Well? We're not just writers, but readers as well. :P

What are you reading at the moment? What do you think of it so far?

I'm reading The Unsuspecting Mage by Brian S.Patt. It looks okay so far, but then, I'm only on the first chapter. :)
We're all a little weird. And life's a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.

Well I am reading THE LOST HERO by Rick Riordan and so far it is good!
I keep on reading books and when I find it quite Boring I leave it for another reading, not totally dumped it.
I read books which caught my interest from the beginning and, THE LOST HERO did it...

I also wanted tor read other works of Rick Riordan, like Percy Jackson series. My friends told me that it was good. :)

I'm a big fan of fantasy so it did well for me.

I am planning to read 'The Choice' by Nicholas Sparks. However it saddens me that I am going to read it online (which means that I would gaze into my laptop screen for hours) because I don't have the book as a hard copy and I don't even feel like going to a bookstore these days. 'The Choice' is a comedy-romance novel, I think.

I'm reading Mockingjay and To Kill a Mockingbird, which I find that unbelievably hilarious.

Just to tell you all, there's a club for this!

Also, I'm reading The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood and Anne of Avonlea by LM Montgomery.

Hey Priceless, I'm pretty happy with your philosophy! You're absolutely write, lot's of us (might even be all) are readers!

Right now, I'm finishing the Mitch Albom's The Timekeeper. It's his newest fiction work and it's quite great. One of his best, I think.

I'm currently somewhere around the start of The Memoirs Of A Master Forger.. For now, it's pretty dark and sarcastic and complicated to figure at times, I like it ^^

I'm reading Ender's Shadow by Orson Scott Card. I'm almost done, and that makes me sad because it's a really great book. Luckily for me there are two books after it!!

I'm reading L. Frank Baum's "American Fairytales". Insofar, it's as weird as one would expect.

I know I shouldn't be reading a dozen books at a time, but I can't help it...I'm an adulterer of books, unable to commit solely to one at a time. So, currently, I'm reading "The Book Thief," "Madmen Underground," "On the Road," "An Abundance of Katherines," and "Will Greyson Will Greyson."

Me too :/ I think I fear completion, so I avoid finishing a story by starting a new one lol.

I'm reading:

Cloud Atlas, by David Mitchell
The Book of Jhereg, by Steven Brust

2 doesn't sound so bad, but I keep purchasing books and I have nowhere to keep them anymore :( The way I stack things about my room would lend people to think that I have a very bad poltergeist problem.

The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, Shiver by Maggie Stievater, and I'm reading alllll of the popular classics :P The classic influences my style a bit, I think :p Every book you read, you take something from it and it changes your own writing a little bit, for better most of the time.
Reading, I think, is hugelllly important for a writer. You read good writing: you learn from it, you mimic other styles, you improve your own writing by seeing how others do it. You read bad writing: you know what NOT to do, you realize the mistakes you make yourself, ect. And reading always inspires me to write myself lol I'm sure it does some of you, too lol
Anyhoo! I know that wasn't the question lolol Sorry for rambling m.-.m
