I haven't started Proust yet, Patricia. People keep putting barriers (that is, other books) in my way.

LOTR is my favourite "epic" too, astra. I read it at least once a year. Shame it's not available as a legal eBook .

For the life of me, I couldn't think of one, completely forgetting the first (as in, first "serious" books I ever read). Yes, LotR for me too.

My copy of the OED For The Common Man which I carry in my head is getting a bit long of tooth (if I don't know the meaning of a word, I make one up).
Spoken like a true American.

I hope by the time I am ready to re-read it again, probably in 2-3 years, it(legal ebook version) will be available.

(Although I would not hesitate to use darknet version because I am owning..let me count...5 different versions of LOTR. Plus one paperback is donated to Oxfam)

last but not least

Ok,

Gotta say the Terry Goodkind Sword of Truth series is an Epic... some of those books were huge in their own right.

Anthony Powell's 'A Dance to the Music of Time'. Twelve novels in four "Movements". I started reading in the early- or mid-fifties, and had to wait until each new novel would come out and appear at my local Free Carnegie Library (the city library). I don't believe they are in ebooks.

For epic fantasy I'd say LotR, Martin's Song of Ice & Fire and Erickson's Malazan Books of the Fallen, are some of my favorites.

The "Space Trilogy" or "Ransom Trilogy" series by C.S. Lewis. I loved them, but they were a pain to carry as one volume.

Tolstoy's 'War and Peace' - a great read, but a hefty one.

Peter F. Hamilton's SF tomes are wrist breakers too, but worth it!

There is a book, the name of which escapes me, that I would love to have on my Kindle. It is called something like: "The History of the Isle." Basically a history of the British Isles fro mpre-history ot modern times. I keep trying to read it, but the dropping of the book when I finally succumb to sleep keeps me losing my place. Frustrating. Plus it is too big to lug around for interstitial reading. I have it at home and Amazon seems to be down again today, so I can't look it up.

interstitial reading is a beautiful expression. i hope you won't mind if i shamelessly steal it from you.

I'm intrigued by the homocidal ewwy gooey species.
Somewhere in my dust collection (p-book shelf), I have a follow up short story, where V has to go back to the desert dead place and open a can of whup-bottom on them critters, once and for all.
