Terry Pratchett, Interesting Times. One last fun book leftover from Christmas. Actually, I think it was my least favorite discworld book so far (which is to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it)- Rincewind isn't my favorite wizard and the Counterweight continent doesn't hold a candle to Ankh-Morpork.
Alan Zweibel, The Other Shulman. Shulman is your middle aged faintly whiny guy who's just realized he's no longer a promising young man; he's a familiar character, which actually makes the fact that he has an evil double pretty funny. Shulman's lost (and gained) enough weight over his life to make a second person and that person has decided to ruin his life. There are some hilarious moments as Shulman clomps along in training to shamble through a marathon, and his love of stationary is genuinely endearing.
