WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. As a book lover I’m glad to take part. Here are my answers to the three “W’s”.
What are you currently reading?
I am LOVING my current book, “The Hounds and the Fury” by Rita Mae Brown. It’s a murder whodunit set among the people, hounds, horses and foxes of a Virginia hunt club. I adore how the author brings every aspect of fox hunting to life – it’s entering a different world. And as I’ve seen in other Rita Mae Brown books – the animals speak to each other, often more intelligently than the humans.
What did you recently finish reading?
I just finished the memoir “In the Valley of Achor” by Patricia Gaddis Brandon. This book made me appreciate how much I take my health for granted. Patricia lost the use of her legs overnight – one day an active person; the next, she couldn’t walk. The way she approached this incredible challenge and overcame this is a triumph. I wrote a review of the book recently on the blog.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I think I’m going to go with “Beyond Tears: A Mother’s Fight to Save Her Son in Nazi Germany” by Irmgard Litten. It’s been on my “Want to Read” list for some time in Goodreads, and when I finally bought the Kindle version that just moved it up to the Currently Reading shelf. I need to get on this – an entirely different book from what I have been reading.
