WWW Wednesday, 16-December-2020

16 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: Nothing new with Lateral Thinking by Edward de Bono. I know I’ll get back to it eventually so I’m trying not to worry about it much.
My reading buddy and I had our second-to-last meeting about The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger yesterday. So I’m pushing through to the end! I’m excited to wrap this up this week and have a review up soon.
I made some big progress with A Burnable Book by Bruce Holsinger after a long drive to the doctor’s office last week. I’m a lot more optimistic that I’ll finish it this year now.
I started a new physical book this week and picked up A Pale View of Hills by Kazuo Ishiguro. I’m a big fan of a few Ishiguro works but he can be hit or miss with me. Let’s hope this one is a hit.

Recently finished: I wrapped up Golden Glow by Kaitlin Sandeno and Dan D’Addona on Sunday which means I’ve now read all the autographed books on my shelf! Once book events can happen again, I know I’ll fail at this again but for now, it’s a good feeling. I plan to have a review up next week.

Reading next: My library has reopened and I’m still waiting on the inter-library loan of Hum if You Don’t Know the Words by Bianca Marais. Fingers crossed!
I’ll need an audiobook soon so I’m going to pick up Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. This is a book club pick for January so I want to give myself plenty of time to wrap it up.


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.
