1 Dec

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?

Ghost

Currently reading: I wish I could say I read something from The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson but I’d be lying. I did have a great week with Baby, so I’m not complaining!
Nothing more in True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I think we’re close to sleeping in different rooms so maybe I’ll be able to get a few pages each night once that happens. But I’m not rushing it, I love having all of us in one room!
I made progress in The Ghosts of Eden Park by Karen Abbott during my runs. Though, I do plan to slow those down a bit now that my Turkey Trot is over (it went great, by the way!). I still think audio will be my fastest format, but maybe not as fast as it was before.

Recently finished: Nothing new here this week but I’m not surprised. I’ll get some more books finished eventually.
I published my review of The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda on Monday so please check that out when you get a minute. I enjoyed it and gave the book Four out of Five Stars.

Reading next: I’m fairly certain I wont’ finish my reading challenge this year, but I’ll try! I’ll plan on picking up Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie as my next book. If I don’t finish it until after the new year, I’ll consider it a jump start on my 2022 challenge!

    My book group read that Peter Carey book but it was while I was in law school and not able to complete every selection. Should I try it again?

    Here is my WWW: https://perfectretort.blogspot.com/2021/12/www-wednesday-december-1.html

    The book that most satisfied me this week was the audio of Happiness for Beginners by Katherine Center which I listened to while commuting to work. Recommended!

      I’m liking it so far. It’s been such slow going with the Baby that I don’t remember what I’m reading very well but I do like the style he’s using. I think it’s worth a shot. Happy reading!

    Yay for good week with baby! The whole of my November seems to have been slower book wise and I think the fact that nap time is pretty much over and that he wants constant play attention is to blame! They are only small for such a short time though that I don’t really mind!

        Even if my son naps now (which is very rare seeing as he is 3) he still sleeps on me! We never made cot naps…

    Honestly, I would absolutely count the children’s books. I like my Goodreads because it reminds me of the books I read which, in turn, trigger the memory of what I was doing at the time. I know there is a special way to put them on your shelf so that they don’t count towards your yearly goal, if you want to do that. Reading is reading!

    Yeah for the run! I am always in awe of people that run and love to run. I have done it off and on through the years and taken all the tips but finally concluded it is just not for me. Enjoy yourself!

      I guess I was vague in my wording because I want to track them, just not count toward my goal for the year. I created a shelf, I’ve just been horrible at updating it. Happy reading!
