WWW Wednesday is the post I look forward to every week and it is the last one of the year! Thanks, as always to Sam @ Taking on a World of Words and this wonderful WWW post to keep me going. If you want to join me, just answer the three questions below about how your reading is going this week and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to admire. Don’t forget to check all the other participants. It is the #1 way I keep my TBR overflowing!
WHAT AM I CURRENTLY READING?
I got a copy of Jane in Love from the library and I cannot put it down! The story of Jane Austen accidentally traveling through time to 2020 is a weird concept but Rachel Givney has really captured what I thought Austen would sound like so seeing her experience modern conveniences has been delightful fun. I cannot wait to see what’s in store in this book.
I am nearly finished with D-Day Girls. I regret putting it down at all since keeping track of the many characters and their aliases is difficult enough without letting the information sit for a week.
I started an audiobook of Off the Clock by Laura Vanderkam. While I find myself intrigued by the notion of time awareness and management, I would really like to get to the practical application part of the book and out of anecdote land.
Finally, I have just cracked into Thank You for Arguing by Jay Heinrichs. This is my January book club pick and I want to get a crack on my reading.
WHAT DID I RECENTLY FINISH READING?
I finished the second in Matt Haig’s Christmas books, The Girl Who Saved Christmas and what a delight. I love it so much I am going to read the next one even though Christmas is done.
I also finished The Professor and the Madman: A Tale of Murder, Insanity, and the Making of the Oxford English Dictionary by Simon Winchester. This was such an interesting look at the the two men who were the major individual contributors to the OED, both incredibly intelligent but one criminally insane.
WHAT WILL I READ NEXT?
As I said, I want to read Matt Haig’s third Christmas book, Father Christmas and Me. As soon as I finish D-Day Girls I’m going to start Three Ordinary Girls by Tim Brady. I just cannot get enough of the female spies.
Tell me, please! What’s on your WWW?
