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? This has been a pitiful week for reading for me. We have been very busy traveling all over the country, to Hvar at the end of last week and to Zagreb and Istra the past couple of days. On top of that Parrot and Olivier in America by Peter Carey has not turned out to be as exciting as I had hoped. I am having a tough time getting through it. I am about half way now. Hopefully by next week I will be finished. I have also started The Blue Notebook by James Levine. This is the third book for the August Social Justice Challenge on Illiteracy and Education. I am hoping that reading this will help break up the Peter Carey book for me.
What did you recently finish reading? The only thing new I read last week was Nasreen’s Secret School by Jeanette Winter. This is a wonderful children’s book about a little girl in Afghanistan whose Grandmother finds a way to send her to school amidst the chaos. This book was another for the Social Justice Challenge. I plan to have the review posted on Friday. In addition, I posted a review yesterday for Promoting Reading in Developing Countries by the International Reading Association.
What do you think you’ll read next? My goal for August is to get through the above books as well as the last remaining book for the Social Justice Challenge, Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson.
