I second Tom Dale Keever's nomination of "Wyrd Sisters" as a great
read.  After reading it, might I also recommend the animated series
based on the work, which originally aired in Britain and is now
available on VHS and DVD.  Among others, it features the talents of
Chris Lee and Jane Horrocks (_Little Voice_).

I also recommend Pratchett's and Neil Gaiman's _Good Omens_, a hilarious
book on Armaggeddon (yes, I just wrote that).  It includes a footnoted
reference to the "Lost Quarto" of Shakespeare.

I second Tom Dale Keever's recommendation of "Wyrd Sisters" (where the
answer to "When shall we three meet again..." is "Well, I can do next
Tuesday"). One could do much worse than to spend the summer on
Discworld.
