How many misogynists does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

Not ALL of them.

Gosh, I used to have so many concrete opinions on what order to read Terry Pratchett books in and now I’m so indecisive.

Hmm, should they read The Truth first so they recognize the cameo or should they just skip straight for Monstrous Regiment cause it’s so good? Should they go through all the…

Well, I started with the Truckers / Diggers / Wings trilogy, also known as The Bromeliad. Just by accident.

And then I just went on in chronological order from The Colour of Magic etc. And even though the first two in the Discworld series are kind of ‘trying too much’, they set the stage for anything to come after them.

But that might be considered a purist way, or a road less travelled, a narrow gateway, lol.

I’ve known too many people who read Rincewind and got bored to start anyone there. My goal is to get them hooked enough that they’ll eventually want to go back and read Rincewind. Rincewind is funny, but it doesn’t have the same depth as some of the others.

small gods still may very well be my favorite discworld book of all

Small Gods is a VERY good book.

Logan refused to grant me a library card because it wasn’t my name on the utility bill so I had very limited access

I will mail you my copies if that’s what it takes.

uhh you started me off with Small Gods are you saying I’m not a feminist or I don’t like female characters I’m hurt
I say that but I also really really enjoy the occasional power-hungry ecclesiastical villain so

The alternate starting point is a new thing. Back in the day I used to start everyone off with Small Gods.

You still need to read more, though. Read Monstrous Regiment, Diana.

it’s weird that the target audience for Word Crimes is still as big as it is

i always forget that for everyone who outgrows their Correcting Other Peoples’ Grammar phase there’s someone who is just arriving in it and/or carrying it into adulthood

HIS NAME IS NOT SHAZAM…..

I KNOW

Except that I’m still not okay with them actually changing his name to Shazam. He’s Captain Marvel, dang it.
