Default What book are you currently reading   #1  
I'd like to start this thread just to see what books everyone is reading.
This way we can all get recommendations of books we may want to read in the future.

Feel free to comment on the book if you have already read it.

We're all mad here.
Let's see,

The Hobbit, Tolkien
Memories of Ice, Erikson
H.P. Lovecraft collection (Currently "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward")

Those are the ones I'm actively reading, not including the ones I've started and will eventually get to, or the ones that I've yet to start and are on my list.

I was gifted a novel for Christmas so I'm currently reading La Vérité sur l’Affaire Harry Quebert(The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair) by Joel Dicker (yeah, the original book is in french and I'm reading it in french). It's a mystery novel and it's very thrilling; there are a lot of moments when you wonder what's going to happen next.
It was also a best-seller.

Anyone has non-fiction, culture/art related book(s) to suggest?

Which just means that that's what people happen to be reading right now.

I'm being nit-picky because every time I hear a question that starts with "Am I the only..." 98% of the time it's "No." :P.

I said in my post that I always read two books at a time, one fiction and one non-fiction

I like to learn stuff, and sometimes I just need a break from the fiction book.

Finished with Charles, onto the Randolph Carter stories. I'm finding that out of Lovecraft's stuff, Cthullu isn't catching my interest all that much. Perhaps because in some ways, he seems the most straight forward.

Bald and loving it!
I am currently reading way to much I suppose. Some of it is for my career and the other is because I needed a break and happen to give this author a second chance.

I am reading the Demonata series by Darren Shan. I started with Circ Du Freak years ago but never finished. In this series I picked up Lord Loss on a whim and have been reading it ever since. I am currently reading book 7 of the series Death's Shadow.

I am also reading Dressing Smart for Women: 101 mistakes you can't afford to make... and how to avoid them. Long story short I want a promotion but I feel as though my appearance may have hindered this so I am trying to become more professional.

I am also reading Scott Pilgrim versus the World Vo 1.
I read his other graphic novel and I love the movie so though why not.

I know what you mean. If I listed all the books I was actually part way through the list would be much, much bigger, mostly because I can't stand to leave a book unfinished. I've decided for my sanity though, to work "actively" on only a few at the time, those being mainly The Hobbit and Memories of Ice right now (short stories I've decided don't count.)

I mostly want to get The Hobbit finished so I can focus entirely on Memories of Ice, so that Suze and I can chat about it without worrying about spoilers for me.;)

Of the stuff I've started reading, I'll decided on a case-by-case basis what to do. I might restart The Brothers Karamazov since I'm not all that far in, but Out of Africa (left over from uni) I can probably just pick up and keep going.

There's also the stuff I have to stop myself from picking up, because I don't need to start more.

Airhead by Meg Cabot.

Young teen/teen novel, but it's quite a good premise for a story. Two girls have their brains surgically swapped, so the (tomboyish, gamer) protagonist must come to terms with being in the body of a supermodel.

It's a quick and easy read for a bit of light entertainment :P
