I've read some of the Edge Chronicles like someone else here, and I've also read that series with the population law....
I've recently finished the Sword of Truth series, but now am reading 'The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant The Unbeliever'
The thing is, every page I need to look up multiple words :L
Right now I'm reading The Grapes of Wrath, and although it's for school I'm actually enjoying it. I tend to find pleasure in reading classic novels that founded modern literature, for there are so many allusions to books in our daily life that are completely missed.
However, for general recreation I tend to be involved in Fantasy/Sci-Fi. The Inheritance Series is my current favorite, and right now I'm reading the Iron Elves series.
