WWW Wednesday, 22-December-2021

22 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?

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: Maybe when we travel this week I’ll pick up The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. I don’t think I’ll get to it because we’ll be busy seeing family, but there’s an outside chance?
I didn’t read a page from True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I was doing better with books when Baby was born but now that they go to sleep a little faster, I’m sacrificing reading time for sleep. I think most parents would agree that’s a good trade off.
I’m still moving in The Ghosts of Eden Park by Karen Abbott  and hope to make some more moves this week! I’m enjoying this one a lot and I see the climax coming soon.

Recently finished: Maybe next week? I’ll be optimistic.


Reading next: I still plan on Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie and I’m hoping to start it before the end of the year, but nothing’s for sure yet.

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.

    Sleep before reading every time with a wee one. Books aren’t going anywhere, but good sleep is a finite resource.

      I miss my books, though! I know it’s the right choice but sometimes it’s hard. Happy reading!

    An outside chance of reading, and seeing family, seems pretty great! Here’s my answers: https://writingcrazyme.blogspot.com/2021/12/www-wednesday-558-december-22nd.html
