2 Dec

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: Is anyone surprised I haven’t touched Lateral Thinking by Edward de Bono? Because I’m not. As the weather gets nasty, maybe I’ll stay in and read during my lunch breaks.
My buddy and I meet tomorrow to talk about The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger so I’ll be pushing forward with this one again soon!
I started Golden Glow by Kaitlin Sandeno and Dan D’Addona over the weekend. Too early to say so far what I think, but I love a good sports biography so I’m just excited to be back to the topic.
I’ve finally started A Burnable Book by Bruce Holsinger! This is a long audiobook and I know I’m in for the long haul so I’m strapping down, determined to finish this during December to complete my reading challenge.

Recently finished: I finished Knitting Yarns by Ann Hood over the weekend and even had time to review it. My review was posted yesterday. I gave the book Three out of Five Stars.
I finished The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown just in time! It was a bit of a race but I was ready for our book club discussion on Monday. I’ll likely post a review and a book club reflection next week or soon after.

Reading next: It’s hard to say. Maybe it’s best that I don’t? I don’t have a plan and with me being so early in my books, it’s hard to predict what I’ll want to pick up next. I’ll stay quiet here this week.


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.

    Looking forward to your take on Catcher in the Rye. I’m revisiting a classic this week, too. I guess both of my books can be considered classics of their genres, but the second one is lighter than air. (Nothing wrong with that every now and then.)

    I’m listening to my last book for your When Are You Reading Challenge? It’s a history book and I can’t say I’m enjoying but it’s only a few hours long and the narrators are good.

    I know what you mean about having a plan. Most of the time it’s really hard to predict, except for right now, when I’m reading a bunch of series. So, of course, I will probably read the next book if I can get my hands on it. Unless something shiny walks by and I get distracted (that happens a lot too.)

      I don’t think so, this isn’t a novel. She has a novel called The Knitting Circle which might be what your thinking of. This was an anthology of stories from other writers. Happy reading!

    I need to pick up some of the classics again. Everyone has some great reads going. I haven’t read Catcher in the Rye in decades. My book reading took a nosedive last month due to my family having so many dr appts. It took me almost a month to read one book and I was averaging a book a day! LOL! Hopefully I can get back on track. =)
