Sword of Truth and Wheel of Time the most! Also the Mistborn Trilogy I'm sure I'll like if I ever start it, and a dozen other trilogies and single titles that I can't think of atm!

I'm a non-Dragon Lance Tracy Hickman and Margaret Weis fan. I have a character named Kithcannon that people assume I picked the name up from Dragonlance but to be honest I never read it. ( Kith was a nickname of mine since the early 70's, it means family in either old scotts or celtic )
Darksword : First trilogy I ever read.
Rose of the prophet : real interesting mythos. Used it in a few games I ran.
Other authors:
Disk world
Hitchhikers guide to the universe

Hey Aziel, did you ever get around to reading that "The Law of Nines" by Goodkind yet? I'm thinking about starting it here soon.

No, not yet. One time I was looking for it in B&N and I couldn't find it. I was in a hurry so I didn't bother to check it with customer service. I'll try again soon when I find the time. :)

Well you could read factoid books. That's all I read now that I am trying to write my own books. ( I have enough of an over active imagination, I don't need another authors help :P) Schott's Miscellany is one of my favorites.. But if you really need an obscure series to read you could always read all of Edger Allan Poe's works or Steven Kings none horror book,maybe throw in some Homer. You know, stuff no one reads any more ( well other then maybe King :P ) I told my son to read Macbeth and Romeo and Juliet before he read Harry Potter. He asked me if he could just watch the dvd's..grumble.

Oh Steven King I never could get into, although his newest novel "The Dome" is it sounds interesting, but it was also picked up to be made into a TV show on HBO or maybe it was Starz...so I'll just wait for that instead!

I can only get myself to read fantasy novels. I love sci-fi shows but can't get myself to read a book on it. I'm sure there are some really good books out there, but if I'm not like 100% interested in something, reading it is a waste of time, oh and I enjoy reading cook books!

Its fun to see something that looks really good, but twist it into something slightly different to ones own preferences, is how I do most of my cooking...look at others creations then be like oh if I did this and that, I'd get ...... I'm very creative with food!

You have no choice to make someting to eat every day. might as well make it fun!

=D. The kids dont always love it but. lol

Im with you on this one.. I like doing that too.




I loved the Dune books and all the Drizzt series.

I loved the charackter devlopment in Salvators books. (most like him for the fight description.)

Its really sad its turned into suck a cash cow by now, but i do understand the need to pay rent.

The original 6 books are a must read in my opinion.



Dune... well Thats just not for everyone.

Never could get into Dune, nor have I read the Drizzt series. So many other things on my plate I doubt I'd ever have time even I wanted too.

I started reading Drizzt when i was mabe 13 or 14.
Befor he got well known. That was my ad&d phaze.

I gess i really related to Drizzt and his diffilculty's fiting into his world.

I dont think id identify with him so well at this stage of my life were I to read his books for the first time now.

Exact same books for me as well. Wheel of Time probably being my all time top favs, but a lot of others quickly follow behind it.
