Jingle all the way into today’s WWW Wednesday! I wish I could make everything in today’s post Christmas-themed, but I’m still working on enough other reading goals that I can’t quite swing it this time around. There are a lot of good books up this week though, so read on!
WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme currently hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. The three W’s stand for the following questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next? To participate, make a post or comment answering the three questions, link up to the host (Sam)’s post, and check out what others are reading and talking about! I typically participate once a month, approximately in the middle of the month, as a halfway check-in on my monthly reading goals.
What am I currently reading?
The Radium Girls by Kate Moore (audiobook) – 71% done
I’m realizing that it really is a significant struggle for me to read anything that is sad or disappointing in tone. I’m just barely going to finish this in time.
Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World by Vicki Myron – 36% done
On the complete opposite side of things, Dewey is an incredibly fun book so far! Of course, I love cats and I love libraries, so just about any story about a library cat is sure to be a hit for me!
Song for a Whale by Lynne Kelly
I expected to like Song for a Whale, but I did not anticipate it being as fun and moving as it is! I’m about half way through and I already highly recommend this book!
What did I recently finish reading?
I am flying through books this month! So far in December I have read:
Red Boots by Kate Willis ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Finding Christmas Joy by Amanda Tero ⭐⭐⭐
Confessions by Augustine of Hippo, translated by Sarah Ruden ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
O Pioneers! by Willa Cather ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Dear Reader by Mary O’Connell ⭐⭐⭐
Stand on the Sky by Erin Bow ⭐⭐⭐⭐
What do I think I will read next?

The Christmas Cat by Melody Carlson
Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
Candy Cane Murder by Joanne Fluke
I hope you are all having a wonderful week! The first two weeks of December have brought more than a fair amount of chaos my way, but it’s the good kind of chaos where most of the things that need to be done are fun and vaguely celebratory. I drove (well, carpooled) halfway across the state to celebrate Christmas with a few of my college roommates last weekend, and it was so good to hang out with people I hadn’t seen in a while. This week my work is having a potluck. There has also been sickness in my family recently, so not all of the chaos is positive, but I am sure we will get through. I’m doing all I can think of to help everyone be healthy in time for Christmas proper. I’m also still working on the sweater I’ve been knitting as a Christmas present. Of course I’m stressing over that a bit, but I still believe I will have it done (barely) in time.
How is your month going so far? Are you ready for Christmas, or do you still have much to do to prepare? Also, have you watched any good new Christmas movies this year? I love most classic Hallmark Christmas movies, but I’ve been a bit disappointed in a large portion of what I have seen this year.
Until the next chapter,
