If you are reading the Vorkosigan series and want to know what book to start with, there are two sort of "starting books" that I would suggest: one is "Shards of Honor" because it tells you how Cordelia and Aral met, and the other is "The Warrior's Apprentice" because it is the earliest of the Miles Vorkosigan books, the first one with him as the main character. It was the first one I read, and I think it serves as a good introduction to the series, even if some later-written books are better. I think some of the enjoyment of later books is increased by knowing more of the background, knowing what has gone before. But then, I like reading things in order.
