Here's what is on my immediate reading pile:
The Shroud of the Thwacker by Chris Elliott. I'm halfway through this farce and it is classic Elliott. Very absurd, but laugh-out-loud funny.
The Da Vinci Code (Illustrated Edition) by Dan Brown. This is one of those cultural phenomenons that I've been feeling left out of, like the whole Harry Potter thing. Unlike the boy wizard, I actually have an interest in this book, based on raves from my family and my general interest in conspiracy theories. I also want to read it before the movie comes out.
Angels & Demons by Dan Brown. I'll read this prequel only if I enjoy the above book.
And stuff that I've been periodically leafing through:
On Food and Cooking by Harold McGee. This book about the history and science behind, well, food and cooking is really interesting. And thorough. I mean, there's 50 pages devoted to eggs.
The Message Remix by Eugene H. Peterson. Any translation of the Bible endorsed by Bono's gotta be good, right? Right?
