The entire Dark Tower series is great (seven books, plus a novella entitled The Little Witches of Eluria and another novel entitled The Wind Through the Keyhole). I "read" them via audiobook, and if you go that route, do not listen to anyone other than Frank Muller for the first 4 (he passed away so couldn't read the rest). I'm currently reading them in print now.

The Eyes of the Dragon is a wonderful book, if you like fantasy.

After reading The Dark Tower, I used an online guide to read Stephen King books that had Dark Tower references in them. Most were just okay, but I very much enjoyed Black House and The Talisman (note: these were co-written with Peter Straub).

Finally, completely unrelated to The Dark Tower: The Shawshank Redemption (real name: Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption) is wonderful (and also read by Frank Muller). Stephen King highly praised Muller's narration, and it's fantastic. Highly recommended.
