21. The Other Boleyn Girl, by Philippa Gregory. Reread. One of her best. A.
22. The Boleyn Inheritance, by Philippa Gregory. Pretty good. Told the tale of Henry VIII's lesser-known wives, and did a good job. History books understate how scary a time that really was. I liked this one better than The Virgin Queen. A-
23. Good Omens, by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. This was on a recommendation from troglodyteking. It was interesting, intelligent, and absolutely hilarious. This is the way I would write if I could choose. It's a bit Douglas Adams-ish, but less absurd. I loved it. A
24. Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith, by Jon Krakauer. This was about the Mormon religion in general (history and present), and a fundamentalist murder case in particular. I didn't know Mormons had such a bloody past. Very interesting and well written. It's very much like Into Thin Air in that the narrative is gripping enough that you don't want to stop reading it. Mind you, it's not sensationalized. Anyone interested in learning more about America's home-grown religion should pick this up. A

I need some advice from people in the Duneiverse. I love Dune passionately (the book, not the movies), and I want to read more of the story, but at the same time, I don't want to wreck my enjoyment of the first book. If anyone's read the series, can they give me advice on where I should stop to preserve my innocence? I want to avoid this.
