WWW Wednesday! March 20, 2019

It’s Wednesday, so that means it’s time for another fun WWW Wednesday, hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. To play along, just answer three questions:

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

Let’s get started!

What are you currently reading?

Yesterday, I picked up my interlibrary loan copy of Make Do and Mend: Keeping Family and Home Afloat on War Rations (foreword by Jill Norman). It’s a book of WWII-era reproductions of government-issued leaflets designed to teach the women on the homefront to make their clothing last longer (since clothing was rationed during the war years). My mother was up visiting yesterday and my son had a choir concert last night, so I only got about ten minutes yesterday to read, but this book seems really neat so far and I’ve already learned something about making hand-knit socks last longer.

What did you recently finish reading?

Yesterday, I finished Apocalypse Chow: How to Eat Well When the Power Goes Out by Jon Robertson and Robin Robertson. Review will be up tomorrow!

What do you think you’ll read next?

Next up in the pile is The Cider House Rules by John Irving. I’ve wanted to read this for YEARS, so I’m so excited. I very vaguely remember seeing parts of the movie when I was younger, so I may have to seek that out after I finish this book (is it any good, or should I avoid it?). I do have a copy of Angie Thomas’s On the Come Up on hold at the library, so if that comes in, I’ll read that as soon as possible so that I can get it back and it can go to the next person on the list. (I try to be courteous with popular holds!)

That’s it for this WWW Wednesday! What are you reading right now? Anything interesting coming up next?

      1. I’m so excited for it too! I’ve been trying not to just go out and buy it for the last month, because I put myself on a book buying ban. I should have postponed the ban until after February. Ugh! Hope you get it soon!
