WWW Wednesday, 16-July-2014

16 Jul

Almost in reaction to last week’s progress, I’ve got almost nothing to report for MizB’s WWW meme. I guess that’s what happens when you do a 120 mile bike tour over the weekend. So there is that, right?!

www_wednesdays4The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Currently reading:  I’m about halfway through The Coward by Kyle R Bullock. I’ve taken a bit of a break from it to work through the huge pile of Cosmo magazine on my bedside table but I’ll start it again tonight.  I’m making slow progress through  The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien on my phone. It seems so familiar I think I’ve read it, but i don’t remember it enough to stop. On audio, I just started is reading The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe, but I’m embarrassingly still on the first disk! I haven’t been doing a lot of driving besides to and from work and I need to step up my game. My carpool buddy and I started Looking for Alaska by John Green and she is loving it, as am I. We’re almost through the first disk and I think we’ll keep moving well on it.

Recently finished: Nothing finished, unfortunately. Not even much progress on the books I’m reading, really. I did write a review for A Hologram for the King by Dave Eggers, so you can check that out.

Reading Next:  I’m still hoping to start The Creation of Eve by Lynn Cullen soon. This will fulfill the 1500s time period of my When Are You Reading? Challenge. We’ll see after that.

I’ve got a bit more time at home this weekend so I can do some reading. I’m making ‘The Coward’ my goal for the week. What are your three Ws? Leave a comment and let me know and check out the original post on MizB’s blog!

Until next time, write on.

You can follow me on GoodreadsFacebookTwitterPinterest, and Instagram. I’m available via email at SamAStevensWriter@gmail.com. And as always, feel free to leave a comment!

      Thank you! It was a mental mountain more than a physical one. I can’t wait to do it again next year.

        I love that image of a mental mountain. I’m still working on biking 8-10 miles. 9 just about knocked me out.

        Haha, it was super exciting. I’m starting to recover my energy and get reading again. I missed stories while I was riding. Maybe I need speakers and an audiobook, lol.

    120 miles! I’m impressed. 🙂 It looks like you have some interesting reads; I’ve been wanting to read Looking For Alaska ever since I finished The Fault In Our Stars…

      I’m the same way! I loved how real Greens characters were in TFiOS and I’m seeing the same thing so far in ‘Alaska.’

    Wow, 120 miles! Well, I drove 120 miles last weekend . . . I absolutely loved End of Your Life Book Club. Not only is the book itself amazing, it’s full of great book suggestions. I had the pleasure of meeting Will Schwalbe last year and he is delightful and charming in person.

      I’m glad to hear your recommendation! I hadn’t seen or read anything about it yet and so far, I’m finding it a little hard to get into. I’ll be listening to a big chunk of it tomorrow during my drives so I hope to fall into it and be unable to get back out. I love meeting authors who are as nice as they portray themselves in their books!
