I'm usually reading a book on criticism and a book of poetry, once in a while I manage to read a novel. Currently, I'm reading a book on New Formalism and about to start reading some more Lacan.
>>
mostly textbooks now that I'm in school again

mostly read short stories, novellas, and poetry now because I don't have the time and taking a month to read a novel depresses me
>>
i read classics and philosophy.

I read whatever I want desu, fiction, nonfiction, etc.

Just finished The Blood Oranges today, it was nice. Really interesting themes behind the book though its so easy to mistake it by looking at the face value plot.

Now Scott Lynch needs to hurry up with that new Locke Lamora book
>>
philosophy, math and physics for my courses
poetry and upper-tier memes (Eco) in spare time
also politics/philosophy/theory blogs
>>
I have really only had time to read books about film theory, my japanese language textbooks. I have been reading In Search of Time Lost whenever I get the time.
>>
>>7675091
The Tunnel, The Recognitions.

Whatever literary criticism or other material in my classes. Aside from that I read pulp fiction in my spare time.

History, mostly. Early 20th century poetry. Futurist writing. A lot of literary theory and classic fantasy books.
>>
I'm a journalism major so I read a lot of news. I also read authors who used to be journalists to see how they translated news writing into prose. Hemingway and Thompson are two that I've been enjoying recently.
I've also been reading some Dick and am starting to read all of Shakespeare in chronological order.
I have a study bible which includes maps, notes and references that I read alongside a KJV bible.
