I used to read a lot more novels, back when my life seemed to always have large blocks of discretionary time. Nowadays, it’s mostly non-fiction for me. At the advice of a friend, I decided to try a Terry Pratchett novel, from the “Discworld” series. I’m a little suspicious, since I’ve always shied away from cleverly funny science fiction or fantasy. Not sure why – the tone just tends to not appeal to me. A few pages in, I can see the appeal. If I can get myself converted, I could see many hours of enjoyable escapism ahead! We’ll have to see how it goes..
