Back in July I did an inaugural WWW Wednesday post. I didn't commit to doing it every week, but I didn't think it would take nearly two months to do another one. Whatareyagonnnado?
I've actually read quite a bit since that last post, but I'll stick with the format:
What are you currently reading?What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
I'm reading Tolstoy and the Purple Chair right now. I saw this one while browsing at Barnes and Noble this summer before we went to see Brave. I added it to the book list I keep on my phone, and I got it from the library this past weekend. This is one of those memoirs that chronicles a year of doing something or other. I'm kind of a sucker for that do-it-for-a-year thing. Nina Sankovitch lost her sister and to cope she decided to read a book a day for a year. I'm not very far into it yet, but so far it's quite good.
I recently finished The Odds by Stewart O'Nan. I've been on the O'Nan bandwagon since I read Last Night at the Lobster a couple years back. Both books are extremely short, about 170 pages, and both are top-notch. The Odds is about a couple seemingly at the end of the line. O'Nan is one of those authors who perfectly captures the intricacies of every day life and relationships.
Next up for me is father-mucker by Greg Olear. How 'bout that title? See what he did there? This is another one I saw browsing at B & N, and rather than pay for it, I added it to my phone list and got it from the library. It's about a stay-at-home dad on the brink. I haven't read Olear before and I always enjoy reading a new writer.
If you've read any of these books, I'd love to hear your thoughts. If you're not doing your own WWW Wednesday post, how 'bout sharing in the comments what you're reading, what you've read, and what you will be reading.
