I normally keep a book or 5 going at the same time. I have my night time book by the bed and the others are just scattered around the house near places i like to sit and read at. The bed book of the moment is Tai Pan by James Clavell, some of the other books are The R. Crumb handbook by Crumb and Peter Poplaski, Amphigorey Also by Edward Gorey, Choke by Chuck Palahniuk and The Great Shark Hunt by Hunter S Thompson.
Choke was by far my least favorite Palahniuk book so far (I've read all of them but Haunted)- maybe it was because it seemed even more cynical and satirical than usual for him, or maybe it was simply the overabundance of heterosexual sex. Either way, I much preferred Invisible Monsters and Survivor.
Anyways, I am currently reading "American Pastoral" by Philip Roth, and enjoying the Sandman series by Neil Gaiman for the second time (the amount of subliminal connections between characters and events, and the amount of references to history, mythology, and Tori, is astounding!).
Reason for Editting: forgot to share which books I'm reading
