WWW Wednesday – June 2, 2021 – #wwwwednesday #bookishmemes

Welcome to a new week of WWW Wednesday! This meme is hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. In it, we answer three questions and leave a link in the comments sharing our own posts for other bloggers to view.

The three W’s are:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you just finish reading?
  • What will you read next?

What am I currently reading?

One of these books you will recognize. The Absolute Book is a long audiobook. In excess of 18 hours, it has taken me more than a week to get through this one in the sporadic snatches of time I’m able to steal for it. I’ve been much more productive in physical book form, which is a change for me. Usually I tear through audiobooks and plod along with physical books. I’m enjoying The Absolute Book, but I’m also getting to the point I’m ready to be done. For the story, it drones on a bit, and I’m not quite sure that’s necessary. I am getting close to finishing, and I expect to be done either today or tomorrow if I hole up and shelve some pocket parts in the library and listen while I work.

I have just started The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie, which is the debut novel both for the author and for her famous detective, Hercule Poirot. So far I have a couple of chapters under my belt, but it’s a quick read so I don’t see it taking me more than 2-3 days to finish.

What have I recently finished reading?

Over the weekend, I finished Homegoing, which was positively superb and I’m in mourning over the fact that it’s over. I posted my review for it yesterday, so if you’d like to read my thoughts, you may do so here: Homegoing: a Book Review.

Last night, I also finished Nothing to See Here by Kevin Wilson, and I’ll be working on my review to get it posted either today or tomorrow. This is one is a super short read that I started Monday evening and finished on Tuesday evening.

What Will you Read Next?

Ah, the age old question that I usually get wrong. Though let’s take a moment to celebrate the fact that I actually stuck to my plan from last week’s WWW Wednesday. I did, in fact, read both the books I said I would read next!

Of course, like the true addict I am, I visited the library yesterday to turn in one book and walked out with four more.

I know, I know. However, I need to get moving on the book club selection for Read Between the Wines, which is American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins. So once I finish the Christie book, I will most definitely be starting that one. On audio, I have no idea. I will be a bit of a free agent in that regard. I want to start one recommended by my sister, AntKind, by Charlie Kaufman. I’m not sure I’ll pick it up immediately, however, as it is also a long book and seems a bit complex and unnerving. I may need a buffer between The Absolute Book and that. We shall see.

What are you reading at the moment? Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to reading your posts. Happy Reading!
