any Discworld fans out there?
I was just curious. I got hooked on Pratchett's Discworld series back in '07. it was just a couple years after Thud! had come out. I picked up a copy at a local Barnes and Noble where i lived at the time, read it over the weekend, came back the following week and grabbed a basket and took every copy of every Discworld book I could get my hands on. it must have been almost 30 books. I've been hooked ever since. i don't own any of the science of discworld or discworld companions. i just have the regular series plus the tiffany aching stuff for young adults. at this point i'm completely biased to Sam Vimes and the City Watch because in them I see a lot of comparisons to the work i've done in both military and civilian security ( but i'm not a copper =P). i reread them most often and at times it feels like i'm getting together with old friends to chew the fat. the Discworld is a fantastic world and if you haven't read them i would highly recommended it. the humor is spot on and the stories addicting (particularly Ankh-Morpork's City Watch, if you haven't noticed from my rant =P)
