Different genre of fantasy, but these are great
Brent Weeks series (Black Prism & The way of shadows)
Scott Lynch - the lies of Locke Lamora series
Anthony Ryan - Blood Song series

ASOIAF goes without saying.

I'm the same way, but I usually just go right for the hardcover if the topic is a theme I already have started.

Enjoy it, that was my favorite of the series. It goes downhill after book 4 IMO.

Indeed. And don't bother with the movie, total let down.

If you guys haven't read the Remembrance of Earth's Past trilogy by Liu Cixin I cannot recommend it enough. The Three-Body Problem starts off a bit slow but it's worth it. The Dark Forest and Death's End were the best sci-fi I can remember reading.

"Does anyone read books still?"

I'm usually pretty still while reading, since I'm not coordinated enough to walk around and read at the same time.
