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?

Currently reading: I was able to start running again which means The King of Crows (Diviners #4) by Libba Bray is getting some play time! It feels great to get out, even if it’s just a mile for now. I decided I want to do a 5K on Thanksgiving so I’ll be keeping it up!
I found a chunk of time to read The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson when the Baby was sleeping so I’m moving forward with this still. Slow going, but it’s taken a turn that I’m excited to explore.
I started making some good progress on True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey again. I’m focusing on it now so I’m hoping this will continue to move forward. I’ve liked what I ready so far.

Recently finished: No surprise, nothing here.

Reading next: I’ll get to The Chocolate War by Robert Cormeir someday…

    How cool that you started running again, giving yourself two months to work up to 5K sounds like a good idea.

    I also wish you luck with the 5K! You’re always so great with attacking things in manageable chunks. I admire that! I think I read the first of the Diviners book but never thought about the rest of the series. Typical of me I’m afraid!

    I don’t know if this is something you would be interested in doing, but when my daughter was an infant I read what I was reading out loud to her while we cuddled. It gave me extra time to read and I feel like it helped with her development. I can’t say 100% that it had any difference, but she did speak early.
