The Obamians and The Sins of the Father are the ones I have just put down.. I have this tendency to read many books simultaneously...see below!
Never managed to answer this question properly... But a list would certainly include: Austen, Marquez, Hobsbawm, Russell, Wilde, Orwell, Naguib Mahfouz, Mohamed Heikal, Terry Eagleton, Yokio Mishima, Chomsky...etc
Currently on my nightstand as I write this: The Politics of Pleasure, How to change the world: reflections on Marx and Marxism, Letters of Lord Chesterfield to his son, The Importance of being Earnest (reading it for the 15th time probably!!), Literary theory: a very short introduction, The Penguin History of the United States of America, The Moon is a Baloon, The Complete idiot's guide to American literature, In defense of Idleness, NW:a Novel, and 32 (a novel in Arabic)..A bit of a nasty habit, piling books to read (or re-read) all at once :)
A very broad range, pretty much everything...
