3 Nov

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.


Ghost

Currently reading: Nothing again with The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. We’re traveling this weekend and I’ll read this instead of a physical book if I get a spare second so maybe there will be some movement this week?
I think I read two pages from True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey, so that’s something! Baby is starting to go to bed easier so I might be able to get back to this soon.
I have made good progress on The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda. I’m running more consistently which gives me good listening time. Though running in the dark and listening to this does make me jumpy!

Recently finished: Nothing this week. Probably not next week either. Eventually.

Reading next: It will be an audiobook, I can almost guarantee. I’m only a quarter through my current one so I have time to figure it out. I’ll decide next week.

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’m glad you’re taking advantage of your running/listening time. I’ve been thinking of choosing an audiobook to keep me company as I do my grocery shopping and wait in that checkout line.

    This week I’ve got a biography and a thriller that seems to have been popular with everyone but me. 😦

      I’ve done audiobooks at the grocery and it’s really nice! Especially if the check out lines get long lol. Happy reading!

    I’m currently only reading one book as I am a bit behind on my list of books that I have said that I will read and post reviews for and find that if I divide my attention it will take longer.
    I have a toddler so my reading time is limited and even more so now that he doesn’t nap as often! I haven’t tried audio books because I get too distracted by other things!

        One day 🤣😂 to be fair when William was little he would sleep for hours on and off. The problem was that I was so tired that reading wasn’t for me🙄

        Happy reading to you too ☺️

      I’m with you on audiobooks. I find I have to concentrate on that and nothing else so I usually listen in bed before I go to sleep.

        I’m glad I’m not the only one! I find just sitting and listening so hard these days. When I was at school I was fine, at work I was fine, but since having a baby (now a 3 year old!) nope, I need words or something physical for me to concentrate on 😶

    I try to choose a lighthearted podcast or book when I’m walking the dog in the dark to avoid getting spooked, but I hope the Megan Miranda book is worth the occasional shiver.

    Yay for baby sleeping a bit better! Those early months are so hard and being sleep deprived definitely doesn’t help. Glad you were able to get some reading in though. Hope you have a great week!

    I have yet to get into ebooks. I never enjoyed being read to once I learned how to read for myself and it feels a bit too similar to me. My Other loves audiobooks during his commutes so maybe he’ll sway me eventually.
