I am currently very, very behind, so here is a list of what I've read recently and I'll try to do some longer posts on these books later.
L'éducation sentimentale 
George Steiner's The death of tragedy 
Billy Collins's Questions about angels 
Michael Hamburger's Selected poems 
Another poetry book, the title and author of which I have completely forgotten, and which I can only check when I next go to the Poetry Library 
Sheila Rowbotham's Dreams and dilemmas, a lovely collection of articles 
The Spare Rib reader 
A study of the poetry of Keith Douglas, by William Scammell 
The night watch, by Sarah Waters 
Flight without end, by Joseph Roth 
The roaring nineties, by Joseph Stiglitz 
A collection of children's wartime and holocaust diaries, collected by Laurel Holliday 
I'm currently in the middle of Le rouge et le noir, The selfish gene, Elaine Showalter's A literature of their own and a history of Germany 1918-1990. More soon...
Edit: book number 56 is Jack Gilbert's Transgressions: selected poems.
