WWW Wednesday, 18-November-2020

18 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?

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: Again, no progress with Lateral Thinking by Edward de Bono, sorry to say. I hoped to get back to reading during lunch, but I turned to outdoor walks instead which has been lovely and I’m not sure I’ll change it, to be honest.
I got through one or two essays in Knitting Yarns by Ann Hood before putting it aside again to return to my Buddy Read
I’m about through the next section of The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger for my Buddy Read and we meet again tomorrow to talk about it. This is going faster than our past reads, I think because my Buddy is enjoying it so much. I’m not complaining!
I’m enjoying The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown and almost wishing I had a commute to help me enjoy it! Well, I’m not wishing too hard for that.

Recently finished: Nothing this week. I’m optimistic about next week but it honestly doesn’t look that good, either.

Reading next: I’m excited to start A Burnable Book by Bruce Holsinger so I’m hopeful it will be soon! It’s the last book to finish my challenge, which is making me all the more eager to start it.


Leave a comment with your link and 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.

      Mixed so far. The style is very unique and I can see how someone would find it off putting. I don’t like the narrator so that’s making it hard to enjoy. But it’s interesting and easy for me to keep reading. Happy Wednesday!
