If you're looking for a series to read, I can highly recommend Wilbur Smith's Egyptian Series. I can also highly recommend the Earth's Children series by Jean M. Auel.
If you prefer the fantasy genre, I can recommend the The Obsidian Trilogy by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory(the following trilogy in the same universe is recommendable as well). I can also recommend the Wheel of Time series, the Night Angel trilogy, or the Death Gate Cycle.
For Sci-Fi, I would recommend the Ender series by Orson Scott Card, or the Foundation stories by Isaac Asimov(starting with the Foundation Trilogy, followed by Foundation And Empire, and The Second Foundation.)
If you are looking for fast paced action, I recommend anything by Matthew Reilly(Contest, and Temple, especially are brilliant.)
I can also recommend pretty much anything by Jack L. Chalker(a brilliant Fantasy writer, his Soul Rider series still has a special place for me) or Dean Koontz.
I can probably come up with a ton of other recommendations once I actually look through my books, but these are the best off the top of my head(not including the obvious "must read" books, like Dune.)
And yes, I read a lot.
