I liked Melanie Rawn's stuff too. Currently working on finishing up the 14 volume Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan (finished by Brandon Sanderson, after Jordan passed away). Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series - another mega-volume series Nancy Springer - her Book of Suns series is what got me started reading as a kid... I still love them, even if they are "young adult" quick reads. Anne McCaffrey's Dragon Books Harry Potter Alexandre Dumas (Three Musketeers, Count of Monte Cristo, etc) Victor Hugo (Hunchback of Notre Dame, Les Miz [I read it BEFORE it hit the stage], etc.) and Bunches of others.... I love the Kindle app - and the Nook app. I have both on my phone, tablet, PC and now Surface, just so I'm NEVER without a book to read!
