Well, who hasn’t heard of A Christmas Carol? I’m probably too late to read this and yeah, it’s not Christmas season but I guess, it’s never too late to be delighted and entertained by a good Christmas story.
And what else is there to say that haven’t been said yet?
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. This is Christmas.
“There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor.”
“No space of regret can make amends for one life’s opportunity misused.”
“For it is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas, when its mighty Founder was a child Himself.”
Rating: 4/5 stars
Hello there! Welcome to WWW Wednesday, hosted by Sam from Taking On A World of Words. I didn’t really have the time to read as much as I usually could the past couple of weeks but I’m somehow back to it now so here we go. Just answer the three W questions:
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What are you currently reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
The Princess and the Penis was a hilarious read. I’ve read it while on lunch break alone. This was a cute and silly read that made me giggle and smile like an idiot for a good half an hour!
I’ve completely forgotten that I have a copy of Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes if not for a friend’s reading update on Goodreads. So I’ve decided to start on it a few days ago. I tried to read a few pages in between my work and glad to be able to finish it. It was captivating but heartbreaking as well.
I was also able to finish Cream, a short story by Haruki Murakami. A beautiful and refreshing story.
I haven’t gotten far from A Dance with Dragons and I don’t think I still have enough time to finish it before the year ends because I’ve just started with The Russian Concubine and A Christmas Carol. I have both on my Kindle so I can possibly read in between my work again or while commuting.
Not sure what to read next as I am having a really busy time at work (and even after work) these days so it’s not very easy to find time to read but my eyes are on Out by Natsuo Kirino and The Driver’s Seat by Muriel Spark. I’d be glad to hear some suggestions, though, so feel free!
Some book reviews I’ve managed the previous weeks:
Thousand Cranes by Yasunari Kawabata
The Princess and the Penis by R.J. Silver
The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
I’d be glad to know what you’re reading, what you’ve just finished and what you plan to read next so drop a link so I can check them out or share them on the comments section.
Until next time, homo sapiens!
