I actually don't read a lot of books, just a ton of articles (really long ones). This was the last one I read and finished

I really fucking dug that last book I read, Confessions of a Sociopath.
 
I did a lot of sitting in the cab of a truck this past weekend, and when I wasn't driving I was reading this:

Jane Eyre is a great book.  I found the cross-dressing scene well trippy.  That shit isn't in the movies.

Yeah, that is a great film.  I saw the early gloryhole era adaptation when I was young'un and it freaked me the fuck out.  I would have been about eight at the time.

A fellating lover just gave me a nice hardcover copy from 1980 of Vikings! by Magnus Magnusson, so I am reading that in this period.

I picked up a Lovecraft collection a few years back that looked really cool but is not so well bound and was produced cheaply. It's pretty to look at but will not hold up well to handling as the years progress.
 
Here's a photo of it I found with GIS


 
I've seen some hardcover versions floating around that probably hold up far better.
 
Which collection do you have?
