WWW WEDNESDAYS

img_1384-0WWW Wednesdays originally started by MizB at Daily Rhythm is now hosted by Taking on a World of Words. It answers the following W questions:

WHAT are you currently reading?

WHAT have you finished recently?

WHAT will you read next?

I will add, WHAT have you watched?

I am currently reading The Splendid and the Vile shopping-1.jpeg by Erik Larson. I am pretty sure it will have to be returned to the library by May 4th, so I may have to request it again. It has been great, Brazoria County Library System, to have this book for so long, but grading final papers has arrived, so I may have to let someone else have their turn before finishing it.

I am re-reading Bob Goff’s Everybody Always and finding good advice I totally missed the first time. Also I am still savoring the quotable “pieces” in Mark Nepo’s Things That Join the Earth and the Sea. I have used some of the more poetic sections as the day’s poem (on PWR and Literacy and Me) during April, National Poetry Month.

I have finished shopping.jpeg  as well as my “I” selection for the 2020 Alphabet Soup Challenge, Robert Inman’s Old Dogs and Children, which will be reviewed on this site shortly. I have also finished blogging friend, Ritu Bhathal”s Marriage Unarranged, which I will also review soon.

Carla at Carla Loves to Read recommended a new author with whom I have fallen in love,  Kristan Higgins, and I have just finished her Good Luck with That. I am scrambling to meet my goal of reading 20 books recommended by fellow bloggers in 2020.

I am so far behind on grading (This happens at the end of the semester every time because I am a soft touch when it comes to granting extensions on due dates.) and behind on reading (There simply are not enough hours in the day!) that I have no expectations on what to read next.

I am adding the category of what I have watched to recommend the film, The Zookeeper’s Wife and the PBS series A World on Fire. Both are outstanding entertainment.

Until next time, HAPPY READING!
