{November 2, 2011}   WWW Wednesday for November 2nd,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? “Being Kendra” by Kendra Wilkinson

What did you recently finish reading? “How reading changed my life” by Anna Quindlen

“The Day I turned uncool:Confessions of a Reluctant Grown-up” by Dan Zevin

What do you think you’ll read next? “Then Came You” by Jennifer Weiner

Giving Thanks Day #2: Today, I give thanks for my ability to read and my ability to see with my eyes, even if I need to wear glasses or contacts to do so adequately. Not only do my eyes allow me to read, but they allow me to see beauty in life; from a newborn baby to a beautiful rose, without my sight, I would be unable to truly understand what you can only learn through vision. We often take advantage of the fact that we can see until we are faced with the possibility of losing it. I want to give thanks now, today, for my sight instead of waiting for a moment to come when I may not have it anymore.

Paula says:

• What are you currently reading? Eye of the World
• What did you recently finish reading? Game of Thrones
• What do you think you’ll read next? either Stormlord’s Exile or The Magician King, but I’m only half way through Eye of the World so it may be a while.

I have to admit that I have never thought to give thanks for my ability to read. There are so many things that I take for granted. Thank you for bringing that to my attention! This gives me a lot to think about! 🙂



I never thought about it either and I originally was going to say I’m thankful for something else but I was trying to make it fit my reading theme so I put two and two together and thought, “I’m thankful I can read!” 😀



1. “Surrender Bay” by Denise Hunter
2. “The Will of Wisteria” by Denise Hildrath (yes, same author as “Flies on the Butter” – tissues required.)
3. ???

Thanks for sharing your thanks! 😀



Tissues are pretty much a prerequisite at all times for me…I am an extremely emotional person and there’s no telling what may start me crying!



What did you think of “How reading changed my life?”



I loved it! I could really relate to her story of growing up and always reading while everyone was encouraging her to do something else. That was so me as a kid! I always had my nose in a book. And I also liked the reading lists….I looked up some of the books on Goodreads to see if they sounded interesting to me and ended up adding a few books to my list! 🙂

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
