Good for a chuckle.

Does the summer heat have you down? Does driving in traffic make your innards tie themselves in knots. Does the rat race make you want to chew your arm off? Well, if you answered "Yes" to any of these questions, I may have the books for you. The writer Terry Pratchett started writing his Discworld series in the early 80s. The Discworld is an improbable world carried by four elephants on the back of a giant turtle swimming through space. It is filled with inept wizards and dodgy magic. The books (about 40 now) follow various stories of the inhabitants of the Discworld. Not all of the book have the some characters, but they are charming and funny in a "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" kind of way.
If you're up for a good read, and a laugh or two, pick one up.
