12 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!

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.


0451498631.01._SCLZZZZZZZ_SX500_

Currently reading: I was able to keep going with The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson again. I have to keep reminding myself that I’d rather read than scroll Instagram and it seems to be working!
Nothing again in True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. Print doesn’t seem to be a good medium for me right now. I’m not sure when I’ll get back to it again but I hope it’s not too long!
I was able to listen to a little bit from The Ghosts of Eden Park by Karen Abbott. I’ve recovered from my cold and was able to start doing a little running, though it’s tough with how cold it’s been here! A warm Sunday let me get outside for a bit which was great.

Recently finished: I’m optimistic. Next week?

Reading next: I want to read Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie soon! I enjoy the narrator for this series a lot and I’m hoping it continues.

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 always end up spending more time scrolling social media than I think I’m going to. I should follow your example and be more mindful about use of that downtime.

    I keep uninstalling different social media apps from my phone just so I don’t have the constant distraction so easily available. It takes a lot more effort to pull everything up on the kindle or laptop somehow!

    I missed last week so here’s a whole lot :
