I have never been a reader. I want to be. Recommend where I can start; online at lunchtimes at work. Bonus points for shorter stories (at first).

So I have always read lots of stuff on the internet (thanks to Metafilter for the help), but never really got heavily involved with fiction writers. I would like to, some things out there are awesome - and I would love more experience as I intend give writing a go at some point in the distant future too.
I think I like fantasy, scifi, comedy. I dont think I am a big fan of very historical things, heavy fictions, serious stuff, books with thousands of names.
I think I like adventure and creativity and inspiration and wonder and laughs.
My limited reading, so far includes things like: neil gaiman, hithchikers guide, his dark materials, kafkas metamorphoses, 1001 arabian nights, 1984, discworld, Roald Dahl, David Gemmels Legend, some philosophy books, graphic novels, and pretty much everything I can get my hands on (article wise) on the internet.
What should I start reading?
What is a good site to be spoon fed things to read other than metafilter?
