What are you reading?

Since the old tyrant forgot to make this prestigious thread, I went ahead and done it.

So what's everyone reading? Give us a summary to whet our appetites.

Mike Lancaster's 0.4 (Human.4 for you Americans out there). 4th read through. Favourite sci-fi yet.

I'm reading Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, a couple of romance books I'd rather not name, and the Unwritten. On Issue 28 or 30, I think. It's really great. Best comic book I've read since Fables.

I totally did. Oops. I'm going to turn that format into a regular feature somewhere possibly anyway.

I'm about to finish The Journey by Ida Fink. Second time reading it (I forgot I'd read it before), and I remember it pretty much word for word. Great prose, and stands apart from most holocaust literature for being completely unsensational.

I've been reading "The Tough Guide to Fantasyland" by Diana Wynne Jones. It's something light to read until the cicadas finally disappear.

Hey folks, feeling good to be back, i've read a few since my last appearance on TWL but atm i'm reading "Rashomon & Seventeen Other Stories" - Ryunosuke Akutagawa, "A Selection Of His Poems And Prose By Kathleen Raine" - Samuel Taylor Coleridge and "Madness And Civilization" - Michel Foucault

I'm not the fastest of readers though and i have only just started all 3 of them in the last 2 weeks or so, so i'll probably be on them for a while as i'm unable to dedicate a huge amount of time each day to reading and often go a few days without reading at all.

Foucault translates a little weirdly at times, but is usually on point.

Finally got around to start reading A Song of Ice and Fire.
