The Bhagavad-Gita....the Signet Classic edition. This edition is actually easy to read and understand. And the forward is by Aldous Huxley!
I'm trying to learn about the beliefs of other cultures in an effort to understand the world around me. It's getting smaller and smaller. :)

I'm plugging through Irene Nemirovsky's Suite Francaise. I've gotten a bit distracted by it though because I just got Kazou Ishiguro's Nocturnes in the mail the other day and I'm DYING to read it. I have to finish the other first though. I'm kind of crazy about not starting new books until I finish the old first. :P But the anticipation! Oh, the anticipation for Nocturnes!

I've recently finished Housekeeping, by Marilyn Robinson, and Let the Great World Spin, by Colum McCann. I'm going to review them tomorrow on my blog. I'm savoring the last few months of time to read for fun before starting a graduate English degree and doing critical reading all the time. I'm also in the middle of Julie and Julia, and haven't decided how I feel about it yet. Mostly good, but I'm not fully sure.
Oh, and I just read Never Let Me Go, by Kazuo Ishiguro, but watch the movie first so you can actually enjoy it (that's my philosophy, anyway).

Brooklyn is one of my recent favourites. I went on a Toibin kick in the fall and have Mothers and Sons in a stack by my bed waiting.

Right now, I'm starting A Short Life of Trouble, a memoir by Marcia Tucker.

I just read Family Album by Penelope Lively. It's not only a beautiful and melancholic novel, it also hosts one of Laura Letinsky's photographs on the cover (a favorite photographer of mine). I highly recommend any of her works. :)

The intimidatingly big Caravaggio by Andrew Graham-Dixon and a recent surprise return to Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. Possibly just to give my wrists a break every now and then!

Last minute add: The Paris Wife by Paula McLain...Hemingway's first wife! I'm fascinated by that whole group of people and that period in time!

Argh...3rd comment under the same post and was reading The Paris Wife and realized I mistyped. It's by Paula McLain...ABOUT Hemingway's first wife, not BY Hemingway's first wife. Although, that would be fantastic! ;)
Anyway, just in case readers are considering the suggestions, I thought I should correct that.

i am just starting the savage garden by mark mills.

it's been sitting in my to-read stack for over a year. it was recommended to me as a very literary, historical, kind of creepy, mystery by my cousins who have a fab independent bookstore in montgomery, al--they always are on point in book recs..and so far, so good.
