Leslie | 825 comments For Family and Self, how about Eugénie Grandet by Honore de Balzac?

For Sci Fi/Fantasy, I would like to read a Terry Pratchett DiscWorld book. I am open to suggestions about which one - I have read a few but there are lots!

Anyone have a suggestion on the Pratchett novel?? I was going to put the polls up soon, and if I don't hear, I'll just list it as the series and we'll pick one based on who has read what if it wins.

Leslie | 825 comments If no-one else has a suggestion, I'd like to read Wyrd Sisters...

I can add both Discworld books to the polls for this month so we can see what people want to read. hopefully people that vote for one of them would be also okay reading the others.

So I've never read a Discoworld and see that neither book is the first in the series. Are they standalone novels or will I need the background to read either one?

Oh, and polls are up.

Leslie | 825 comments I started reading the DiscWorld series because a friend recommended Hogfather to me ( which isn't a 'entry' book either). I didn't have any troubles enjoying it & it seems to me that though each subseries has continuing characters, enough background is given each time that they can be read as stand-alones. So unless you have a strong preference for reading series in order, I think you will be fine with either of them.

Thanks, Leslie. Good to know. I'll use my vote as a tie breaker for one of the discworld novels since I've already read Clockwork Orange.

Polls are up, guys!

We have a tie, guys! If you haven't voted, get in your pick!

Dennis Fischman (dfischman) | 129 comments Does anyone know how to get to the polls on an iPhone?

I don't use the app, but the webpage. I can get pills that way on Android so i assume iphone will be similar.
