Is mind-control just another side effect of this RECKONING?

Given these two clues, I have a hunch that I might be involved in one other thread besides "Time" that won't be perturbed as much as the average thread.

Assuming you restrict yourself to the Discworld novels only, you have just over 4 hours per book, less if you want to sleep...

Should be doable: read fast!

Step 1) Watch Dr. Who and read Discworld simultaneously all week.

Step 2) Collapse from exhaustion.

Step 3) Record the resulting dreams/hallucinations.

Step 4) Sell as surreal crossover fanfic

Step 5) Profit

whilst the exhaustion hallucination fanfic would be gold I'm sure, you certainly could polish off a couple of discworld books during the madness without too much trouble. The death series is good fun but, alas, doesn't feature the nac mac feegle.

Well, I actually read several of the Town Watch books, five or six of them. Enjoyed it immensely, but eventually it felt like it began to repeat itself to some extent. I was also reading Czech translation which I hated, even though I believe it's quite acclaimed. I kept telling myself I should give Discworld another chance in a couple of years and read it in English, but I never got around to it.

If you want something totally different to the Watch books, you could do worse than try Thief of Time (it's one of my favourites). That sense of slight repetition is why I tend to recommend people mix up the different series as they read them.

I'm going to re-read thief of time myself, and I'm stuck between Interesting Times, Monstrous Regiment and Feet of Clay for a second one (just ones that jumped out at me scanning through my "Pratchett shelf"). Help me choose?

I guess it's time I gave it another try. I wasn't kidding about Dr. Who though. I fear that I start reading Discworld, it will take me more than the expected 2-3 years to watch all of it. =P
