{July 27, 2011}   WWW Wednesday for July 27th, 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? “Rebecca” by Daphne Du Maurier, a best selling novel from the late 1930’s and I believe it’s what’s considered gothic fiction…the idea of the book sounded interesting so I got it from the library the last time I checked out some books

What did you recently finish reading? “The Mermaid Chair” by Sue Monk Kidd and “Rise and Shine” by Anna Quindlen (there were 2 other books by her I wanted to read more but out of those 2, the library only carried one and it was checked out….so I checked out 2 other of her books and this one was actually ranked pretty low by fans of hers so I was afraid that in reading it, it may make me not be interested in reading anything else of hers. BUT I actually liked the book a good bit and can’t wait to read MORE by her.)

What do you think you’ll read next? “Loud and Clear” by Anna Quindlen (Interested to see how well I like THIS book by her….”Rise and Shine” was a fictional story while THIS book is supposed to be her own words and opinions on different things, so it’s going to read differently, of course.) I also got my next review book in the mail called “Dragonspell” by Donita K. Paul that I am excited to read. It is definitely more my type of reading versus the first review book I got.

If you had to choose between BOOKS or TELEVISION to have for the rest of your life, which would YOU choose? BOOKS as in all form of books and writings, so even magazines, newspapers,etc. even including electronic readers and TELEVISION as in all forms of tv shows, movies,news, on any sort of television screen….including computer and phone screens….

I would personally choose Books because as much as I enjoy television, I could never imagine getting rid of books in my life and I could always create my own visual world within my mind. WHAT WOULD YOU CHOOSE?

I love Rebecca. And check out the Alfred Hitchcock movie, too.

So far, I love it, too! 🙂 I didn’t know there was a movie of it, though…cool! Might have to check that out when I am through with the book!

I can’t wait to hear what you think about Rebecca. I vaguely remember seeing the movie years ago (probably 30!) so I have the book on my to-read shelf.
I’d definitely pick books over TV and I already have. No cable TV for us at home. We only watch a few series online (nothing this whole summer) and selected movies. I don’t miss it one bit and it helps to not know what I’m missing!

So far I really like it….I just love how great it’s written…the words just take me away! 🙂
I’m not too far in yet though cause I have been feeling under the weather ~coughs~ girl stuff….:(

I respect and admire but I’m not a big fan of the Gothic novel genre… soon you’ll have to put together a post on all the books you’ve read to date… Keep going. 🙂

Well…..I started the Reading Challenge back in February or March….and I started at 100 books but changed it to 50 since I was starting late…..I have now almost hit the 50 goal…and am sure I will hit it with plenty of time to spare….so I will probably be upping it to 75 for the year…….so that might be a HUGE post! LOL

Catching up on comments again… how do we do it? Phew! 🙂

Yea, it can be hard! I think I have gotten behind again too…I have only been on to do my posts the past couple of days because I haven’t been feeling well so sometime this weekend, I got to catch up on reading other posts and commenting again! 🙂 But…it’s fun!

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
