Note that it's a repeat,

I loved that book. She's also written under the name Sarah Monette.

Guards, Guards! by Terry Pratchett is just £0.99 in today's Kindle Daily Deal.

Despite being the eighth in his Discworld series, it's the first to feature Sam Vimes of the Night Watch, and a good place to start. (Unless you're fanatical about reading series in publication order.)
I'm going to disagree about this being a good place to start. The best place to start with Discworld is at the beginning and read in published (also chronological) order.

Personally, I loathed the early Rincewind books, which is what you'll start with by starting with The Colour of Magic. As a result, I dumped the series in the late 80s and didn't go back to it until the mid 2000s. I'm slowly picking up the ebooks at 99p; and I'm prepared to wait for them.

It really depends on your taste; I'm happy just to have the City Watch books and keep them, the rest (as far as I am concerned) can be left to one side.

Clearly my disclaimer wasn't bold or big enough to ward you off. Let me repeat it here, bigger and bolder

I wouldn't say loathe, but the first few books are quite different to the rest of the series, he really hadn't found his style.
Discworld really isn't a series of books, it is multiple series set in the same universe.
I like most of the books, but the City Watch series is my favourite, and I would also recommend starting there.

I wasn't going to start this discussion again, but I also read the first few book when they came out, and decided they weren't for me. Too banal. I picked up one of the Guards series ( Clay Feet ) and immediately started into that sub-series and loved it. Started giving away copies, etc.

So I also do NOT advise going chronologically.
