Default Which one to read first?

Which one would be a good novel to start with if I haven't read any of them yet?

Or you could read them randomly, getting into the spirit of Quantum Leaping, where Sam randomly leaps from life to life.

I remember a book here or there connecting to the book that came before - might be something you'll miss or say "huh?" to if you read out of order. Might not be too bad, but I enjoyed them in order.

I've never actually read the books, so I would have no idea what order they are in, nor do I have a favorite. I think that was an example of a joke that backfired. The best bet would be to listen to someone who actually read the books.

I've read a number of them, and I didn't realize they had an order. So I've probably read them wildly out of order, and I haven't felt like I missed something. You might want to save "Mirror's Edge" for last because it is slightly related to "Mirror Image." The books aren't numbered, but the order is probably available on this site, if I know our bartender.

Start at top - left to right for the order.
