You can start and finish this challenge whenever you like!

The Discworld is the fictional setting of Terry Pratchett’s most iconic series. All the Discworld novels take place on a flat, circular world which sits on the back of four elephants, which stand on the back of a giant star turtle. Although this world may look and sound completely different to our own, the Discworld novels explore a multitude of very human issues.

Below, you’ll find all 41 Discworld novels in the order they were published. The Discworld novels can be read in any order so just pick up a book and join me on this quest! 

I will be documenting my progress on my Instagram page @reading_this_book_today, if you want some company 😅
