WWW Wednesdays

I missed this last week so this post actually covers two weeks' time.

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?


Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
Julie of the Wolves by Jean Craighead George

Recently Finished

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
I read this for two challenges: 1001 Books You Must Read and Wordsworth Classics. I enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more by Bronte.

Watership Down by Richard Adams
"Finished" as in "as good as I'm going to right now". I just couldn't finish this...I have always wanted to read this and didn't make it beyond halfway. So...I had to make a "new" 1972 choice for the Century Challenge and am now reading Julie of the Wolves.

If you Ask Me (Which of course, you won't) by Betty White
I read this for my "I" choice for the A-Z challenge and also for the Memorable Memoirs challenge. I got this book for Mother's Day because I love anything Golden Girls-related. This was a quick and funny read.

Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier
I read this as my Gem or Jewel Choice for the What's in a name 4 Challenge. It has been on my TBR list for awhile, mostly because I am intrigued with the cover. I had always thought it would be somewhat heavy reading and avoided it! Big mistake! I found it at Goodwill for 99 cents and decided to give it a chance and I am so glad I did! It's the "story" of the painter Vermeer and his inspiration for the painting of the same name.

Coming Up

The Book Thief
by Markus Zusak
The Reader by Bernhard Schlink
