I feel like such a nerd. I mostly read non-fiction... okay, okay, I mostly read journal articles...or else Cosmo or other trash magazines, or poems (as this is my attention span).
I usually start a book, then get busy doing something else, then start another book, then can't remember what was going on in the first book....sigh!
I love T.S. Eliot.
I did read a good book during the summer called "The Red Tent" about Dinah from the old testament. This book seemed to hold my attention all day, and I read it all in one day.
I also like the James Herriott vet books, like "It shouldn't happen to a vet" and "All Creatures Great and Small"...hilarious ;D. And each chapter is kindof a story by itself, so you can put it down and pick it up again later....no big time commitment required.
I should make an effort to be more "well read".

These are just some I enjoy - not "must reads" - often my reading is of a lighter nature, because it is my escape...
