    67. That entirely depends on if you live in a place where most bookstores and libraries will have the complete set.

    I highly doubt that any place near me does. :/ It's hard enough to find complete series like Maximum Ride, or even The Hunger Games.

      Eh. Even if the complete series is unavailable, it doesn't matter too much. Like I said, they all can pretty much be read as stand-alone books, so it's fine.

      Yeah, but then my OCD will kick in and I'll have to shoot myself for reading it out of order, even if the way it's written does not require me to do so.

        Oh, I never said I wouldn't read it. I just said I'd have to read it in order.
        Don't doubt the power of my reading skillz. ._.

          73. Mm, but you were saying that you'd have to find them all in order and you probably would not have access to them?

          There is always a way, my friend. There is always a way! (Just depends on whether or not you're too lazy to find it, lol.)

            75. Most wouldn't go to such lengths for a series they knew nothing of.

            By the way, despite your own intentions, I recommend not starting with the first of the entire series. I recommend starting at the beginning of a different character arc and reading chronologically through that, and then doing the same for the rest, and getting the stand alone books somewhere in there. Because starting with the actual first novel is... odd. Hard to get hooked on, because at that point Pratchett hadn't quite gotten the world and style sorted out. It's hard to follow and that tends to put people off.

            So I'd say not to begin with The Colour Of Magic. Instead go with Guards! Guards!

            Well, I myself am a writer, and I'll go further for literature than some people . . . lol.

            I honestly think that's the first time someone told me not to start with the first book in a series.
            Well then, I'll try that.

              77. Yeahh... Discworld's a bit odd that way.

              Here's a helpful chart thing if you want. It's a bit confusing but kind of gives you a sense of a good reading order.

                Pratchett is brilliant. If only it wasn't 3am I'd love to stay and chat about his work.

                  YAY another Pratchett fan! :D

                  But if it's 3am then you should be going to sleep. Plenty of time to talk some other day. :3

                  I would give Discworld a try, but my backlog is huge. I have some Dragonlance books to finish, some Resident Evil novels, my Ayn Rand collection, and Battle Royale.

                          86 idk I'm looking forward to it but I'm not that excited right now. I've got other things to think about. Like how the hell I'm going to afford a 3DS and the game.

                          I restarted White cause I was gonna replay in in preparation for B/W2, but never did so I've been in Striaton city for ages and now I regret starting over :(

                            Reminds me of the time I tried to restart SoulSilver. I got about halfway through, but then realised I was underlevelled. I couldn't be bothered grinding, so I guess I just sorta stopped. xD;
                            I should pick it up again, though. Leaving it hanging makes me feel weird.

                            I just realized I haven't played Pokemon at all this past Winter break. Oh well, there's other times for that. Have a huge backlog of replays to do. Although I want the Legendary event Pokes. ;;
