I'm still reading lots of Non-Crap Books (I've got the Alexandria Quartet on the go at the moment), but I've been making some space to simultaneously read Gardner Dozois Sci-Fi compilations, historical bodice-rippers about 17C Japan and Things with Dragons on the Cover.
It's surprisingly good for the soul.
(*Reads Scone's post* - I am also keen on church architecture - whole shelf of books on it - and beer.)
How many books do you have on the go at once?
My books are usually aviation based, as I seldom get time to read these days, I make sure it's a book that will be interesting to me, something I can learn from.
Although "French Children Don't Throw Food" may be my next, after recently having a little baby girl....
I've just yesterday finished "Empire Of The Clouds" - about the demise of the once great British aviation industry since the 50's / 60's..
"Man In The Hot Seat" by Doddy Hay was good, he was Martin Baker's Ejection Seat guinea pig! (well written, as he wasn't just an #AvGeek, but also a London journalist).
An old favourite: "Into Thin Air" - a history of aviation medicine, the science behind keeping aircrew alive..
