W.W.W. Wednesday, or, Intervention Needed ASAP


www wednesday

I’m home with the kiddos on Spring Break and trying to maintain my sanity as best as possible. Yesterday, my in-laws took the boys to the natural history museum, and so I found myself with time on my hands! I had some errands to run – one of which being a library run to return some videos that were due.

And I honestly can’t tell you that last time I was in the library ALONE! No kids trailing along, complaining if I even try to go into the Grown-Up section. I’d stare longingly at the shelves in the distance while hauling ass upstairs to the Children’s area. But yesterday, with no kids in sight, I gleefully entered the stacks and immediately went batshit crazy. With Goodreads on my iPhone, dialed up to my “to-read” list, I began scrolling to find the title of the books I’ve been waiting forever for. Or that have languished on the “to-read” list for way too long.

The below is the result of my library trip. Now, keep in mind, I also have a double-digit TBR pile at home, as well as about 15 .mobi files that I need to review for Literary R&R. Good thing they’re free at the library.


Clearly, I need an intervention, because I am a full-fledged bookaholic. There’s no way, even if I do nothing else, that I will read all of these in the alloted two weeks.

Being Wednesday, I thought I’d participate in the W.W.W. Wednesday meme hosted by Should Be Reading. To participate, all you need to do is answer the following questions:

1.  What are you currently reading?
2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you’ll read next?

So …

1. What are you currently reading?

See photo above. I’m starting with The Last Time I Saw You by Elizabeth Berg. So far, it is excellent. I was not a huge fan of the last Elizabeth Berg I read, but this one is much better.

2. What did you recently finish reading?

In the past week, I read Landing by Emma Donoghue and The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway.

3. What do you think you’ll read next?

 After I get through the pile above, I’m probably going to read The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion.
