"The true felicity of a lover of books is the luxurious turning of page by page, the surrender, not meanly abject, but deliberate and cautious, with your wits about you, as you deliver yourself into the keeping of the book. This I call reading."
I do wish there was a place to say I am actually reading a book, among the 'TBR, AVL, PC, RES, TRAV' list, like there is on goodreads. At present I click on RES if I am commenting on the book before I finish it, as I frequently do! Any suggestions, or would it even be possible?
You could post in the "what we're reading now" threads in the Book Talk forum, and/or create a "current reads" list in your profile. [I read so many books so quickly that updating my profile tends to fall by the wayside, and even in the forums I only list a small subset of the books I'm actually reading!]
