W… W… W… Wednesdays is a meme hosted by Should Be Reading.
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 into the second chapter of Possessing Genius: The Bizarre Odyssey of Einstein’s Brain by Carolyn Abraham, the first book on my Off the Shelf Challenge list. I really am enjoying it; I just keep getting distracted!
And what is this distraction? This week, I’ve been distracted by Caitlin Shetterly’s Made for You and Me: Going West, Going Broke, Finding Home, another e-ARC courtesy of NetGalley.
What did you recently finish reading? A couple days ago, I finished the NetGalley e-ARC of The Hunchback of Neiman Marcus by Sonya Sones. Scheduled for release in April 2011, this is Sones’ first novel for adults. It’s a novel-in-poems about a woman dealing with her ailing mother, her impending empty nest, and her own aging body. It’s a lot funnier than that description makes it sound.
What do you think you’ll read next? I have yet another NetGalley e-ARC, Jane Austen: A Life Revealed by Catherine Reef. Scheduled for release in April 2011, this is billed as the first young adult trade biography on Austen. Somehow, I have made it to my 30s without ever reading any Austen, so this should be especially interesting. I do have the complete works of Austen on the nook; think I’ll be inspired to read them after this?

I just finished reading Steve Martin’s “An Object of Beauty.”
I REALLY liked it! Martin’s insights into the wheelings and dealings of the art industry during the boom years of the ’90’s is fascinating! His dialogue and descriptions are wonderful.
I’ve been meaning to read the Einstein’s Brain book for quite a while. It sounds very interesting!
