What was the last book YOU read?

Yesterday I met with the Asst. Superintendent of the new school district that I got my very first teaching job in. It was an informal interview of sorts and it is the first time that I got a question that one of my undergrad professors said to anticipate in an interview:

What was the last book you read?

My first thought - Every Boy's Got One, but I thought this would not be an acceptable answer to an interview question for a job working with children. So, I answered with Girls in Pants,
the 2nd to last book I read.

Teen lit! The last book I read was Teen Lit! And I fully admitted to this on the interview, followed with 'I plan to read the next Harry Potter when it comes out on July 16th!' OMG! I think I stepped out of my body and just watched myself admit that I read adolescent literature!!! only reprieve is that I said the book before my 'Girls in Pants' book was 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime'.

So...what was the last book that you read?
