WWW Wednesday is a book meme run by Taking on a World of Words.
Each week we’re asked three questions –
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
What are you currently reading?
I started up Rob Chernow’s Alexander Hamilton last night, and despite its 800 pages I think it’ll be a quick read. Historical biographies can be sluggish sometimes, but from what I’ve seen so far the writing style is really quick and engaging. I’ve also started up on The Way of Kings again. Especially in the wake of the Martin “whoops I missed more deadlines!” post… I need substitute fantasy series. I’ve already spent half my life waiting on Song of Ice and Fire titles. The masochism must end!
What did you recently finish reading?
So much! I started the year with The Color of Magic, followed it up with 1491, and then finished Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness last night. I’m still collecting my thoughts on that one, classics will do that to a person. Review should be along tomorrow.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I’m currently tangled in close to 2,000 words worth of book, so I’m not sure if I’ll finish anything in the next week. However, I have been eyeing up the copy of Persepolis sitting on my shelf at work, which would be a nice, short detour and would not break my self-imposed January rule of “don’t buy any books.”
