My problem is, with any book series, I always want to read them chronologically, no matter the order they were published. I probably just need to find that sort of list online, but I'm intrigued to just pick up one of Pratchett's books and just gobble that sucker down with my eye mouths to see if I like the taste.

Haha! I read your mind ....... there's your list :tu:


Oh no, wait ...... what would be the difference between chronologically  and the order they were published in?

What, in all the world, could I do to earn my living and still live as myself, as I knew myself to be? Temporary masks, I knew, had their place; everyone was wearing them, they were the human rage; but not masks cemented in place until the wearer could not breathe and was eventually suffocated.

Captain Vimes(to himself), quote: "Little crimes breeding big crimes. You smile at little crimes and then big crimes blow your head off".
IMO, relating this to the modern real world, it hits the nail on the head ....... sadly.
