WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesday May 15, 2019

It’s Wednesday again, folks! (Although it doesn’t feel like a Wednesday, because Wednesday is usually my grocery shopping day, and I can’t grocery shop today because my daughter is sick. AGAIN. Third time since the last weekend in March. It’s just a virus, but she sounds terrible when she coughs, and we were up most of last night. *yawn*) Let’s get down to business! WWW Wednesday is a superfun bookish meme, hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words (hi Sam!), that’s all about answering these three questions:

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

Here we go!

What are you currently reading?

Being an insufferable language nerd, when I heard about In Other Words by Jhumpa Lahiri, I knew I had to read it. She spent twenty years studying Italian and then moved to Italy with her family in order to further her study of the language. She wrote this book entirely in Italian; it was translated into English by a professional. How cool is that??? I just started it yesterday and haven’t had too much time to read (again, daughter is sick!), but I’m liking it so far.

What did you recently finish reading?

Just the Way You Are by Ann Roth. I definitely have some thoughts on this book, so I’ll have my review up tomorrow.

What do you think you’ll read next?

One of these! I don’t often go to the library without a list, and these were what were on my list on my last trip (along with the Jhumpa Lahiri book). I don’t tend to read my library books in any certain order; I know I want to get to all of them, so when I’m done with one, I just tend to pick up the next one in a stack. Of course, sometimes there’ll be one I’m absolutely dying to read and that goes straight to the top. 😉

And that’s it! What are you reading this week???

  1. Really like the sound of the Jhumpa Lahiri book – she’s an author I’ve been meaning to read for a while but haven’t got round to yet!

    1. I read and enjoyed The Namesake years ago, but haven’t gotten around to reading more by her until now. This book has her Italian writing on one side of the page and the English translation on the other. It’s pretty amazing! 🙂
