WWW Wednesday, 6-January-2021

6 Jan

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, nothing new with Lateral Thinking by Edward de Bono. This will be here a while and I’m really okay with that, no big rush.
I’ve just started Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and am liking it a lot so far! My book club meets next week to talk about it so I don’t think I’ll finish in time, but I’ll get as far as I can and still plan to attend the discussion.
I’ve just begun A Pale View of Hills by Kazuo Ishiguro as well. This is a shorter book so I’m hoping to get through it pretty quickly. I’ve loved and hated Ishiguro books before so I don’t know how this one will go.

Recently finished: I finished A Burnable Book by Bruce Holsinger at 7:30PM on New Year’s Eve to finish my 2020 When Are You Reading? Challenge! It was a close one to be sure. I’m telling myself it won’t be as close in 2021. I gave the book Three out of Five Stars and posted my review yesterday if you want to check it out.
I started trying to re-normalize my sleep schedule before going back to work and would wake up and lie in bed reading Hum if You Don’t Know the Words by Bianca Marais until my husband woke up. It helped me finish it pretty quickly! I plan to post a review soon. I gave the book Four out of Five Stars.

Reading next: I should be better about my book club selections so I’m sure I’ll start one of those next. My next read is The Bear by Andrew Krivak. I read just the first sentence of the summary and this one sounds great. I’m excited to get into it soon.


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.
