    for chess, i'm reading Bobby Fischer teaches chess.  It's realy helped my game, and if you read it, hopefully it'll help you.

    I find chess books slow and cumbersome, compared to videos(here) and tactic sites imho.

    At the moment, "Winning Chess Strategies" by Yasser Seirawan.  Love it so far, I hope to go through the whole book a few more times after I'm done.

    I'm reading Madame Bovary by Flaubert. Before that was a few short stories by Dostoevsky.

    Among other things I'm in the middle of this right now:

    Unfortunately it's pretty cumbersome though; the editors are none too readable, I'm afraid.

    Chess books only:

     

    How to Reassess Your Chess - Good book, will probably be able to learn from this for quite a while to come by additional readings.

    Silman's Endgame Book - Nice and instructional.

    FCO - Should arrive Monday, so no comments yet.

    Improve your Chess Tactics by Neistadt - Tough at times, but a nice tactics book with real game situations.

    learn chess by john nunn (great book just the right kind of info I need)

    chess fundamentals by capablanca (too old fashioned for my liking now that I have "learn chess" but I will still finish anyway)

    I've read art of attack its ok. It wasn't my favorite. Its tons of variations to go through it can get rather monotonous.
