Right now I'm reading all of the SW books I can find (except for the young readers stuff). I've been "forced" to read some of the Dark Horse comics since some of them fall in between books and you have to read them to keep from scratching your head. Looking forward to the Plageuis book coming out soon.
I'm also a big Star Trek novel fan, specifically the Peter David novels.
I've read most of the John Grisham novels but stopped around "Playing for Pizza"
I've read all of the Vince Flynn novels and I'm looking forward to his latest book. Praying for the guy too, only ~45 and battling pretty severe prostate cancer.
Read the Dan Brown novels. Got caught up in them but there's not a huge body of work to really delve in to

I've read all the Harry Potter books, The Hobbit and all the Lord of the Rings. Interview with a Vampire up the Memnoch the Devil. About a year and half ago I started reading all the Star Wars novels. I started from the beginning with the Bane series and went in order from there. The last one I read was Shatter point. One gains a new respect for Mace after reading that book. I also read the Jedi path. There are other books, they just weren't in a series like the one's I've listed. Oh, Cabal by Clive Barker that book was some much better than the movie Night Breed. I still think Nightbreed was an awesome movie. Dragonlance: Dragons of Autum Twilight.

I started Revan... read about the first 100ish pages or so at a Barnes & Noble when I had some free time. Excellent so far, not as good as his Bane books, but still very good. I think you'll enjoy it...
Right now I'm reading The Tehran Initiative, it's the sequel to Joel Rosenberg's "The Twelfth Imam." I read his other series (The Last Jihad, The Copper Scroll, The Ezekiel Option, etc) and really enjoyed them. The Twelfth Imam was a gift from my Dad, he called me and said he had a meeting with Rosenberg and after telling him how jealous I was, he sent me a signed copy of his latest book. It's too political for my taste, but very well written, and has some great action writing as well.

I have never read the bible from cover to cover, just bits and pieces from all over. It's probably the one book I grab from the shelf at time to times. The other books I might read are the cooking books. Otherwise I dont read that much books nowadays. I do so much reading over the internet. The last book I read was the 1000 movies that everyone should see. The greatest book experience was the Lotr trilogy and Hobbit. I dont really care for the Lotr movies. With Star Wars it's the opposite, I love the movies, but don't care for the books.

Piers Anthony, Weiss and Hickman Dragonlance, and Steinbeck was what I started with in middle school.
I read a bit more in high school, sci-fi and all.
In undergrad, I really got into Ray Bradbury, Asimov, and other sci-fi, as well as Brit Lit (romantics, victorians), and some american lit.
In grad school, I got to take a 700 level sci-fi seminar, which was quite splendid. Started reading Harry Potter then too.
After grad school, I so loathed reading that I've not read much other than the newspaper. Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Orson Scott Card, and some other sci-fi are the standard. I've never read any of the SW novels though. mmm

I'm not much of a reader but I did just read two awesome books. They are autobiographies of two WWII pilots.
Unbroken- about a pilot that survived a water ditching, 47 days in a 6' lifer aft with two other guys only to hit land that turns out to be a japanese concentration camp. Two years of torture followed. Great book all around.
Split Second From Hell- Published in the 70's. The story of Curly from the Black Sheep Squadron. It's a hilarious book chronicling his adventures from fighter pilot in the Corsair to flying as a missionary pilot decades later in the jungles of Peru. Both were well worth the read.
