WWW Wednesday, 10-February-2021

10 Feb

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: Waiting for a lane at the pool is a thing again. So I’ve made decent progress with Lateral Thinking by Edward de Bono this week. I’m starting to swim a little more so I hope I can keep this up. I’m about 1/4 done.
I’m paused with Mil veces hasta siempre (Turtles All the Way Down) by John Green while I work through some library holds, but I’ll be coming back to it soon!
I started Say Nothing by Patrick Radden Keefe on audio and I’m loving it! I wish I’d read this before I visited Belfast in 2019 because I think it would have given me a lot more insight into the city (my focus was the Titanic museum and we didn’t have time for a Black Cab tour). This is for book club and I’ve got my fingers crossed that I finish it in time.
I got my hold of Writing Young Adult Fiction for Dummies by Deborah Halverson and I’m optimistic I’ll finish it before I have to return it in early March. The Dummies books tend to be pretty fast reads for me. I’m hoping this can help me get writing again, too. Or at least submitting.

Recently finished: I finished up Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie late last week and was able to post my review yesterday. I’ll have a delayed book club reflection up tomorrow. Please go check out my review and let me know what you think! I gave the book Four out of Five Stars.

Reading next: Nothing right now. I’m so early in all my books that it seems a bit to early to think ahead. I just hope I can finish them all in a timely manner. I do need a new Buddy Read if anyone has suggestions for that.

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.

    I’ve never read any John Green books, but I see them on so many lists I really should give them a try. My WWW list is on my blog https://liseysreads.wordpress.com/2021/02/10/www-wednesday-2-10-february-2021/ I finally finished listening to A Promised Land so need to choose my next audiobook for dogwalking, but as that one took me six weeks I think I’ll have a break and just listen to some music or comedy podcasts for the next couple of days.
