I'll limit my reading list to the 'distracting' items, which mostly involve SciFi. The season doesn't matter much to me, as I continually pick up books that strike my fancy (about 30-40 right now) and go through them by spur of the moment selection after finishing each one.

The last couple of months' list reads (newest on top):

The City & The City - China Miéville
Wireless - Charles Stross
The Lords of the Sea - John R. Hale
Northworld Trilogy - David Drake
House of Suns - Alistair Reynolds
Bitter Angels - C.L. Anderson
Conspirator - C.J. Cherryh
Ender in Exile - Orson Scott Card
Temporal Void - Peter F. Hamilton
The Jennifer Morgue - Charles Stross
Fool's Experiment - Edward M. Lerner
Regenesis - C.J. Cherryh

I often find myself reading several books at a time, one 'main' book and one or two others that I read a chapter or two of before returning to my primary read. Exclusive 'chapter nibbles' currently include:

What If? - Robert Cowley
The Scientists - John Gribbin

Despite this rather long list, I only manage to read after going to bed at night, which frequently is less than 30 minutes, if that, plus whatever irregular times I wake up at night.
