That's the first post in this forum in almost a month!

And it was I who last posted here.

I'm so proud of myself.

I'll more likely get 'Where's My Cow'  :)
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

I heard that Thud! was supposed to be really great. It's hard to keep up with all of his books, I have them all, but I just don't have the time to read them all. Every couple of years I pick them up, read a few, and then stop.

Any ideas as to which Discworld books are the "best" so that I can just read the better ones?

I'm almost finished with Reaper Man too. Have you ever wondered what would happen if DEATH retired? (This is DEATH the Grim Reaper not the state of not being alive.)

'Moving pictures' is brilliant
I would also say: Lords and Ladies, Maskerade, the last continent and Hogfather. It seems to me the books have entered a sort of 'third phase' they started as kind of generic fantasy, then they got really unique, I dont know where theyre going now but they seem to be getting much less lighthearted. Thud! is pretty good but... I dunno

I have Thud! and i'll get Where's my cow when i see it, but to be honest there are so many great discworld books released so long before i started reading them i mostly rent them from the library... well now ive read them all so i can no longer indulge in that pleasure.

All the Watch books are good. I also really like the "unique" books like Pyrimids, Moving Pictures, The Truth, and Going Postal. Those last two are probably my favorites. It helps if you read the books in the order they are published, especially the ones that take place in Ahnk-Morpork, because the city changes and concepts get carried from book to book. With the Watch books reading them in order let's you understand the background stories of all the characters as they join up. The Rincewind books need to be read in order too, but they don't really have an effect on the rest of the books. Same thing with DEATH and the Witches.

Isn't Where's My Cow the book Vimes reads his son? Do they have the Vime's Street Version in it too, that was hilarious.
"There is a man in the street he goes 'Millenium hand and shrimp!' is that my dad? No, that's not your dad, that's Foul Ole Ron"
-Just like Gaming Steve all of my ideas, suggestions, and comments are merely edjucated guesses. These are based on prior experience and current released info.-

Id say Small Gods since its not part of any of his series or Good Omens (by both Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett)
