Q for Q: With the launch of Cata I managed to get my girlfriend to play WoW and she's been hooked since. She is also a big reader but isn't familiar with alot of the Warcraft lore. I was curious to know if the WoW books are approachable for someone with very limited lore knowledge or do they assume you know all the major players?

Most of the books are pretty easy to get into. If she's just into cataclysm lore, The Shattering and Thrall:TotA would be good ones. I haven't read any of the other books except Arthas, sunwell trilogy, and the dk book, so I can't say much about those, except people dislike knaaks writing.

Oops, I replied to the wrong comment. But I was also going to reply to you.I think WoWpedia.org is great for getting a quick introduction to the lore. I could see someone who is not already familiar with Warcraft lore getting confused or overwhelmed if they pick up a novel.

What Shinae said (which seems to be becoming my catchphrase :p) - wowpedia is good for catching up on lore, from a starting point of her choosing. It's also well-written, for a fan wiki.
