WWW Wednesday - 3.10.10

Since this is the last week of school before spring break, I am busy trying to finish up all unit plans.  Consequently, I have had to cut back on my blog posting/reading until the weekend.  I thought this might be a fun meme to stay in touch with you, but would not take too much of my dwindling free time.

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?

My Answers:

Currently reading:  Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane.  I rarely go to the movies anymore and I always prefer to read the book before seeing any movie, but this time I made an exception.  I saw the movie last week and was so taken with the ending that I knew I either had to see the movie again or read the book.  I have heard that the endings are quite different and I am looking forward to comparing and contrasting the two for C.B. James Book and a Movie challenge when I am done.

Recently Finished:  The Cotton Queen by Pam Morsi.  This book was originally recommended by Kim and I was interested in reading it for myself as possible "research" for my own writing projects.  The book is told in alternating points of view of a mother and a daughter who live in a small, Texas town just outside Dallas.  While both women are vastly different, they are also very much the same.

Reading Next:  Walden by Henry David Thoreau.  If I am going to read 3,300 pages by June 27, I had better get started!  I have created a reading plan for my summer school course and I selected Walden for my spring break read because I think it will be reminiscent of a relaxing vacation sitting by the lake contemplating life (or at least that is my preconceived idea of the book).  I want to find another "lighter" read for spring break as well, but I think I will let that be a spontaneous decision.


  1. I enjoyed Lehane's "Shutter Island"; haven't seen the movie yet, myself, but I plan to...happy reading!

  2. Shutter Island is on my list!

    Here's my WWW post:

  3. I listened to Shutter Island on audio and it totally blew me away! My book club is reading it now, and we will all go see the movie together tomorrow night! I can't wait!

  4. 3,300 pages! Whoa! That is a big book and there was me cringing reading a 1000 word one. Good luck with that Molly.

  5. Shutter Island is one book that I really want to read!! 3,300!! I'm tipping my hat to you on that one!

  6. I still haven't decided which book I'll be reading for the book and movie challenge.

    Good luck with your spring break reading!
