Yes, I'm an avid fantasy reader.
Robert Jordan-Knife of Dreams 2nd time thru currently. Just finished "Phantom" for the second time. After RJ, will re-read Sara's last. I do like these three writers. They are similar in styles. I hope Mr. Jordan's health allows him to finish the Wheel of Time series. I'd hate to have another finish his work (like Tolkien).

Another fun series is by Steven Donaldson-Thomas Covenant Cronicles and David Eddings has a good series. I do enjoy Tom Clancey too.

I am starting Rick Warren's "The Purpose Driven Life" this weekend.

Wow, about time somebody has a thread about my other intereset

Last month, I just finished the last available book in the series by James Rollins - Black Order. All very nice books in this series, I especially love the new main characters of Sigma.

That's my favourite historical/scientific action/adventure series. Very interesting in the way all the facts in the books are real, yet some conclusions drawn are obviously fiction. Nice action-packed read.

By far, the BEST author ever goes to Kelley Armstrong with her absolutely brilliant Otherworld series, which of course I have every copy of, plus prints of all of her online fiction. The last book, No Humans Involved, is incredible as always.

I would strongly recommend reading her online fiction, available free on her site. For the extra-quick teaser, check out her short stores (Menu is: Otherword->Online Fiction->2005 Stories) for just a hint of how nice she writes.

It's all supernatural fiction, but just the writing style makes her so easy and interesting to read, it's scary. I kid you not, I couldn't put her books down and a couple of them simply finished within a few days by just reading until 4am.

Now I'm on to the last book by Kim Harrison, titled For A Few Demons More, again, it's supernatural fiction and although not as captivating as Armstrong, it's an enjoyable read.

Nice to have a little escapism from the hectic real life, isn't it.
