WWW Wednesdays

MizB of Should Be Reading sponsors this weekly event so we can share what we're reading!

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?

Currently Reading:

Dracula by Bram Stoker

Roots by Alex Haley

The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Graheme

Recently Finished:

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
I read this for 3 challenges: Wordsworth Classics, Celebrate the Author, and 1001 Books You Must Read. It's the story of a handsome young man who has his portrait painted and finds that the portrait ages but he does not. It takes place over many years and he still looks the same age as he was when the portrait was painted. It presents some interesting ideas such as what would you do, how would you act if you knew that you would never age. Also had some tones of Edgar Allan Poe.

Coming Up:

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift


  1. How did you like The Picture of Dorian Gray? I saw the movie version a while back but haven't read the book yet. I think I would like to one of these days. Happy Reading!

  2. Some of my favourites here - Dracula, Wind in the Willows, Dorian Gray and Gulliver's Travels are all books I've loved. Happy reading!

  3. I haven't read Dorian Gray but my sister has a copy she bought at an indie bookstore in Toronto with a beautiful cover. I should go steal it from her sometime!
