    All of the books in the Belgariad, the Maloren (I think) and thre other David / Leight Eddings books.
    Shaman's Crossing - Robin Hobb (again)
    Forest Mage - Robin Hobb
    The Sharpe's books look ok, from what I've seen/heard, so them
    His Dark Materials - Philip Pullman (again), even though Northern Lights bores me :/
    The books that follow on from Harry Turtledove - Into The Darkness

    That's all I can think of at the moment...

    Reading the first Wheel of Time book now (enjoying it thus far), so the rest of them afterward.

    And after that, I'll probably delve in to the works of Hobb, Feist, and Brooks, to name a few. May re-read ASoIaF.

    When I've finished HP & & tHBP I'm gonna read Robin Hobb's Farseer Trilogy and then may think about reading A Song of Ice and Fire cos I've seen a lot of people mention it and I'm curious about it!
