The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon.
Pretty good. The Lain Coubert reveal was too obvious, though, even with the Jorge Aldaya red herring...

“…the whole trouble lies here. In words, words. Each one of us has within him a whole world of things, each man of us his own special world. And how can we ever come to an understanding if I put in the words I utter the sense and value of things as I see them; while you who listen to me must inevitably translate them according to the conception of things each one of you has within himself. We think we understand each other, but we never really do.”
XKCD is always relevant. Always.
Honestly, I am not reading anything at the moment. I might read ‘Epic’ by Conor Kostick again soon, my favorite book, I have read it twice already.
Last book I read was City of Thieves, was a really good book. Highly recommend it.
Winter's Heart - Book 9 of The Wheel of Time
Just motoring along through the series, I might wait until September or October to read The Gathering Storm and Towers of Midnight so that they are fresh for when A Memory of Light comes out.

However, I'm reading pretty damn slowly
Ulysses at the moment. Afterwards, either going to reread The Fault in Our Stars or go on to A Light in August. I have a whole library of Faulkner and Joyce to finish.
Currently reading 3rd book from Terry Pratchet's "Guards" cycle. I'm quite ashamed that i'm almost 30, and just recently discovered those wonderful books.
AFK: Attack, fight, kill! Healer is bored with spamming hots.
WTF: Way to fight! Healer loves you for pulling three trash packs.
OOM: Out Of Mobs! Healer needs a challenge.
Like the title says, what book are you reading right now? I just finished The Last Gaurfian ad it was wonderfull! Currently I'm reading City of Thieves, and somewhat started slowly reading Ico. I have more that I want to read but I'm trying to get through City of Thieves first xD
I'm just about to start A Feat for Crows.
I have heard it's quite boring; still thrilled after ASoS.

Hehe it sounds boring, let me know how it is!
Currently finished reading Harry Potter again, just went with the Pottermore editions, the UK versions for a bit of flavor.
Currently reading Harry Potter fan fiction about the continuing Story, Albus Potter and .... There's 6 books in this series. They are well done.
Planning on re-reading the Artemis Fowl series before the next book comes out.
Personally, at least to me, getting very tired of Song of Ice and Fire. First 2 books were great. 3-5 seem to be dragging and getting worse. Seems a lot like how Wheel of Time went. Seems like the authors know where they want to go, or how the series will end but they don't know how to get there. Thus it drags on and on and on.
Other recent readings, loved Stieg's Milenium trilogy. Also been throwing in some old school Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Civil Law, studying for judge exam this summer
Also recently i read a book written by some romanian author : Radu Tudoran - All sails up! or something like that, very enjoyable adventure book about friendship, sailing and love.
