I'm currently about a quarter of the way through Terra Fae
by Sabrina Zbasnik. Very clever and even better than her first book.

About halfway through Asimov's Foundation. I really enjoyed the first chapter and was assuming that I would read at least the original trilogy, but I'm bogging down. Maybe it's just too much politics for me in the midst of the real-life election. Not sure. I know it's a classic, but I'm curious how other people actually feel about it...
It's one of my favorites, both the original trilogy and the sequels that he wrote in the 80s. If you have to choose between the most classic of SF and the idiocy of real-life politics, I'd go with Asimov.
