Discworld Novels by Terry Pratchett are a great, fun read if you like humor and fantasy.
I came across the first one years ago:
(The Colo(u)r of Magic)
and I loved it.
The second book
(The Light Fantastic)
was equally enjoyable, but after that the series begins to follow new characters who may reappear from time to time throughout the 36 book (and still growing) series. Now, being a slow reader, I only got through the first five books, but the entire series looks promising. If you're looking for a good fantasy read, check these books out.
