WWW Wednesdays (Mar.21)

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?

I have finally started (and am almost three-fourths through) Into the Wild by Jon Krakuaer.  It is a fascinating, if not uncomfortable, story of a young man’s escapade that lead to his untimely death.  Worth checking out, though.  

• What did you recently finish reading?

Another one that’s been at the top of my “tbr” list for awhile now, but now I’ve finished, is Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood.  Even though I hate to make the comparison, I didn’t like it quite as much as Oryx & Crake.  Who knows, sometimes I change my mind after fully absorbing it later, and I’ll probably read MaddAddam #3 when it’s done.

• What do you think you’ll read next?

Since I have only my Kindle with me today and can’t finish “Into the Wild,” I’ll probably start “Veronika Decides to Die” by Paulo Coelho.  I just found out that it’s the second in a trilogy (what’s up with that?), so I hope it stands alone without having read the first one.
Maybe I will borrow “The Book Thief” on my Kindle soon since I keep bumping it’s #1 slot on my reading list.
Ever thankful to MizB at Should be Reading blog!

    • Apparently there was a fairly recent movie done of “Into the Wild.” Depressing but very amazing story.

      And I’ve heard sooo many people say they love “The Book Thief.” I’m borrowing it on my Kindle ASAP. 😉

      • I don’t think I’d be able to sit through the film- I’m one of those really annoying weepy people who sobs through anything sad or scary.

        🙂 Are you able to borrow books from your library or are you doing that through a website?

      • I also get that huge lump in my throat, which I hate, just before the tears start to flow. Mainly I borrow books from friends, the library, or my fellow-Kindle-owner friend. She and I have similar book taste, and I borrowed the entire Hunter Games trilogy from her on Kindle!

    • I’m making myself read the book first before I rent the redbox. People have suggested reading “127 Hours” before seeing the movie, too. Funny, I can’t get through that movie without cringing and turning it off.

  1. I didn’t realize Veronika was part of a series, either. Into the Wild was intense, I thought. Will you watch the film?

    • Yes, I saw just yesterday that Veronika is the second in a series. I’m actually looking forward to watching the “Into the Wild” film but will probably get that gut wrenching, sore throat, about-to-cry feeling that always leads me to ask why I put myself through it!

  2. I haven’t read any of those, although I almost picked up a used copy of Into The Wild recently. I probably should have, because it was 50 cents and it is probably gone by now. Thanks for visiting my blog earlier.
