I had read a book or two by Pratchett in the past and thought he was just ok. Because of that experience I never bothered to even try the Discworld books figuring Pratchett was just not for me. But, the way so many of you praise the series, you wore me down. I bought The Color of Magic. I am just about done and I am loving it. I cannot say enough good things. It’s cute and clever and a fun read (and I understand that it only gets better from here).
I know this question has been asked before, but I think it’s been a while, so I am asking again :p. In your opinion, what is the best order to read them? Should I go in publishing order, read them by series, or just read whatever seems to tickle my fancy at the time I am in the bookstore?
I also bought Going Postal at the same time I bought The Color of Magic just because I liked the premise. Can I read that next or would that be too confusing because it’s so far down the line and I would have missed too much?
I will be at the bookstore sometime this weekend and I am going to pick up The Light Fantastic, because that’s next in both publishing order and in the Rincewind series so I figure I can’t go wrong there. But what should come after that?
