Are you reading a book, if you are, what are you reading right now?
I'm reading Hunger Games (just started it a while ago). I'm over half done it, it's a pretty good story, I'm really into it. I like the charectors and mostly, I find the atmosphere is excellent for a story. It has a very deep, and twisting plot. The only thing is, where am I going to get the time to read all 3 of them? D:
Now, fellow readers, what are you reading right now?
Wheel of Time, book 11 or 13 or something. I've lost track, they get pretty monotonous after like book 6.

That's such a weird thing to say. Works of fiction teach us things about ourselves and the world that books of facts can never do.
Self Comes to Mind by Antonio Damasio, it's a book about cognition and Damasios theory behind it.
The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison. After this I'm going to read The Story Of The Eye.

I'm reading Dune by Frank Herbert.
The Bird of Hermes is my name, eating my wings to make me tame.

A fantastic choice.
I finally went back to finish Catch-22. I started (and was supposed to finish) it in high school but I only managed, like, a third of it. I actually understand what's going on, now, so it ought to be a blast.
I'm reading Ender's game and Romeo and Juliet right now. 'bout 60+ pages through both as of now.

Have not read them yet.
Sadly I also have yet to read them, but my brother read them all and he got me into the original movie, mini series remake and the games as well as telling me about the more interesting parts of the books beyond the movie. The whole saga is very interesting and enjoyable, one of my favourite actually and I do need to get around to reading the books myself.
Sadly it seems to be often overlooked, many people I mention Dune to seem to have no idea what it is. So sad considering it really should be one of the main fantasy epics that is commonly discussed. Then again I suppose it is for the better to not have hundreds of shitty movies made of it because it is popular.
I also find that people tend not to look into the story who have played the RTS Dune games, which is also quite sad since it goes a lot deeper than the games let on, sure the RTS games are absolutely amazing, but so is the rest of Dune.
Currently I am reading Clockwork Angels by Kevin J. Anderson and Neil Peart.
Really good so far, I recommend it.

Archie VG comics are awesome huh?
I'm currently reading three books. Two of which I am re-reading. by H.G. Wells. by: Harold Goldberg (and yes that is its actual title).
The new book I'm reading is by: Philip Orbanes.
I just read the gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. I'd have to say, it's the best Gospel I've ever read.

I got Jeremy Schaap's Cinderella Man: James Braddock, Max Baer, and the Greatest Upset in Boxing History from the library recently and have been reading that when I've had the time. It's a really fascinating look at how one man went from being a rising up-and-comer in boxing, to a down and out dock worker, and then champion of the world in the heavyweight division. It's like reading about the real life Rocky.
