{June 22, 2011}   WWW Wednesday for June 22,2011

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading? “The Unknown Terrorist” by Richard Flanagan

What did you recently finish reading? “The Girls” by Lori Lansens (excellent read!)

What do you think you’ll read next? Not sure but for now I’m going to say “Murder for Love”. It’s a book of short stories by various authors such as Mary Higgins Clark and her daughter Carol, Faye Kellerman, Joyce Carol Oates and Anne Perry to name a few. BUT I reserve the right to change my mind, so we’ll see! 🙂

And now, because reading is so much fun, here are some jokes about books and reading!

Mother: What did you learn in school today?

Son: How to write.

Mother: What did you write?

Son: I don’t know, they haven’t taught us how to read yet!

Q. Why is that library book you’re trying to find always in the last place you look? A. Because once you find it, you stop looking.

Jim said, “My dog tried to eat my library book.”
“What did you do?” asked the librarian.
“I took the words right out of his mouth.”

*Do you have any silly stories or jokes about books or reading? OR do you have a favorite humorous book that you could read over and over?

Loved the way you tied up this post, Sharon!

I just finished a gothic romance ~ I have already forgotten the name of the book and the principle characters. 😉

I’m reading:
* ZEN and the Art of Making a Living.
* Simple Abundance
* The Duchess

Next up? Time will tell.

Here’s a joke about an avid reader:

Thanks! I’m going to go check out this joke now! 🙂

Haha, I love your joke about reading and writing, especially because it’s so true! Kids learn how to write before they learn how to read. How interesting…

I was raised in Christian schools so I was taught with a very good background in phonics, which is something, at least in the area I live in, that I find very lacking in public schools now. All of my nieces, except one, were taught the same kind of phonics and all the ones that were taught that are very good at reading and I completely think it was due to that. They need to bring back more emphasis on phonics in schools.

Funny ending there Sharon! Have you considered the Blogging for Books idea? (
They send you books to read and review… It might be up your alley as you read a lot. 🙂 I’ve enjoyed it so far…

I’ve heard about blogging for books…didn’t know any specific sites or ways of joining, though! Sounds fun and I will have to check it out! Thanks for sending me that link! 🙂
Have a great day!

The Day I Turned Uncool: Confessions of a Reluctant Grown-up by Dan Zevin 🙂

• What are you currently reading?

A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore (second time reading – also falls into the “humorous book that you could read over and over” category)

• What did you recently finish reading?
Lamb by Christopher Moore

• What do you think you’ll read next?

No idea — I have plans to hit the used bookstore though!

***I just looked up “The Girls” by Lori Lansens — I had chills reading the summary! That’s definitely going on the list!

I definitely want to look up that book to see about reading it. Sounds very funny, judging by the title.
I love Christopher Moore, he is hilarious. I own both Dirty Job AND Lamb and have read both! It’s hard to find books by him around here, though. 😦 Our library doesn’t seem to carry them so I just have to look when I get a chance to go to Half Price Books in Austin which is where I bought Lamb.
I think “Lamb” probably would not be liked by some Christians but I actually loved it. I like to take fiction for what it’s meant to be….to entertain, put a different spin on things and not be so serious. So that’s what I did when I read it! 🙂
You should definitely read “The Girls” by Lori Lansens, it was great!

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
