WWW Wednesday (June 12)

WWW Wednesday June 12Last 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. 


  1. What are you currently reading?
  2. What did you recently finish reading?
  3. 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…


About Paul H-C

Just an avid reader in the little town of Bangor, Maine (Yes, that Bangor...home of Stephen King). When I'm not reading and drinking coffee, I sell cell phones by the sea shore.

  1. Never apologize for your reading pace! I find that my pace really depends on the book and what else is going on in my life. Some books I devour, others I savor, and some I just kind of tolerate until they are done. Your dining analogy is a good one. I need to read the Dark Tower series one of these days.
