It's always a little strange to see how other people experience a book, especially when it's so different from your own experience. Some of the quotes were things I wouldn't have picked myself, but they still made me want to go back through Discworld one more time.

This is a like a "Coming Attractions" reel for Terry Pratchett's Discworld series. If you haven't read any of the novels, this may entice you into the Discworld. If you have, you'll probably want to reread your favorites.
