Water for Elephants

So what are you reading right now? I just started reading "Water for Elephants" and I don't want to put the book down. So far it's a good book and I want to get deeper into the book to find out what happens. Are you reading anything right now? I'll be looking for something else to read after I finish this one.
Here is what the book is about. This was taken directly from the Barnes and Noble website:

As a young man, Jacob Jankowski was tossed by fate onto a rickety train that was home to the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth. It was the early part of the great Depression, and for Jacob, now ninety, the circus world he remembers was both his salvation and a living hell. A veterinary student just shy of a degree, he was put in charge of caring for the circus menagerie. It was there that he met Marlena, the beautiful equestrian star married to August, the charismatic but twisted animal trainer. And he met Rosie, an untrainable elephant who was the great gray hope for this third-rate traveling show. The bond that grew among this unlikely trio was one of love and trust, and, ultimately, it was their only hope for survival.

I loved water for elephants and the movie is equally as good. I also read book one in the hunger games which really really drew me in! Now I am looking at reading extremely close incredibly loud before I see the movie! It looks really moving!
