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.

I may have gone a little overboard reserving books from the library as soon as my semester ended. I think I have about 20 checked out now, and there is no way I will finish half of them before my summer classes start! I really wanted to have options at my fingertips, though. Since I have not had time to read hardly anything for the past few months, there are a ton of things that I want to read, but I’m not sure what will be able to hold my attention at the moment. Also, since I only have a few weeks before my next round of classes, I didn’t want to change my mind and then have to wait another week for a book from the other side of the county. Thus, I have a towering stack of books (plus a few DVDs). It’s not like it will cost me anything to have them checked out for a few weeks and then return them unread. Have I mentioned lately that I love the library?
So, that’s where I stand on reading these days. Tons of options, and just a few short weeks to get in as much “for fun” reading as I can (while also getting caught up on some other non-school responsibilities). What books are you reading or thinking about today?
Until the next chapter,
