Delightful light reading

Strange to say, the supply of truly delightful light reading in the world is NOT infinite, so I have been very lucky to have within the last couple days the final installment of Stieg Larsson's trilogy, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (very good, but not as much character-driven stuff as the previous books; still a page-turner, though), and Terry Pratchett's Unseen Academicals - more of a sport-related novel than an academic novel, truly, but very delightful to me nonetheless! (The closing pages, describing the culminating "football" match, are almost as pleasing to me as the stories of Caymanian sports journalist Ron Shillingford!)
