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?

    1. Yep!
      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.

      Have a great day!

    1. 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!
