WWW....Wednesdays






Over at Should be Reading, MizB hosts WWW… WEDNESDAYS and asks readers to just answer the following 3 questions:
  1. What are you currently reading?
  2. What did you recently finish reading?
  3. What do you think you’ll read next?
As an avid reader I follow a lot of blogs and came across this wonderful thread posted by MizB
OK, here are my answers:

1)Currently reading:
I am currently reading Lucia, Lucia: A Novel
This was recommended on another blog (can't remember which now), but really enjoying it.

Also reading
Inbound Marketing: Get Found Using Google, Social Media, and Blogs (New Rules Social Media Series)

I always feel I should read a business book. I feel terribly guilty if I read a novel during the day.

And finally, re-reading

Beyond Positive Thinking: A No-Nonsense Formula for Getting the Results You Want

2) Recently finished:

The Other Hand

This book is hauntingly beautiful and will stay with you long after you turn the final page. I couldn't stop thinking about it weeks after I finished it.And it still brings tears to my eyes now.

3)Planning to read next:

Just ordered One Day by  David Nicholls, Seventh Heaven by Alice Hoffman and Spiritual Economics by Eric Butterworth.

One Day


 Seventh Heaven
Spiritual Economics: The Principles and Process of True Prosperity


That's my list.
Any recommendations  or  comments on the books I am planning to read next would be appreciated.

I'm glad you played along! :) Nice books! Do you read more than one at a time?

Hi MizBiz

Welcome to my blog.
Yes, I do read more than one book at a time. I usually read business or non-fiction during the day. And I like to read spiritual books and some easy reading fiction when I'm tucked up in bed. I don't know why I feel really guilty if I stop to read fiction during the day. I often think it was because when I was younger I was never allowed to read "fictional type" books until all my homework was done; so that only left the night-times to read my fictional novels. So I seem to carry this guilt around with me now; 30 years later!!

Hi Bookventures

Thank you for your comments and for deciding to follow my blog.I hope I keep you entertained and "inspired".

I would love to become part of your book club, something I've really missed living in a non-English speaking country (and my Spanish is embarrassingly bad!!).
I've made a note of the address and will go shortly to have a peek.

As for Adriana Trigani, it's the first book I've read of hers, and I am really loving it. If you have never read one of her books, give it a whirl. You might be pleasantly surprised.
