Homeland by Cory Doctorow, really loving it.
Doomsday Book by Connie Willis turned out to be pretty good. Different tone than To Say Nothing of the Dog. It's very sad.
Currently reading The First Law trilogy by Joe Abercrombie. I'm about 50 pages in to book three right now. These books aren't written to hold up as individual novels, it's more just one long novel split into three parts. Interesting story. Very unpredictable. Two thirds of the way through and I'm still not sure where Abercrombie is going with it. There is some hilariously poorly written dialogue, particularly in the first book, but otherwise i'm enjoying the ride so far.
Say one thing for Logen Ninefingers, say that he has nine fingers.

Gotta read "Ender" again before the movie comes out in November!
If you liked Snow Crash, you should definitely check out "The Long Run", my favorite book of all time. It's in a sequence after "Emerald Eyes", but it's not absolutely necessary to read that one first.
I'm reading Wool right now, which is fabulous.
Ive begun Infinite Jest, and will probably read the Mistborn series (or at least the first 3) next.
American Gods is up for sale on Amazon Kindle Store for 1.99. Might be today only?
I'm wondering about buying it, even though I rarely read anything on my Kindle.... hmmm...
'Count Belisarius' by Rovbert Graves. Not as good as the 'I, Claudius' books, but enjoyable.
'The Mighty Toddler' by Robin Barker (we have a 15 month year old)
Just finishing up The Great Karoo (Amazon link) by Fred Stenson. A teenager wants to expand his horizons and signs up for war. He's Canadian and he's off the Boer War. Written in a friendly style and still keeping me interested. Hopefully it'll wind up being satisfying.
Just finishing Chris Hadfield's book: Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth.
I really enjoyed it - very easy reading, lots of little details, quite inspiring, and some useful advice for people working with other people in technical/scientific fields.
