1. Wyrd Sisters
2. Monstrous Regiment
3. Night Watch
4. Going Postal
5. Making Money.

Hi to both Dazman & Trish :)

Well I don't think I could possibly pick 5 favourites. But I do prefer the Watch & Witch books. I'm also partial to Small Gods.

You might as well ask me for my favourite Thornton's chocolate :laugh:

Hi Juan José and welcome to the site. :laugh:

Actually, I'd have suggested that you read Witches Abroad before Lords and Ladies (although it isn't essential) and L&L sort of continues where Witches Abroad left off.

Equal Rites was Terry's third Discworld book and the first with Granny Weatherwax - she is somewhat different in the later books.

You might want to check out Guards! Guards! as this is the first book in the City Watch series and is a great introduction to the city of Ankh-Morpork as well as the City Watch and the great Sam Vimes. ;)

I kind of envy you that you have so many great books still to read. :laugh:

In my opinion you should read Guards Guards as it's where you meet the watchfor the first time XX

Hello Tonyblack and Lance - Constable Rose.

:) Ohhh, thanks for the advise...In my country, it's hard to find the TP book you are looking for, and yesterday I was in the movies, watching Monsters vs Aliens in 3D, it was nice...And it was there, in a bookstore: "Feet of Clay"...so I bought it. And I will finish it very soon.
Thanks Tonyblack, I'll try to find that book, "Witches Abroad". :laugh:

The first 2 books I read were Moving Pictures and Mort and it got me hooked on the series, so i would recommend either :)

Don't usually "do" hardbacks, but when I read the outline of the story, I just had to have it! :laugh:
