I usually tend to read more than one book at any given time. Started on Melville's Moby Dick, almost finished Lethem's As She Climbed Across the Table. And I got the huge Black Lizard Big Book Of Pulps collection for christmas, so I'm reading one story per day from that one. Moby Dick is one of those books that make me embarassed why I haven't attempted reading them before. It seems quite magnificent. The Lethem book isn't quite on par with Motherless Brooklyn or Gun With Occasional Music, but it's entertaining and clever enough.
