Default What is that you read...apart from Dr. Bernstein?

On and off i come across posts about people reading some good books and posting what they are currently reading. The only common thing we have amongst all of us is currently Dr. Bernstein's diabetes solutions Would love to know what all you guys are currently reading and any great books if you recommend.

I am currently reading The Afghan by Frederick Forsyth. Too early to comment on whether its a good read or not.

The latest good book i read was "Under the Loving Care of the Fatherly Leader: North Korea and the Kim Dynasty"- by Bradley K. Martin. For anyone interested in North Korea and its history, i would really recommend it.

I'm currently reading (as you likely already know) A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth but also The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood and A Blink on the Screen by Terry Pratchett.

You are reading all three simultaneously! I have never tried that!

Wow Canadiandude ... you must have a much longer attention span than I do. Three at once is impressive.
I haven't had much time in the past year, although reading has always been my first love. Hope to get back to it soon, after things slow at work a bit. We just came out of tax season, so I have hopes for a great book to enjoy over the spring (not sure which one yet).

Saw the movie The Help and enjoyed it so much that I decided to buy the book. It's very well written and I'm thoroughly enjoying it.

I LOVE "what are you reading" threads. It helps me add to my what to read next list.
Right now, I'm reading 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami. I'm enjoying it and am almost half way through it.
Before starting this one, I read The Paris Wife by Paula McClain (about Hemingway and Hadley Richardson).

Great minds think alike (and fools seldom differ)
I'm also reading "The Year of the Flood" atm after having just reread "Oryx and Crake". I'm a huge fan of Atwoods!
