What Are You Currently Reading?

Exactly what the title says. What book(s) are you reading now?

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. I got it on my kindle for free as it's public domain now. Also since I decided to cosplay Dorothy I thought I should know the original book. So far the only difference between it and the movie is the color of the shoes.

Does re-reading count?

If so:

• Dracula- Bram Stoker
• Wheel of Time series- Robert Jordan
• Temeraire series- Naomi Novik
• Warriors series- Erin Hunter (Yes, I'm an adult. I still read them, so what?)
• The Complete Sherlock Holmes- Arthur Conan Doyle
• Comes a Horseman- Robert Liparulo
• Vampire Hunter D series- Hideyuki Kikuchi


If not:

• Carmilla- Sheridan Le Fanu
• Master of None- Sonya Bateman
• Dhampir- Barb Hendee
• Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter- Seth Grahame-Smith

Skyrim's been keeping me busy lately, but I still need to finish Fool Moon (from the Dresden Files series).

lol, I've basically been reading the Dresden Files non-stop since A Kon. I JUST finished Side Jobs last week and am all caught up. Predictable, but highly entertaining.

I just started re-reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone after working my way through Pottermore.

I'm reading "A Dance With Dragons" (it's taking me forever. Being an English major is really cutting into my reading time)

And "King Lear" for my survey of Brit Lit class.
And kids book for early literacy class

We just finished King Lear in my class!

My course load demands a lot of time too, so I have very little time to read for fun beyond the school-assigned stuff. Atlas Shrugged (Ayn Rand) and my American History textbook (Brinkley) keep me busy.

I'm not reading anything right this moment because I'm busy with essays and mid-term exams for university, but once the semester is over I've decided to finally tackle Neuromancer. I think it's time; wish me luck. 0.o

I'm currently reading a book called Skyship Academy: The Pearl Wars. It's genre is sci-fi. I'm loving it thus far. I'd recommend it for anyone with an interest in sci-fi and a coming-of-age/school related story.
