Dad has recommended that I do read Mort after I finish reading Color of magic. =)
Most of them can be read as individual novels, The Light Fantastic follows directly on from The Colour of Magic.

It does pay to sort of follow a chronological order because many of the later books assume prior knowledge of what happened in the earlier ones.

Yeah, that is what my dad said but he also said that the 40 books (?) are also linked with each other, so I guess if I like all the books at the moment, I will try to read all of them. Challenge accepted.=D

I should also mention, there's one more book that never gets included in the list of Discworld novels, but it very much is a discworld novel and should be included in the earlier sets. It's called Strata.

I'm just over halfway through, but this is one of the most brutal, insightful books I've read. It's rare to find a book that's almost too real, and can display its power so casually.

Stoner
I have that on kindle, but it didn’t grab me. Maybe I’ll give it another go.

I'm reading Don’t call it Night by Amos Oz.

Buddenbrooks


I just started Buddenbrooks by Thomas Mann. It's the first novel of his that I've tried, and so far I enjoy it. He seems to be a very potent, subtle writer with great self-control, so I look forward to reading the rest.

I'm waiting for these in the mail:

Culture and Anarchy by Matthew Arnold (Cambridge edition)
The Wonderful Adventures of Mrs. Seacole in Many Lands by Mary Seacole (a narrative by Creole nurse during the Crimean War)
The Years and Simple Passion by Annie Erneaux (memoirs which appear to have that impersonal style Orwell valued so much, and which I love too)

Well, this was not what I hoped it would be. Must try something else.
