WWW Wednesday, 5-January-2022

5 Jan

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!

IMG_1384-0

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: I read a few chapters in The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson this week! I kept reminding myself to read instead of scrolling pictures in Instagram I’d already seen and it seems to help. Let’s see if I can keep it up.
Still nothing with True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey but I’m optimistic it’s coming soon. Baby has been self-soothing to bed better which may leave some down time before I turn the lights out in the next few weeks. Let’s hope it continues!
Nothing much with The Ghosts of Eden Park by Karen Abbott. I got sick and haven’t been able to run or drive anywhere while I recover. Thankfully, I’m feeling much better so I hope this moves forward soon!

Recently finished: I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.

Reading next: I still plan to start with Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie so I’ll have some historical fiction to start my year. This fun series will give me some welcome smiles, too.

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 try to keep my scrolling limited to one platform at a time so Instagram is my poison lately. I find Facebook can be worse. Happy reading!

    I tried to stop scrolling Instagram and read and it worked for a while 😂 I also need to curb the other media as well!

    Yay for self soothing! My son goes to sleep with his dad in the room so that’s when I get my reading done – it was a nightmare when he was mummy only 😂🤣

    Happy New Year and here’s to more reading – somehow 😂
