What are you reading?

So here's the ungodly bastard lovechild of the classic What are you listening to now? and, erm, Toilet Literature threads.

What are you reading at the moment? Be honest.

I'll start off by saying that although I'm trying to work my way through numerous tomes, the main two are presently:
London: The Biography by Peter Ackroyd and Underground London: Travels Beneath the City Streets by Stephen Smith.

Next one up (well, next interruption anyway) will of course be JKR's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

So, anyone else?

I'll admit, I don't read many books. I find it very hard to keep focus, maybe I need glasses? But I read the first pages very enthusiastically and then think, "I can't be f**king bothered, I'll watch the film!"

It's annoying, me being a writer, I need to read books to learn the different techniques, but it's just not happening lately.

Up until recently I was a Pro Wrestling fan :D (let's not have that discussion now) So my answer would be, the Ric Flair Biography 'To Be the Man' or something?. I'm half way through reading it, I took a brake from it, about May last year.

This thread!

I'm like Leevil though. Don't seem to be able to make time to read. I'm halfway through "Me Moir" - Vic Reeves autobiograhy which I started reading in January.
