The Septimus Heap series by Angie Sage. Started the series just about a week ago and I'm 3/4 of the way through the fifth of seven books. Pretty much a young teen fantasy series slightly like Harry Potter. I started the series when I was like 12 and one of my greatest pet peeves is leaving a book series unfinished. It drives me mad when I realize it.

EDIT: I read the Great Tree of Avalon series by T.A. Barron over a span of two weeks at work recently as well. I'll probably reread Anthem by Ayn Rand when I'm done with Septimus Heap and follow up with one of my other dozen or so series on my shelf.

I recently located a copy of a book which I'd used while I
was researching what occurred during the covert war in
Central America entitled "Compromised," by Terry Reed
and John Cummings. I highly recommend this for anyone
who wants to learn about what really went on and just
who stood to gain from it. Just be aware that you may
find even owning this book brings with it all sorts of
unwanted attention...

I'm about 200 pages into Game of Thrones, in actual paperback. I'm also chewing through Lobo on my tablet and TMNT on my phone.

Having served in the submarine force I had so many problems with that book but still enjoyed it.

I've been reading a lot of Russian literature for class. Namely Gogol, Lermontov, and Dostoevsky. Some of Gogol's writing (and some of Dostoevsky's) is really similar to Lovecraft or Poe. Like it's a little demented like Poe and supernatural like Lovecraft. As long as the translation is good, they're definitely worth looking into if you like horror or the supernatural.

Lermontov is awesome. We read A Hero of Our Time. I casually mentioned that to a couple of my other professors and I've yet to meet an English or writing professor who can't rant about that novel for 15 minutes.

Holy, totally forgot about this thread.

Almost done the John Carter of Mar's trilogy. Finishing up Warlord of Mar's in the next few days. It's def been a good read while I'm at work on breaks. What I love about it most is that it's science fiction that came before a lot of science, it was back when it seemed possible for life to be on Mars. Very cool.
Makes me want to go back and watch the movie again, but I do remember they mixed up way too much stuff to ever make a proper trilogy (also, Disney totally threw it under the bus).

I forget what I read before that, got my girlfriend reading Name of the Wind, I'm taking her book two this weekend. I need to re read book them again before book three comes out.

Also working through a book on archery I got called "Shooting the Stickbow". It's more like a textbook.
