The Three Ws are:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
We all have those books we try to stretch out because we want them to last as long as possible. As is the case with me stretching the last third of Peace Talks by Jim Butcher. I already know there is the next book, but I’m not sure when the one after that will be out. I only know there will be one after these two because the series is meant to be 20 books in it. Plus a trilogy on top of it to bring full closure to the series. At least that is his plan according to an interview with him a few years ago. I think Kim Harrison had the same idea with the 13th book in The Hollows series, and yet she is still writing in that world as we speak.
At the same time, I am also working through American Gods by Neil Gaiman. It’s another one I don’t want to finish since then I have to finish the show as well. A show I enjoy immensely. Along with finding it interesting how Gaiman keeps all of his books in the same basic universe for the most part from what I have read so far.
Though, Stephen King is helping with that since his book Mr. Mercedes is over on Peacock TV. It helps make me read faster knowing more books I like are being made into shows and movies. Although, at some point, it is merely the book driving me to read since they are so good and suck me in.
Outside of fiction, I am reading my usual variety of magazines. Most know I am a smoker so finding an article in the May 24/31, 2021 Time Magazine on Juul interesting. Especially as I prepare to give my views on Menthol and other flavored tobacco in an essay. Also Wired has a deep review of Section 230, the piece of legislation that has been so confused over the years concerning the internet and free speech.
But, whatever you’re reading, as long as you are enjoying it, that is what matters most. For now, I have to get back to work on reopening things and some poetry.
