W…W…W…Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be 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?
What are you currently reading? I’m just finishing up A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith. I somehow got sidetracked in the middle of this novel and went on to another book. I’m not really sure why, because it is a wonderful story. Anyway, it’s ended up taking me a couple days longer than usual to get through it. This is turning out to be a beautiful coming-of-age story with some of the most enchanting characters I have encountered to date. I wouldn’t be surprised if Francie Nolan becomes my new favorite literary character.
What did you recently finish reading? I just finished reading The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. This was the book that somehow lulled me away from my Betty Smith novel. I am not in the habit of reading multiple books at a time, but this just sort of happened by accident. Fitzgerald’s novella will certainly be a classic that I look on favorably in the future, if for no other reason than it was short. Look for a review on Friday.
What do you think you’ll read next? My next read is going to be Promoting Reading in Developing Countries by the International Reading Association. While it doesn’t sound like the most exciting title, I am really looking forward to it. This will be my first read for the August Social Justice Challenge on Illiteracy and Education. This will also be the first challenge I have taken part in, so I am really excited.
