WWW Wednesday #4: idea from Should Be Reading
What are you currently reading?
Too many things, as per usual. The only one I’m actively reading is How to Climb Mont Blanc in a Skirt which is interesting and entertaining. Lots of lady explorers I didn’t know about! I quite appreciate that it’s not pushing an agenda, though, and is happy to call women explorers out for their failures as well as celebrate them for their successes.
What did you recently finish reading?
I managed to finish The London Train by Tessa Hadley. It got much better after about page 100, and in the end I enjoyed it a lot. Then I read The Baby Laundry for Unmarried Mothers by Angela Patrick which was a touching easy read with a fairly happy ending. I didn’t read 101 Things To Do Before You Diet from cover to cover but read most of it and am now keeping it in my car for those moments when I’m stuck with nothing to do. It started out really well and quickly descended into madness, suggesting that you pour washing up liquid on your leftovers so that they can’t tempt you. After the author slates diet books in the introduction, she goes on to write a book that is actually a bit more awful than your average diet book.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I downloaded The Earth Hums in B Flat by Mari Strachan to my Kindle so I might give that a go.
