Gotta start somewhere mate.
If I had to suggest two or three books that are engaging to get you into it, I'd say start with something simple and high fantasy (Deltora Quest holds a special place in my heart and would be my recommendation), then move on to something like The Warrior Heir or The Lies of Locke Lamora.
After that my suggestions would be The Name of The Wind, Dragonlance, or Lord of the Rings.
Course that's just assuming you're into High Fantasy. I have a toootally separate list for Sci Fi
