It’s WWW Wednesday again! This round-up is hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. Here are my answers to the three “W’s”.
What are you currently reading?
Today I got a new book in the mail, written by one of my favorite people – Kira Davis. Her book “Drawing Lines: Why Conservatives Must Begin to Battle Fiercely in the Arena of Ideas” looks like a wonderful discussion on the current moment. From the inside cover: “Kira Davis has built a brand on reaching out to the other side, on giving people space to be wrong, the space to discuss, the space to tolerate. She sincerely believes there are many reasonable people in America from all ideologies who are still willing to talk with ech other, people who are quite happy to live and let live. Unfortunately, none of those people are controlling the conversation right now.”
What did you recently finish reading?
I just finished tonight “Dipped, Stripped & Dead,” by Elise Hyatt (a pen name for Sarah A. Hoyt.) It’s the first in a series featuring Dyce Dare, a clumsy young girl who though she wanted to be a ballerina, ended up refinishing furniture and dumpster diving to supply her business. Then she stumbled over a dead body…. This is the perfect light-hearted read, an entertaining yarn which takes you away from the craziness of today. Dyce is both independent entrepreneur and slightly ditzy dame, who doesn’t want to realize the gorgeous cop is in love with her, and also keeps mum about the antique coffee table she found next to the body. See, she’s got to raise her young son, and find a way to make more money from refinishing furniture to keep them in something other than pancakes.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I know I said after Dipped, Stripped, and Dead I’d read this book, a mystery with some political overtones, set in a farming community: The Gentleman Farmers. But it’s going to have to wait until I can finish Kira’s book.
