To play along with this weekly book event, hosted by Should Be Reading, 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? I decided to give Leviathan, by Scott Westerfeld, a try as I’ve heard so many people talk about it. So far it has been pretty good. It’s a genre I haven’t read before, but I may look for some similar books after I’ve finished this one. I’m open to recommendations! I’ll probably read the other two books in this series as well. I’m reading Bread and Wine: Readings for Lent and Easter for the umpteenth time. It’s the book I generally turn to at this time of year during my journey to Easter and beyond. It includes selections from quite a few of my favourite writers, including G.K. Chesterton, Frederick Buechner, Philip Yancey, C.S. Lewis, and many others. I look forward to getting into it again.
What did you recently finish reading? It has been a slow time of reading recently, although I have a number of books on the go that I plan on finishing soon! The only book I have finished this past week is A Complicated Kindness by Miriam Toews. This was the first one of her books that I have read and will hopefully not be the last. There are so many Canadian authors whose books I haven’t read that I could spend all my time just reading them. I won’t, of course, but I do intend reading more of them than I have.
What do you think you’ll read next? I borrowed a couple of books from the library at the weekend that are both part of my 2012 Reading Challenges. Hopefully I’ll get them both read before they are due back on March 10. The first one is Surfacing by Margaret Atwood. The other is The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch.
