Continued on my second lap through Terry Pratchett’s Discworld books, which is both comfort food and interesting to watch his dramatic improvements as a writer and, in the future, the beginning of Alzheimer’s impacting his work. The last book I read this year, his novel The Truth, is a high water mark in both his writing ability and also a really great book about the newspaper business and the act of journalism. Even for people who don’t like fantasy novels, it’s a good book to pick up. (His earlier book, Small Gods, is also an excellent standalone book on religion.)
