WWW Wednesdays (Nov 6)

   I haven’t joined in with a meme for quite a while now and just discovered one called WWW Wedneday run by MizB at Should be Reading.  

 Reading = Books
Books I love so what better one to join in with is one that includes Books lol
So to play along you just have to answer 3 questions

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

I am currently reading – Crossing to Safety by Wallace Stegner

Have only just started reading this – about the friendship of 2 couples from the time they meet at a university in Wisconsin.  It isn’t a fast moving book – lots of words – even though I have to actually think about what I’m reading it’s quite an easy read.

crossing to safety I recently finished – The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul by Deborah Rodriguez

About a cafe/coffee shop in Kabul and five women who become involved with it and each other in various ways.  A book about friendship, trials and tribulations of expats,  traditions and treatment of women as well a little bit of romance.  Sort of a war torn chick lit that has you thinking.  Picked it up and read till I finished – good way to fill in a very hot day The little coffee shop I think my next read will be – The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Schaffer/Ann Barrows

Saw it on the shelf in the library the other day and was fascinated by the title 🙂
Looks like it will be a fun read.

  1. Believe it or not I am still reading GONE WITH THE WIND. I have it on my Kindle and an pecking my way through it. I will stop and rent a movie for my Kindle or rent an Audio book. It is sad that my concentration is at a minimum right now and mindless drivel is all that I can tolerate.


  2. The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul looks cute, might try it out one day. I’m usually apprehensive towards authors writing about a culture or a group when they don’t know much about it, but I think this author wrote something about Afghanistan before so I’m assuming she knows a little bit of what she’s talking about. I’m still nervous, but I might get it out.

    Here’s mine


  3. My reading stopped for a bit while I was finishing off my blanket but by my side is High Society by Ben Elton and I have another book by my bedside (can’t remember what – oh dear and another by Nick Oldham on the Kindle.
    The blanket is finished so there is nothing to stop me continuing my reading now – apart from Christmas preparations of course!
    Love from Mum


  4. Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a sweet comment. i do appreciate your kindness. I too shall come back here and will book in.

    I am a great reader and have more than one book n the go every time. But sadly, I have found that books don’t travel. I rarely know the authors people in other parts of the world recommend and I am sure that mine are unknown elsewhere too. Jane Gardam anyone? Or Kate Atkinson? Or Michael Frayn? Or W.G. Sebald?

    Thought not.


  5. G’day Cathy. At the moment I am reading “Snatched” by Karin Slaughter. It’s a short story, but interesting. It’s about the kidnap of a little girl. My next book is also by the same author. The title is “Unseen” . Your books sound interesting. Take care. Liz….


  6. I see you are into three again.

    1/ I just completed Carnival of the Dead, an excellent mystery by Hewson;

    2/ I am currently reading ‘Margins and Metropolis: Authority across the Byzantine Empire,’ by Judith Herrin. This heavy duty history. (i am a historian);

    3/ Yesterday, I purchased Charles Krautheimer’s autobiography, ‘Things that Matter”. Charles is a conservative journalist who covers Washington politics. The book covers the past three decades of Washington politics. As I worked for the US Congress during some of those years, this topic interests me.



  7. Just finished Gone Girl, I was gripped reading, lots of twists in the story it but the ending left me very cross indeed, is that the sign of a good book I wonder.


  8. I hope you enjoy the Potato Peel Pie book as much as I did! I admit to reading it more than once, and that is unusual for me! A movie? Oh, my! Can’t wait. The scenery alone will be fun.
