Read any good books lately? in Off-Topic Mayhem Posted October 21, 2010 I should read more Terry Pratchett as I'm myself into laughing as well. I just read The Colour of Magic for the first time recently. The scenes with the characters being confused by modern technology and terms was a lot of fun. I really like his narrative style. It's one of the better books I've read in a long time. I don't know what took me so long to read it in the first place. I'll definitely be checking out the rest of the Discworld series.
