WWW Wednesday, 8-September-2021

8 Sep

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!


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: Right now, The King of Crows (Diviners #4) by Libba Bray is the only book I’m making much progress with. I try to get out for a 1-2 mile walk each day. Sometimes, my husband keeps the Baby and I’m able to listen which is a treat.
I think I finished a chapter of The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson but not much more than that. It’s moving pretty fast so I’m curious how long this book would take if I really dedicated some time to it. I might have to do an experiment this week.
I’ve been slacking with True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I have some early childhood books that I’m skimming and it’s taking time away from reading this one. I only grab enough time for a few pages before my eyes close so once I am dedicated to it, it may still be slow going.

Recently finished: Nothing again this week. I’m honestly not expecting anything for a while. Baby has really slowed me down!


Reading next: I’ll keep The Chocolate War by Robert Cormeir on the backburner. I’m sure I’ll get to it eventually!

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.

    So understand that the baby is slowing down your reading. Having a baby is not a piece of cake after all! Happy reading when you have time and energy to do so.

    I saw that subtle early childhood reading hidden into there! Reading books about your new role as a parent, reading all these books, and taking care of a new baby – all of this feels like your new triathlon. It will all eventually get done!

      This new triathlon has quite the learning curve! Feeding is our current focus. More to come I’m sure. Happy reading!

        It does indeed! I hope you are getting as much support as you deserve (which is loads!)

    Yay for getting some reading in with the new baby! I remember when mine was small – it was hard to do anything just for myself without feeling a bit guilty. It’s so important though. Being a new mom is exhausting, so you should always try to carve out just a little bit of time for your own well-being. Hope things are going well!

      Thank you. It’s a bit early to have a routine but once we do I’ll find places to squeeze in books. Happy reading!


  9. The Gal Herself September 8, 2021 at 8:30 AM #

    I’m impressed that you’re working reading into your new and obviously very busy schedule. I bet your baby is picking up on the idea that books are a part of life and will be a big reader, too.

    This week, I’ve got a sophisticated supernatural novel and a biography.


    • Sam September 8, 2021 at 2:24 PM #

      We hope so! We’ve only been able to read them a few books so far but they’re focusing better and will probably be more curious soon. Happy reading!

    Well done for managing to do some reading as well as walking everyday. Here’s my WWW for this week https://devoil.wordpress.com/2021/09/08/www-wednesday-8th-september/

    I was given The Chocolate War as a gift a few years ago and had immediately placed it on my unfavoured shelves. I think I’ll go back to it and see if my thoughts have changed! Best of luck and take care!
