Kind of like What-are-you-listening-to-XIII (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?383311-What-are-you-listening-to), except that you tell us what you're currently reading.

If you want, you could tell us approximately how far through it you are, maybe even tell us if you've read it before. If you really want to go all out, maybe even give us some random way to tell us how good it is (so far?), like how many flying fish out of 87 or something.

I'll start: The Interpreter's Tale (http://www.amazon.com/Interpreters-Tale-Word-Many-Meanings/dp/1503295621/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1426023792&sr=8-1&keywords=the+interpreters+tale), by E.M. Epps.
Just over halfway through my second reading.
6/7 Chibithulhus, because I always find it hard to commit myself to that final Chibithulhu.

Currently I'm slightly more than halfway through Beautiful Darkness, the sequel to Beautiful Creatures. It's good, but the first book was better. I'd give the first book an 8/10 and this one a 7/10. It's definitely holding my interest, but I've read better.

The Big Book of Christmas Mysteries - described as "The most complete collection of Yuletide Whodunits ever assembled".

I am about 2/3 of the way through and enjoying it immensely. So far I've got a Holmes, a Poirot , and a Rumpole story and believe I 've got a Nero Wolf and Brother Cadfael to look forward to...

I'm about halfway through The Magician's Land, by Lev Grossman. It's the third book in the trilogy, so I'm on the verge of needing a new series to start.

I'd best describe it as a really dark, written for adults, version of Harry Potter meets Narnia. Great series overall.

Isaac Asimov: The Complete Stories Volume 1

I read 'The Dead Past' last night, and I'm reading one story per night before bed.

I don't want to spoil anything. But it's good, especially when taken with the rest of the series as a whole. There's a certain sense of completeness and closure you want from the last book of a series, and it delivers.

The Time Traveler's Wife (http://www.amazon.com/Time-Travelers-Wife-Audrey-Niffenegger/dp/015602943X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1427758946&sr=8-1&keywords=the+time+travelers+wife), by Audrey Niffenegger.

I love this book, and it's been too long since I've read it.

Raising Steam, what may *possibly* be the Last Discworld Ever, and *certainly* the Last Pterry Discworld. He'll be missed.
