I like reading history too.

Never read Tolkein surprisingly, but Eddings and Pratchett are my favourites. I have read all books of Eddings' Mallorean and Tamuli series, and all bar some of the latest novels of Pratchett's Discworld! Have you read Snuff yet? Its 3rd week on the top of bestsellers

Espionage is my favourite genre, with John Le Carre being my favourite author, the Cold War type George Smiley novels are simply epic, though others are great too. Another British spy novellist I'v relished reading is Graham Greene, Le Carre's writing style also seems inspired by Greene.
