3 Jan

Welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived here on Taking on a World of Words. Just answer the three questions below and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to look at. No blog? No problem! Just leave a comment with your responses. Please, take some time to visit the other participants and see what others are reading. So, let’s get to it!IMG_1384-0

The Three Ws are:

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

Currently reading: There wasn’t much movement on The Color Purple by Alice Walker. I didn’t work a lot last week so I didn’t have work lunchtime to read. I’m hoping this picks back up now that work has started again.
It’s a slow go with A Widow for One Year by John Irving but I knew it would be. I don’t drive a lot so having one book dedicated to driving time will be a book I don’t finish quickly. I’m only on the second disk and I’m having some trouble remembering where I left off before the holidays.
I’m over half way through Please Look After Mom by Kyung-Sook Shin and really enjoying it. I thought the second person narration was going to throw me off a lot when I started but I got used to it very fast and I’m liking it a lot now.

Recently finished: I finished one last night and had to update this post right away so I could tell you all! I got through The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides thanks to cooking before my husband got home, haha. I finished it just before dinner was done and I’m so proud of myself for timing it just perfect. The review might not be up for a bit, I have a lot of posts I want to get up!
I did manage to write a review of The Professor and the Madman by Simon Winchester which was posted yesterday. Go check it out! I gave the book 3 out of 5 Stars. I liked it enough, but there were some slow bits. I’ve shared my full thoughts in the post.

Reading Next: I have Harry Potter y las Reliquias de la Muerte by J.K. Rowling ready to go as soon as I finish Mom. I’m hoping that will be this weekend at the latest.
I’ll be starting a new audiobook this morning but depending on what time zone you’re in, you might see this before I start it! My next audioboook will be How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie. I found a beautiful old copy of this book at a used book sale and brought it home. It wasn’t a priority so I lent it to a friend who found out the hard way that the glue was drying out and the pages were coming out! I figured it was better to audiobook this one now that I’m ready to read it.
