Hi I'm currently reading/listening (audiobook) to Dune by Frank Herbert.

Great book.

I just finished the second Witcher book. The series is surprisingly good. I was afraid it was overhyped but it is quite good.

I'm slogging through Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietzsche. Interesting stuff but getting through the flowery prose is a bit much. For another book that's now a videogame series, Metro 2033 is great, I read that earlier this year. The translation is a bit iffy, but the story and world are fantastic.

That would be Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch. A healthy dose of english humour (no, not humor  Smiley) after a long working day.

I'm currently reading The Witchery of Archery.  It was mentioned in a post a while back (by walter I think).  I picked up a copy and have just had it sitting on the shelf.  Finally started reading it a few days ago.  It's quite interesting.
