WWW Wednesdays (June 13)

Thanks to MizB at Should be Reading for this weekly meme!

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?

A short book I’ve borrowed from a friend is 420 Characters by Lou Beach.  It began as a project from Facebook “status” posts (hence, 420 characters).  Very clever concept.

Embarrassing to say, but I’m also still reading We Need to Talk about Kevin by Lionel Shriver (heavy and slow) and listening to Sellevision by Augusten Burroughs.

What did you recently finish reading?

As per my previous shame-faced admission, I count children’s books in my overall read “count.”  Instead of regurgitating what I said last week, I’ll thrown in a couple kid titles.  My son and I just finished reading The Adventures of Baby Jaimie: Baby Jaimie Gets Stage Fright by Leigh Anne Lagoe and The Sneezing Christmas Tree, which were both cute little bits o’ fluff read with a five-year-old.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Even though my current “tbr” list stood at 420 (how serendipitous), I just added Smoke & Mirrors by Neil Gaiman when I picked it up at the library today.  He’s one of my faves!  So I will most likely start on it next.

Looks like Uglies by Scott Westerfeld is going on the back burner.  There’s, unfortunately, a pattern building here.
