WWW Wednesday: 14 April 2021

I skipped last week for some reason. I don’t think I finished anything then anyway, so I guess it does not matter. And I am super late again today! Anyway, happy Wednesday evening!

***

WWW Wednesdays’ home is at Sam’s blog Taking On A World of Words. Check it out! (It’s her birthday today, so wish her a happy birthday!)

The three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you will read next?

***

What am I currenly reading?

I have just started Fire From Heaven by Mary Renault last night, so I am only 6 (!!) pages in. I was choosing a new book and just kind of felt like reading a fiction book about some ancient civilization. This one centres around Alexander The Great.

I am still listening to Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. It is nice to revisit this wonderful novel as an audio book. Rosamund Pike does a great job reading it. She brings a lot of life to it. I only have an hour or so to go, so I expect to finish it in the next couple of days.

What did your recently finish reading?

I finished Palace of Desire, the second book in the Cairo Trilogy by Naguib Mahfouz, just yesterday evening. I really love Mahfouz’ writing a lot. It took me about two weeks to read, which is long for me, but I don’t mind. I enjoyed it and I will order the third book in the series soon.

What will I be reading next?

It’s time to pick up another non-fiction book. I am just not quite sure which one yet. I have a couple of music books I want to read, but I also have some other books I would like to get to soon. I will probably decide later today.

As for fiction, I will probably pick up something from my 2021 TBR next.

  1. I cannot do fiction on audio. It makes me so sad but I totally miss so much. For some reason, I do a great job with memoirs. I have never thought of doing a re-read of a book through audio!! I mean, since I already know most of it, I don’t have to be too upset if I miss a little bit. I’ll have to give that a shot! 🙂 I hope you have a great week!

    1. I’m the same. I usually do memoirs on audio. But I am actually enjoying this, because like you say, I already know the book, so it does not need as much concentration!
