13 Aug

I’m proud to say I made the progress I promised for MizB’s WWW meme. All the books are progressing nicely; hopefully there will be progress next week, too.

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 still making slow progress on  The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien. I’m really not surprised, because I keep this to be my ‘slowly yet surely’ book. It’s living up to its name. I promised to say I made progress on it yesterday because Katherine takes forever to try on clothes at H&M! My carpool buddy and I are almost done with Looking for Alaska by John Green. He’s already ‘John Greened’ us and I’m curious to see how this will end. While I wait for my next audiobook to get in, I’m listening to Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick. I thought I’d put this aside soon, but the audiobooks I have on hold are taking forever to get in! I’ve only got a few minutes left, so this should be off the list soon. I started reading Canada by Richard Ford. It’s been on the top of my TBR pile for a long time, so it’s good to get this one off. The way it was on my shelf, the huge picture of the author on the back looked like he was watching you while you watched TV on the couch. I think my husband’s glad it moved.

Recently finished: Just one finished this week: Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn. I stayed up late to finish this one but it was sooo worth it!

I’ve been trying to get through my backlog of reviews, so go check out my review The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe.

Reading Next:  Same as last week because nothing came in at the library: Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett on audio, Beneath a Marble Sky by John Shors, and Under the Wide and Starry Sky by Nancy Horan. Keep your fingers crossed that something turns up soon!

I’m hoping to finish ‘Alaska’ and ‘Leonard Peacock’ this week.’ How is your WWW? Leave a comment and let me know and check out the original post on MizB’s blog!

Until next time, write on.

    I think I have read all of John Green’s books – what a fabulous writer. I am looking forward to your review of Looking for Alaska. I just finished Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline (highly recommend this historical fiction) and I am currently reading Letters of Note: An Eclectic Collection of Correspondence Deserving of a Wider Audience by Shaun Usher (absolutely fascinating!) and The Book of Life by Deborah Harkess (last book in the Discovery of Witches trilogy – good summer read). Not sure what I am going to read next. The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin is on the top of my pile of books, so perhaps that. Or Silver Star by Jeannette Wells.

      ‘The Orphan Train’ is an upcoming book club selection, so I’ll be reading that one soon! I’ve seen a lot about ‘The Storied Life’ as of late. I might have to add it to the growing pile!
      Happy Reading!

      It’s about a boy whose parents rob a bank and he’s sent to live in Canada. That’s about all I know and I’m at the part of the book where the bank robbery happens. (This is not a spoiler, he tells you about it in the first sentence.) It’s really engrossing so far.

      I hope it comes in soon! The person who has it from the library was supposed to return it two weeks ago.
