WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesday: November 13, 2019

This week has been too long already so I’m doubly thrilled that it is Wednesday. Not only are we half way through the week but it is also time for my favorite meme of them all, WWW Wednesday! If you want to join it – please do! Just answer the following questions:

What did you just Finish Reading?

What are you Currently Reading?

What will you Read Next?

Thanks (as always) goes to Sam @ Taking on a World of Words for taking the time to host the meme that keeps me as organized as possible.


What Did I Just Finish Reading?

I am having a wonderful time focusing on my giant stack of nonfiction books for NonFiction November!

I finished Snacks: A Canadian Food History.  It was excellent and a true test of my healthy eating plan. Thankfully, most of the snacks highlighted are only available to ship from Canada at an exorbitant rate but the next time I am there I plan on buying all the Old Dutch chips, Cheezies, and locally made chocolates. Yum. My review should be up either today or tomorrow.

The Time Chunking Method by Damon Zahariades was a fast read (less than an hour) and has some good tips and tricks for getting things done. None of the information was new to me as it relies on the Pomodoro technique that I’ve been using for years. But if you are looking to increase productivity, this is a great primer on one way to get stuff done.

I also finished Glorious Freedom: Older Women Leading Extraordinary Lives by Lisa Congdon. I love this book and the premise is so freeing: there is never a time when it is too late to start a working on your dream. You can read my full review here.

I also read Beard Necessities by Penny Reid and Geektastic by Mary Frame. Both are authors that I adore and both books were wonderful! If you are in the market for a new contemporary romance author – I highly recommend both of these.


What am I Currently Reading?

I offer my formal apology to The Heart Forger by Ron Chupeco. I was reading this book in October and I got so excited about my nonfiction stuff I put it aside. But, if I have time to read new romance books, I have time to finish this story! I hope to complete it this week.

As expected, I’m still working through Hand Reading. This is the longest and most details palmistry book I own and I just want to finish it by the end of 2019.

I am reading and listening to Black Countthe story of the real Count of Monte Cristo. The audiobook is really helping me keep the pace with this historically rich adventure and I am almost 30% into it.

Finally, this morning I started Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. This is one of my 2019 Resolutions and, gulp, the year is really starting to close in on me.

Sadly, the library demanded Haben back before I could finish it. I put my name back on the list through because I really want to know her story.


What Will I Read Next?

I have a stack of nonfiction left to choose from and these are on top. I’m especially drawn to Have You Eaten Grandma? because I could use all the punctuation help in the world and look at the cute Grandma!


Tell me, please!

What’s on your WWW?

  2. I literally just finished Empire of the Summer Moon, which is on my WWW Wednesday as well! I hope to write a book review this week about it. It was really good! Amazing what happened during that time! I honestly don’t know why people were bringing their families to the West with all those raids and wars going on! The Comanche tribe was an astounding tribe that was harsh and mean but did it to survive, which worked for a long time! I hope you enjoy it!
