WWW Wednesday, 20-June-2018

20 Jun

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?

Note: For users of Blogspot blogs, I’m unable to comment on your posts as a WordPress blogger unless you’ve enabled Name/URL comments. This is a known WordPress/Blogspot issue. Please consider enabling this to participate more fully in the community. 


Currently reading: Almost no progress on The Post-Birthday World by Lionel Shriver this week. School ends next week and it’s in high gear now so I did a lot of textbook reading during my lunches. I hope to return to it soon.
I am very disappointed to say that I lost my hold on Dreams of Joy by Lisa See! I put a hold on it to get it back but it might be a bit before I’m able to jump back into this one.
I am starting to think I won’t finish The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan before my book club meeting. I’m out of free time until my class ends so I’m reading about ten pages a night, not enough to help me finish. Seeing as the meeting is the day before my final exam, I might skip it entirely.
I’ve made great progress in The Fifth Assassin by Brad Meltzer. I think that’s solid proof of how seldom I’m home! I’m about halfway through the book now and I should easily finish before I leave for Europe. I don’t want a lingering audiobook while I’m gone.
I started another eaudiobook while I wait for Joy to come back. I started Critical Chain by Eliyahu Goldratt. I’m enjoying it so far and it’s very relevant to the business class I’m taking. It’s not too long so I should wrap it up in a week or two.

Recently finished: Nothing! I’m moving slowly now but I’m optimistic that it will pick up soon. It has to, right?

Reading Next: I’m very tempted to pick up Brainiac by Ken Jennings since Mystique is dragging so much for me. This one looks fun and full of trivia facts. That seems so far off now…


Leave a comment with your link and a comment (if you’re so inclined). Take a look at the other participant links in the comments and look at what others are reading.

Have any opinions on these choices?

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!

    Enjoy your books…sorry The Feminine Mystique is dragging. It has been many years since I read it, so I am curious about how I would react to it now. Here’s MY WWW POST

    Oh no. Sad to hear still no progress on The Feminine Mystique. Think I might just take that off my TBR. You never know – there might be quite a few people in your book club who struggled too. Plus I can’t imagine getting through any books when you have exams coming up. Good luck with them! 🙂

    Sometimes life gets in the way of reading 🙂 I know what you mean about starting and then having to put a book down, I currently have five that I started a few months ago and never found the time to return to them, even-though I really need to. To many blog tours unfortunately were booked in (I’ve since cut down). I like the sound of ‘The Fifth Assassin’ not heard of the other books.

    School can be such a drag on your reading time. I always feel brave when I finally admit a book is not for me and firmly put it in my DNF pile – it is something I would never have done a year ago and I find it quite freeing. I really didn’t enjoy The Feminine Mystique so you have my support with that one! Have a great week and the best of luck with finals.
