Good Omens is my favourite Pratchett to date. Of the discworld books, I have a hard time choosing. There are none that I wouldn't reread, but there are about five or six that I reread frequently (every couple of years or so). I haven't gotten my hands on Monstrous Regiment or Going Postal yet -- I can't afford to buy them new and it takes ages for them to start appearing in libraries and second hand bookshops.

I have a friend who takes great pleasure in reminding me at every opportunity that his mother gets an autographed copy of every Pratchett the day it is published. For obvious reasons, those are not lent to anybody. Now where did I leave my ski mask and crowbar?

I'm reading "Monstrous Regiment" right now then will be on to "Hat Full of Sky" (which still isn't on the poll!) and then finish up with "Going Postal".

One question. Just what the heck is "swede" as in "swede eating"? I've noticed this used as an epithet many times in the Discworld books.

Then there's "slumpie"...

Since I haven't read anthing from Discworld, is there one that I need to start out with? I mean, do they have a certain order to them?

I'm reading Going Postal right now (yay for employee benefits at Waldenbooks! I get to borrow this book for free!). Funny book so far, and Captain Carrot made a cameo appearance! He hasn't been in a book since Night Watch, and even then it wasn't more than a cameo. I count Jingo as his last true appearance.

Of course, that means that the next pratchett book will probably center on the witches since he hasn't done one in a long time...
