Finished Elantris. Had to read the last third in one sitting because I simply couldn't stop. Luckily it was Saturday night when I did that. Recommended.

Probably going to pick up Barry Hughart's The Story of the Stone next, which is a follow-up to Bridge of Birds.

There's another series, however, which I have never really read as far as I can recall: David Eddings' The Belgariad (and the Malloreon). I might have tried the first book, Pawn of Prophecy, about 15 years ago, but don't think I ever finished. Anyway: Which reading order would you guys recommend? There are two prequels to the main series, Belgarath the Sorcerer and Polgara the Sorceress — should I read them before the Belgariad (chronological order) or after the Malloreon (published order)?
