and it doesn't account for people reading each novel twice (which I'm sure is a regular occurance!). Nevertheless, I think it would be a good indicator of the demographics of the forum.

I confess that I've been a fan of Terry's work for some time, but I've only read a few of his novels to date. That's something that I intend to rectify over the coming months!

Let's have your poll answers, and let me know if we can improve it in any way.

Thanks!

I am reading him for the first time and am currently on A Hat Full of Sky. So that's 32, but I have all the rest ready to read, plus the extras and most of Terry's other novels.

As far as I know, I've read everything that TP has ever published in book form. :P

If there's something I haven't read, I want to know what it is. :?

It looks like I'm going to be put to shame fairly quickly.

Ah well, I did make my own rod!

I've read all the main Discworld ones (I think), and the Tiffany ones, except the latest.

Haven't read Nation yet.

Read the Johnny/Bomb ones (got the DVD too!!).

Not keen on Strata/Dark Side of Whatsit.

Diggers are good fun.

Currently re-reading Thud, even though it's not one of my favourites.

Ah. Forgot about the Science ones. Couldn't get on with the science, so skipped to the story. Tee Hee!! :oops:
