Wheel of Time unless the series has to be finished then it is Lord of the Rings.

I hate being cliched but really, is this even a competition? The grandfather of modern fantasy, J.R.R Tolkien. Everything else is just a copy.

P.S.
(Doesn't mean I don't read anything else, does Dune count?)

It is said that the guttural sound of Dwarfs bellowing Grungni’s name is enough to make an Elf’s knees knock and a Goblin turn a sickly shade of yellow!

Weis and Hickman's Dragonlance. Chronicles trilogy in particular but I like most all of the other trilogies/series set on Krynn. Wanted to meet both of them after reading Chronicles in high school in 1994 and finally got to meet them at DragonCon in 2004.
