Personally I like actually have a book in my had. Plus reading text after text on a screen feels retarded. Like I'm an idiot, literally.

Going on a Star Wars comic kick; reading up on "Dark Times" and "Legacy". Also reading volume three of R A Salvatore's Dark Elf Trilogy.
"Legacy" sucks, in my opinion, and is pointed at the horny-twenty-something demographic. "Dark Times" is incredibly refreshing, by contrast, as its characters are highly diverse and developed, and really help inspire sympathy for the peoples of the galaxy as they are brought under the dark heel of the nascent Empire. "The Dark Elf Trilogy" is D&D based. At first I had little interest in it, but persisted and got enchanted half-way through the second volume, and aim to finish this arc of The Drizzt Legends.
I somewhat like Legacy. The art, save for one issue, is great. Personally, like I mentioned before... I'm a sucker for continuation type stories. Always wanting to know what happens next. And really... That's what keeps me on the issues.
I have one of the Drizzt novels as well. Couldn't bear to read it though. Got it a while ago, guess I wasn't in my reading-phase at the time. Maybe I'll finally open it up?
I'm only about half way through The Silmarillion, at The Return of the Noldor. Very good reading, but there's just so much to absorb the first time through. So I'm taking a little break and I'm re-reading the Coldfire Trilogy by C.S. Friedman- Dark Fantasy at its finest; some of my favorite stuff.
That I can agree on. The second time I read it I realized how much I missed. But then again, I really was quick-reading it the first time. I'm the what-happens-next kind of reader.
Still, I don't think there's anything better to immerse yourself in.
