WWW Wednesday, 25-November-2020

25 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: This has been a week of no change. I still haven’t opened Lateral Thinking by Edward de Bono. I guess it didn’t grab me in the first few pages and I haven’t given it a fair try again since.
I keep moving forward with Knitting Yarns by Ann Hood but I’m not near finishing it yet. If I’m optimistic, next week?
I’ve finished our next section in The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger and we’ll pick up and talk about it again after the holiday. I’m liking it OK so far. I’m not won over, but I’m not disliking it either.
I’m now in a race to finish The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown. My book club meets on Monday so I’ll be pushing to finish it this weekend!

Recently finished: I’ve got a better feeling about next week. Fingers are crossed.

Reading next: I honestly can’t wait to start A Burnable Book by Bruce Holsinger. I’m optimistic I’ll have it started next week. I really want to finish the reading challenge!
I’ll probably need a physical book next. Reading during quarantine has been a great time to get through signed books that I don’t want leaving my house. The next one on my list is the last of my backlog. I guess I’ve got to get to some author events as soon as I can! The book is Golden Glow by Kaitlin Sandeno and Dan D’Addona. I love my swimming books, so I’m pumped to get to this.


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.

    Maybe Edward de Bono’s writing is better in the form of a course rather than a book? Here’s my link for this week: https://thesecretlibrarysite.wordpress.com/2020/11/25/www-wednesdays-25-11-20-wwwwednesdays-with-that-gif%f0%9f%98%89/

    I’ve never read Catcher in the Rye. I should, I know. It’s such an iconic book. But I admit I’ve never even been tempted to pick it up. I’m watching your reaction to it.

    This week, I finished a big new biography, picked up a slim classic mystery, and tossed aside some chick-lit that just didn’t grab me.
