Last week I started my WWW post with “I’m reading as fast as I can”, which I am. But, I got thinking, “What’s the hurry?” I should be savoring every last word. You don’t rush through the meal at a 5-star restaurant, right?
W…W…W…Wednesdays is a weekly reading prompt hosted by MizB at Should be Reading.
TO PLAY ALONG, JUST ANSWER THE FOLLOWING THREE (3) QUESTIONS:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
As you could guess from the intro, I am still reading The Dark Tower: The Dark Tower VII by Stephen King. Some will object to my comparing his books to a fine dining experience. But, I will defend my position with an old saying…”One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” I’ve said before that I don’t need elegant writing and flowery text to enjoy a book. I need to have characters I like/hate (depending on the character) and a good tale. I think Sai King does an excellent job with both. I have yet to be disappointed with one of his books. I admit that I have favorites and not-so-favorites. But, overall, I like them all.
I have roughly 250 pages left in DT VII. So, I hope to have it finished in the next few days.
I recently purchased two more books by Stephen King — Joyland & Cycle of the Werewolf. It is highly probable that I will read Cycle of the Werewolf first, as it is shorter and looks to be a quick read. Then I’ll dig into Joyland. This will get two more books crossed off the Catch Up Reading Challenge list and leave just a couple of books left to finish that goal.
Until next week…
