A few suggestions to be getting on with. Thanks everyone. Not sure about Harry Potter though perhaps i should just read them anyway. Is it absolutely necessary to start at the beginning 'cos i get the impression they get better from Book 3 onwards? A long awaited re-read of Ulysses is on the agenda - just need to pluck up the courage to actually do it!

Well, the thing about Harry Potter is that yes, it reaches its peak with the 3rd and 4th books, but not to read the first two would mean missing out on some of the previous plot, as well as the major elements of the story. The main characters we get to know through the first two books, and they aren't that difficult that they'll be a chore to read. I mean to say...they're pretty quick, can be read in a day or so, so I'd definitely suggest reading them at the very beginning.

Hope this helps!
