For some of my recent reading:
Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: I know this wasn't your intention, but now I really feel like a loser for how little my garden is producing.
The Aeneid (trans. Sarah Ruden): This translation is clear, memorable, and moving; it made me wish that Vergil had finished the poem, just so I could read more.
The Phantom Tollbooth (in progress): Why did it take me so long to discover this book?
The Trumpeter of Krakow: I'm not actually reading this one--my wife is. But this book smells like a happy childhood.
Prime Obsession: Bernhard Riemann and the Greatest Unsolved Problem in Mathematics (in progress): I feel the ceiling of what is possible for me to learn about math rushing precipitously toward my head.
