You aren't.  One determined person gave me each new one as it came out in
hardback for some years, but I found I simply didn't read them and remember
them afterwards.  Eventually I gave them to a lad who is a severe Pratchett
fan and very poor, and found having the hardbacks a boon because they
didn't come apart so quickly as his paperbacks had.  I just checked and
there don't seem to be any left in the house at all, so I can't exactly
check any to see if I recognise a character or not.

Somebody once said that one of them, I think it was called *Pyramids*,
anyway it had a camel in it, owed a lot to a DWJ book of a couple of years
earlier, but I didn't happen to have a copy at the time to check that,
either.  Does anyone on the list have any feeling that this might have been
so?  And if so, which DWJ?
