What are you currently reading?

What are your five favourite texts?

What are the top five texts that you find to be the most useful for teaching?

What texts have you had the most fun researching?

Seriously, how is it possible to choose?? Um, I liked writing an article on Eliza Haywood, because I got to sit around reading romance novels for a whole summer (she wrote over 80 works, most of them trashy fiction...).
