Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series contains over 30 novels, but they are not all dedicated to a single story arc. Instead, they are made up of several story arcs that follow particular characters, locations and situations. The Tiffany Aching story arc, for example, follows the adventures of a young, up-and-coming witch, and first begins with the 30th novel, meaning that you need not have read any of the previous books in order to fully understand the Tiffany Aching story arc.

Reading each story arc in the correct order, however, is important. This is because even though each novel is generally self contained, events that occur in later books may depend on events that occurred earlier in the same story arc in a previous book. Occasionally some of the main characters of one book may also make a cameo appearance in another book where they are not the primary focus; for example, Captain Carrot and Sergeant Angua appear briefly in Going Postal. Some novels in the Discworld series are stand-alone novels which don’t belong in any particular story arc, and can be read in any order. Below is a list of all the main story arcs and the order in which the books should be read, with the earlier books appearing at the top of each section, and the later ones at the bottom.
