    Works for me :).

    Anyway . . .

    Tale of the Body Thief by Anne Rice

    Something lengthy, entertaining, and well-written.

    Naked by David Sedaris

    None, although some sections in Augusten Burroughs' Dry made me come very close to shedding tears.

    Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey

    The Harry Potter series

    Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, for the third time (I think . . .).

    The Monk by Matthew Lewis
