WWW Wednesdays by: Should Be Reading


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Q:

What are you currently reading?

A:

Currently, I’m reading Say You’re One of Them by Uwem Akpan.  Well, I’m juggling reading that and doing NaNo so I’m not getting much reading done.  However, I love this book so I’m excited to finish it!  Once I do, I will be posting a review so stay tuned!  🙂

Q: 

What did you recently finish reading?

A:

I recently finished Becoming a Writer by Dorthea Brande.  I wasn’t too fond of it so I did not write a review and don’t plan to.

Q: 

What do you think you’ll read next?

A:

It’s going to take me a while to finish the book I’m currently reading, especially since I’m also doing NaNo.  So I have no clue what my next read will be!

Q:

What are you currently reading?

A:

Currently, I’m reading Becoming a Writer by Dorothea Brande.  I don’t like it but I must finish it, however, there will be no review after I’m done.  It really isn’t worth my time.

Q: 

What did you recently finish reading?

A:

Last week, I finished Off the Grid by Nick Rosen.  It was an overall good book.  You can check out my review of it here.

Off the Grid: Inside the Movement for More Space, Less Government, and True Independence in Modern America

Q: 

What do you think you’ll read next?

A:

Once I finish my current book, I won’t be reading anything for a while because I will be participating in National Novel Writing Month all through November.  Whomever has participated before will know that it takes up a lot of your time (this, however, will be the first time I’m participating so I’m just going off of what other people are saying about “time management”).  It should be fun and I’m sure I’ll be reading here and there but I probably won’t be reading an entire book for a while.

[pg.166]  The last method is to let your mind skitter all it pleases, watching it indulgently as it moves.  Presently it will grow quieter.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

Currently, I am reading Becoming a Writer by Dorothea Brande.  

Becoming a Writer

I got it on one of the last weekends Borders was open and honestly, I don’t like it.  

It’s a 1980’s re-copy of her original 1934 publication, with a foreword by John Gardner, and while it is cute/funny that she says “and if you’ve learnt how to use a typewriter or would rather write with quill to paper” and things like that, it isn’t what I was expecting at all – and I really don’t know what I was expecting!
