WWW Wednesday, 27-June-2018

27 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: I think I made it through one chapter of The Post-Birthday World by Lionel Shriver. I’ve been studying during lunch when I can and finally got back to it some today. I’m really enjoying this book and its unusual format so I look forward to reading more when I can.
Still waiting on the hold of Dreams of Joy by Lisa See to come back. Sigh.
I didn’t finish The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan before the book club meeting and ended up skipping it in order to study a bit more. I felt bad, but I wasn’t sure how much I’d get out of the discussion if I was only a bit over half-way through it.
With all my driving to school, I’ve made great steps forward with The Fifth Assassin by Brad Meltzer. These books are fun and exciting but I do sometimes get frustrated feeling I’m kept in the dark. Toward the end, I’m sure everything will start to come together so I’m just looking forward to that.
Critical Chain by Eliyahu Goldratt has been a good read for me so far. I don’t read many business books because I’m usually trying to escape from B-School by reading, but Goldratt makes it all seem more fun by giving his stories a plot.

Recently finished: Let’s not talk about it. Maybe next week?

Reading Next: I’m not going to start Brainiac by Ken Jennings until I finish Friedan. I have to keep telling myself that since the book is so tempting right on my bedside table…
I forgot to cancel my hold on another car audiobook so I have The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan ready to go when I finish Meltzer. I think another week or so and I’ll be able to start this one.


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.

    I should pick up The Feminine Mystique again. I wonder how that “old school” feminism would look to me in this #MeToo world.

    I’ve got a serious biography and a lighter than air mystery this week.

    What’re you thinking of the Feminist Mystique so far? It’s something I’ve heard a lot about but don’t really know much about it, if you get me.

    Also this is my first time doing WWW Wednesday, so I’m super stoked!! My link is here: https://rlprotagonist.wordpress.com/2018/06/27/wwwweds-dinos-poirot-clinton/ As well as dinosaurs, Poirot and Clinton, there’s a lot of YA covered because ❤ YA, so to anyone who also is into YA please come say hi!!

        yeah, i thought it must be. i’m mostly wondering if it’s worth reading anyway as kind of like ‘this is what feminist theory was like at this time period’ kind of thing, but I’m also like… ‘would it just be depressing/annoying’? So IDK, I figure if it turns up in a charity shop I might grab it, but otherwise probably not.

        ❤ thank you!!

    Listening to audiobooks in the car sounds so relaxing, but also quite stressful if you get to a stressful or scary passage, haha x
    And the balance between suspense and being enjoyably keptin the dark, and the feeling of just being left in that darkness is such a fine one! Hope it picks up at the end for you!
