Whatcha Reading Wednesday

It’s WWW Wednesday again! This round-up is hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. Today I answer the three questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you just finish reading?
  • What are you going to read next?

What are you currently reading?

During the last few weeks of Lent I’m adding in more religious reading. Below are two of the books I’ve been reading through right now: Revelation for Everyone by N.T. Wright and What if it’s True: A Storyteller’s Journey with Jesus by Charlie Martin. The first is a good verse by verse guide to the most mysterious book of the Bible. The second is a good look at one man’s experiences with faith. I’m reading this one because the title struck me so hard in the bookstore* and I’m thinking I’ll give this one to a friend I know after I’m done. (*Yes, an actual bookstore. I still go to those!)

What did you recently finish reading?

I’ve loved each book I read in the Liturgical Mystery series. Organist/choir director Hayden Konig gets to investigate a crime – when he’s not trying to write hard-boiled detective fiction in the manner of Raymond Chandler. Oh, and he’s also the town’s chief of police. It all works out with a cast of characters every bit as lovable and eccentric as those in Mitford. It’s a cosy read, just perfect for relaxing with after a long day at work. This one was perfect for the lead-up to St. Patrick’s and during Lent – because the characters are going through the same season.

More Cosy Reads

I’ve also wanted to “escape” more – and these two old favorites from Agatha Christie certainly fit the bill for that. I can’t believe publishers are changing her words in the name of sensitivity. I don’t think anyone should tamper with her words.

What do you think you’ll read next?

At this rate – who knows if I’ll get around to reading Dante’s Purgatory. Prediction: 20% probability.
