I follow all of my series on FictFact.com and I've got a lot on there that I haven't started yet. I think I may have to add some more after reading this thread!
Three Sisters Island trilogy by Nora Roberts
Black Daggar Brotherhood series by JR Ward (*haven't finished yet, but they've all been excellent so far)
Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris
Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich (*haven't finished yet either, but am enjoying them very much)
I've also just started (and like so far)
Earth's Children series by Jean M. Aeul
Witches of Eileanan series by Kate Forsyth
Cirque du Freak series by Darren Shan. If you've had the misfortune of seeing the movie, erase it from your memory as it had very little to do with the books. The books are great, the movie was horrible.
The Looking Glass Wars trilogy by Frank Beddor.
The Walking Man series by Mo Hayder. I don't know that they're listed here as being a series, so this is the order
1) Birdman, 2) The Treatment, 3) Ritual, 4) Skin, 5) Gone.
Seconding The Dresden Files.

The Mayfair Witches series of books by Anne Rice (Lasher, etc)
The Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich (one for the money, two for the dough, etc)
The entire Harry Potter series by J K Rowling.
The Godfather series by Mario Puzo.
Uhhh.... that's all I can think of. I enjoyed reading the Twilight series, but don't think i'd re-read them...
UGH!!! How could I forget -the Lonesome Dove series by Larry McMurtry.
