Generally I usually find an author I like and read as many of their books as possible before moving on. However I never considered that their could be such a global wealth of stories to be found. I'm genuinely interested; if there is more out there off the well-trampled path let's hear it. I'm always up for some variety and unique stories.

I read SF and Fantasy, but I also like History and Social Science (Guns, Germs and Steel, Outliers, that sort of thing). Plus occasionally an old classic (I'm reading Kipling right now). I usually go in clumps too, reading one sort of thing for a while and then switching.
I also like Pennarin's approach of reading by recommendation, or recognized good books. Plus I occasionally re-read books I really enjoyed the first time around. There really doesn't seem to be time to read everything I'd like to read, so it's nice to have some way of identifying what's likely to be good.
