4 Nov

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: I’ve been making steady progress with The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare on audio. Without commuting, I’m getting creative with my listening time and have utilized going to the gym to get a lot in. I should have this book wrapped up next week.
I surprised myself by finishing my ebook! I grabbed Lateral Thinking by Edward de Bono for my next read. I like the idea of teaching creative thinking and I wonder if it will help me with writing at all.
I pushed to finish my physical book as well and was able to start Knitting Yarns by Ann Hood on Friday. It’s a nice collection of essays and while it’s not overly gripping, I’m moving forward through it well. With the cooler weather, I’m thinking more about knitting and this has gotten me in the mood for it.

Recently finished: My final push to finish Running with a Police Escort by Jill Grunenwald was successful! Hearing Grunenwald’s story was good for me right now as I feel a drop off in running coming with the winter months. I’ll probably switch to swimming, but her motivation will carry over and I hope I can keep it up. My review for the book will be up tomorrow.
I got caught up in The Millionaires by Brad Meltzer and finished that on Friday as well. It was a good day for me! I was a bit disappointed in the ending which seemed to fall a bit flat, but it was a fun ride along the way. Meltzer is a good place for me to turn when I need a book to pick me up. My review will be up early next week.

Reading next: I still plan to read A Burnable Book by Bruce Holsinger but it doesn’t look like it will be my next audiobook due to some book club demands.
My book club decided on reading The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown. I can’t believe I haven’t read this one yet after all the good press it’s gotten. I’m excited to dive in soon and see what the hype is about.
