WWW Wednesday is a weekly book meme run by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words.
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
Reading this week has been a little more slow-going, so I’m still in thick of The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs by Steven Brusatte. That being said, I’m still enjoying the book immensely. I really like how it gets into the evolutionary history of how these creatures likely functioned, such as how sauropods evolved to be so massive and how they could maintain such huge sizes. There is a great balance between the history of these eras and anecdotes about work in the field, including where fossils can be found today and why. Excited;y telling people facts I’ve learned from what I’m reading is a simple joy that I haven’t had with a book in a long time.
Nothing this week, which I again attribute to it being a slow week for me. With no more Berserk to read I was not compelled to pick up and read a comic book. Oh well, there’s always the week to come.
I still intend to read Lost Stars by Claudia Gray next, but I can’t help but think I need to read something else concurrently to bump up the numbers on my finished books a bit. Skimming my scrappy little list right now (literally) I have decided also start Fragile Things by Neil Gaiman soon. I always prefer a short story collection as a concurrent read, and what better than another of Gaiman’s. Turns out one of the stories within is connected to American Gods as well. Marvelous!
Until next week, thank you for reading!

Love Neil Caiman! I’d really like to try some of his short stories.
I’ve only read one book of his short stories before — Smoke & Mirrors — and it was really good!
I try to read as much Gaiman as possible as I have not decided if I like him or not)
Here is my WWW
I’ve been in love with his writing since reading his Sandman series. I hope something captures your imagination soon!
I always take it as a sign of a great read when you can’t help talking to everyone about it. I wouldn’t worry too much about finishing a certain number of books. It should be quality over quantity but I suppose you have a Neil Gaiman so that definitely counts as quality 🙂
You’re definitely right about quality over quantity being better, I just don’t want to fall short of my personal goals again this year. I’ll try not to sweat it too much, all the same.
