Seeing as how everyone is always complaining about "meme books", what do you actually read?
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.
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
Federico Garcia Lorca
W. Somerset Maugham
Samuel Beckett (dangerously close to memeage)
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.
