Hard to say, but I am enjoying my current reads very much; one is a history of Rome and the other is a book that tries to characterize the the "Greekness" of classical Greeks. They are not academic books exactly, but provide a good background for someone (me) contemplating a trip to these countries.
I enjoy "intelligent" conversation about almost anything. So, books and beer in a congenial environment is an appealing combination.
