Readers thread: what or who are you reading right now?

I don't really know that we've ever had a thread (not that I recall) for reading. So, for any readers - what are you reading right now? Fiction, non-fiction... if it's a book let's share?

I like to work my way through authors here lately and am doing Mark Haddon (after reading his novel "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time") and am on the hunt for Zora Neale Hurston novels after finishing "Their Eyes Were Watching God" (originally published in 1937).

It became my habit and a hobby to find an author I like and to track down as many of their works as I can find. I've already done Mark Twain, John Steinbeck, Tom Robbins, Richard Bach, Ray Bradbury, Douglas Adams, Margaret Atwood, C.S. Lewis & many others.... you get the idea.

I also like works of fiction written by international authors which are then transcribed to English, and I have a penchant for vintage cookbooks and Manners and Etiquette books before 1940.

Thought it might be fun and interesting to see and share what we're reading? Articles, Magazines, Audio books... all in bounds... it's hard with PTSD brains to read. For me it was something I formerly enjoyed that I had to re-acquire. So let's keep it social please and share?
Love the classics. I get my suggestions from a fellow on YouTube. It is calledTristan and the Classics. He educates, give synopsis and gets you to become a huge fan of the classics. Just starting Crime and Punishment by Dostoevsky. Like many of your authors.
Can I tell you what I am reading today? So sorry I dismissed the idea years ago! Robinson Crusoe….. it is not what you think you know about the story. Can’t put it down. So so many life lessons hidden. Love it.
I’ve been binge-reading (is that a thing!?)
Yup - tend to binge read when intrusive thoughts are bad....

Restaurant At The End Of The Universe Legend has it the whole book was written in two weeks, two weeks AFTER the publishers deadline. It was also the subject of his quote "I love deadlines. I love the whooshing sound they make as they go by...."
