WWW Wednesday Reads – 28th March 2012

28 Mar

WWW Wednesday, as hosted by shouldbereading

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?

What are you currently reading?
I’m reading Plus tard, tu comprendras, [you’ll understand later] by Jérome Clément as my bed-time book. It is all about a man who’s going through his recently-deceased mother’s belongings and finds lots of papers detailing what happened to her parents during WWII. It sounds dry maybe, but I find it fascinating and movingly written.

My second book is Chanter la langue d’oc en Provence à la fin du XXe siècle, [singing in Occitan in Provence at the end of the 20th century] by Elisabeth Cestor. I’m really cheesed off with myself for not finding this book sooner as it supports some parts of my dissertation that I’d been unable to support before. I now have to re-write the bones of my literature review.

I’m also reading Lost Tales of Ga’Hoole by Kathryn Lasky as slowly as I can because I don’t want to finish the series.

What did you recently finish reading?
1Q84 by Haruki Murakami: I finished the 1st book yesterday but can’t quite face reading the sequels yet because the content is quite challenging and keeps making me weep.

I finally finished reading Sienkiewicz’s Les Chevaliers Teutoniques after over two weeks!

 

What do you think you’ll read next?
As soon as I’ve finished the books I’m on (and have read L’Amant for class), I’m going to start to focus on reading articles from back copies of the Languages magazines that I have subscriptions for. I need to get this Literature Review re-written DX

 

 

What are you reading? Or hoping to read? Any reading woes or wins recently?
Feel free to comment and say! 🙂

    Hi, there! “Plus tard, tu Comprendras” sounds very poignant. I’m a sucker for that type of historical fiction, but I’d be crying, too.

    Mine is at http://katybrandes.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=316&action=edit&message=1.

      Hello. Historical fiction is excellent when it’s well written. This one’s even sadder as it’s all true. 😦

    The Clément book sounds really interesting. I don’t know if I’m up for 1Q84, I might have to wait until school’s out.

      It is growing on me. I think they made a film version starring Jeanne Moreau. 1Q84 is definitely a commitment. Do you have time to read right now or do you have too much school work?

        I’m reading text book samples, trying to choose for next year. But hopefully I will be able to read it during summer vacation.

        Good luck with choosing text books. What subject/s do you teach?

        I teach high school social studies–and I’m looking for a new Advanced Placement US History text. Such a challenge to find just the right one!
