I'd say Mort; its the 1st one I read, and still Terry's best IMO :)

Got all the books in paperback & hardback as well from Nightwatch on.

My favourite book of the more recent I have to say is Going Postal. :) Thought Terry was right back to form on that one - others were a bit dark. No real favourite one over all.
Yes it will be in this brown envelope, I know it will.... Oh maybe not

I think you have to go a long way to beat Night Watch. Other than that, and very controversial - how about Small Gods. Most people hate it buts it's always done the business for me

Small Gods was my first book and introduced me to the world of disc, bought it at a motorway service station, hadn't even heard of TP until then. Its a great book as are they all, you never forget your first lol

I have all the books in hardback although I will soon have to replace my copy of Guards Guards, it started falling apart over a year ago, unfortunately on this side of the pond it's rather difficult to find hardback copies of the earlier books and I prefer to save my purchasing from England for new Pratchett items, like Discworld stamps :D

Personally I like hardbacks the best because I reread things so much they tend to fall apart and hardbacks last longer than paperbacks.

My first book was 'The Fifth Elephant' and by the end of the next month I had bought and read all the Discworld novels that had been published to date.
