The Lord of the Rings
-The Fellowship of the Ring
-The Two Towers
-The Return of the King
The Silmarillion
The Children of Hurin
Unfinished Tales
The History of Middle Earth
-The Book of Lost Tales Part 1
-The Book of Lost Tales Part 2
-The Lays of Beleriand
-The Shaping of Middle-earth
-The Lost Road and Other Writings
-The Return of the Shadow
-The Treason of Isengard
-The War of the Ring
-Sauron Defeated
-Morgoth's Ring
-The War of the Jewels

Now I shall start the two volume History of the Hobbit when I feel like reading again.  ;)

comrade, you have a stronger reading will than I will ever have. I don't think I got past TRotK.

What about the other series by Conn Iggulden, the one about Gangis Khan. I've read almost all of them (1-4 not book 5 yet got too stuck into the Emperor Series. Great books).

I read Beasts in my Belfry by Gerald Durrell recently. If you have any love of animals his books are a must, brilliantly funny in the older and more genteel sense of the word and pretty heartwarming too. Also I'm currently reading The Far Pavilions, which is a stunning epic set in India maybe 20 years after the Mutiny.

40K is just a ***t universe for stories. It's TOO dark, so everything just feels broken.

Blood on the Reik is a very interesting book... It's a bit short and it's full of drawings (which are the best part of the book actually)...
It's a must for every WHF fan...
