West of January

This certainly isn't going to help my standing as a non-geek, but I'd like to recommend a book.

Buzz recently loaned me his copy of Dave Duncan's West of January, and I have to say it was an enjoyable and somewhat enlightening read, particularly when it all wraps up at the end. If you've ever speculated on how we got where we are now, or where we may end up, this is a good start, or, at least, one of many, in figuring it out.

Sounds interesting, so I ordered it for my husband, but no doubt I'll read it too. We like SF! :)

Then let me also recommend any of the Discworld books by Terry Pratchett.

Gracious, there's a lot of 'em. Is there an order to them, 1, 2, 3 sort of thing, or ... LOL Amazon isn't saying! :)

Kate, start with "Color of Magic" followed by "The Light Fantastic."

Then you can pretty much go anywhere.
