    I see that MC has finally finished The Colour OF Magic. If I may recommend, try Going Postal by Pratchett.

    I read Going Postal at the beginning of this year, actually - it's what really got me into Prachett. Thanks for the recommendation, though (all three of them :D ) Is there another Prachett that you think to be particularly good - I'm thinking of reading Guards, Guards next
