Terry Pratchett’s "Discworld" series can be absolutely daunting with 41 novels written over the course of 32 years. If you're a fan of odd British humor, fantastically imaginative worlds, and a sprinkling of social commentary, then the Discworld may be your cup of tea. Though, with the amount of material that it offers, it may be more like a bucket of tea.

Discworld has many story arcs and it can be confusing to figure out where to start your journey. Though it's claimed that you can enjoy the any of the stories in isolation, there are definitely call backs to other bits of lore and characters throughout the series that make a little more sense if you start from the below list. This list contains only the first books from the different arcs of the series and in chronological publication order from top to bottom if that is more your speed.
