I tend to view, the "what are you reading now" question as what will you finish reading in the next 2-3 days.

Whatever you want it to mean is fine. To me, reading now, is something I have begun and am acitvely working towards finishing. Some of those may take a day to finish others may take a month or two. Still I am actively involved with that book. But heck, it's just a meaningless web poll meant to stimulate some conversation so let it mean whatever you want it to mean, but I can't see stretching the definition to include books you haven't even begun reading no matter how much you intend to read them.
