Well, we've got a thread for recently purchased books, but that's a little different than a thread about what you're currently reading, for which none exists. I thought this would be a good place to post about what books you're reading and your thoughts about them, no matter when you purchased them. If you're like me, you have stacks of books laying around that you bought a long time ago but are just now getting to reading. If you're like me, you also read more than one book at a time. Currently, I am reading a few books, but this is the main one: The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseni. I'm about halfway in. It's a good read so far. Not incredibly gripping, but definitely interesting. There aren't many fictional works about Afghanistan available to western audiences, so this is a good one to read. So what are the rest of you reading?
