I should read more Terry Pratchett as I'm myself into laughing as well.

I've recently finished Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman, which I've been trying to finish for years. Packed with delightful characters.
Also began reading A Series of Unfortunate Events, and it's nice to be able to finish a book in a day (twelve to go).

Lately I've been enjoying non-fiction and learned a lot by reading Here, There and Everywhere. Geoff Emerick's book on his recollection of having recorded The Beatles and working with them.
I'm currently waiting for the arrival of the next non-fiction book, Christian Dior's autobiography, because I'm such a fashionable person.

And what else... oh, yes, I recently began reading Casino Royale by Ian Fleming. I always loved James Bond, but so far this doesn't seem to be quite what I expected. I've read several pages and I'm yet wondering where are all the explosions and shooting and sex. Instead, it reads like some sort of RPG, in which you are presented with literal documents "...and Bond received a dossier and since I don't know what else to write about I'm going to show you page by page everything that dossier contains..... PAGE 1". **** you Fleming! show me the fancy cars already!
But no, it's actually interesting and more believable than most of the movies.
