Can someone PLEASE tell me the proper order of Terry Pratchett's Discworld series? I've started with Thud!, and while I quite enjoy it, I can't help but feel like I'm missing something...

The way I see it, you can do it two ways. You can read through them all in the order they were written:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Complete-Discworld-Series-in-order/lm/1EQYOGY1O25D7

Or you can read them in sets, following one set of characters at a time:

(That second list isn't totally up-to-date, but it's a start)

That second one also completely leaves out the Tiffany Aching books:
1) The Wee Free Men
2) A Hat Full of Sky
3) Wintersmith

And yeah, either way, Thud! is an odd place to start. It's an awesome book, but the Watch has changed quite a bit by that point.

I'll probably start at the beginning, haha. The list in the front of the books is no help, so I picked one that seemed like it made sense, which it obviously didn't.

Terry Pratchett doesn't seem to much care about what most people consider a "series", does he?

I adore Terry pratchett I have all but 3 of his books and I started with Wyrd sisters which was a good place to start, the death stories are the best although I love the wee free men series, his books are about the only books that make me laugh out loud when reading them!!! He tends to release a new one every year around christmas. I would read them in wrting order even though it skips from character to character that way but then you learn far more about the entire disc world.

I just finished Thud!, I quite like it, his writing is very funny! So writing order is a good way to go? I'll have to get a library card and start at the beginning then, haha!
