That is so funny. I just picked up moving pictures saturday at our local library booksale.

I was surprised to see it as a recommend starter book. I didn't realise it was one of the early books. Probably something to do with it being one of the later books at the time I read it :-)

I want to recommend a discworld book for our bookclub, but I don't know which one to pick. My top contenders are Colour of Magic, Equal Rites or Guards, Guards!

Guards, Guards is my rec. COM is good, but not great, and Equal Rites is the same. If you wanna hook 'em, go with the Watch.

I'd pick Guards! Guards! Well, depends on the group, but iirc it's not -too- heavy on magic-as-plot (unpopular in 'grown up' groups :-) ) and Vimes is an excellent character for discussing.
