Lord John and the Private Matter. It's a mystery set in the 1700s with a gay English military officer as the protagonist. I'm re-listening to the whole series and it's holding up to a second listen pretty well.
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged.

The other, of course, involves orcs.” ~ John Rogers
I was reading a book called Letters to Juliet about people writing letters to Juliet of Verona, that's the character from Romeo and Juliet, I'm nearly finished it now and might write a letter itself, there is an annual contest and the winnder gets a stay in Verona for two people.
Also I'm reading Jung's Anwer to Job, and another book called The Wish List which is a massive life list someone composed and I'm using it to think about goals I might want to complete myself.
I'm reading The Riddle Master's Game at night, its from the fantasy masterworks series but its not as good as Jack Vance's Lyonesse Two which I was reading before that.
There's a book on Ghosts, a natural history of Ghost Hunting but its sort of something to pass the time just, its not that interesting but it passes the time.
The Examined Life: How We Lose and Find Ourselves by Stephen Grosz. I love this book. This is 50,000 hours of a psychoanalyst's sessions condensed into a book. If you enjoyed HBO's In Treatment series or if you enjoy learning what makes a person tick, then go read this book.
The first line in every economics textbook should be: "Marx was a stupid idiot". The second line should read "and the people who believe this nonsense are probably....."
