So... what are you reading right now?

Inspired by the "What are you listening to right now?" thread, let's see what people are up to in the world of letters. Anything and everything welcome, from interesting essays by Orwell to epic poems by Milton to Glamour magazine.

I'm making my way through Dickens' Nicholas Nickleby at the moment with an edition which uses font so small that it makes your eyes bleed as much as the brain does as Dickens' sentences, not distastefully but rather untastefully with a dash of that power which few men are instilled with in Barsetshire Street, wind on for great length, as they make it clear that their creator, educated by the people and most certainly a man of the people, despite his flaws, was paid by the word. -- News and features will be returning shortly...

I 'gin to be a-weary of the sun,
And wish the estate o' the world were now undone.
