WWW Wednesday: January 27


IMG_1384-0
Each week, Sam over at Taking on a World of Words asks the following three 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?
  • African American Literature 1930-1960: Langston Hughes's Not Without Laughter
  • African American Literature 1960-1988: The Autobiography of Malcolm X
  • The U.S. Since 1945: Chapter 2 of Steven M. Gillon's The American Paradox and handouts
  • The World Since 1945: Chapter 1 of P.M.H. Bell's The World Since 1945
Pleasure/Other Reads: 

I'm still listening to Marilynne Robinson's Gilead (again) and am 5/16 through with Jan Karon's At Home In Mitford. As always, I'm also reading journal and contest submissions.
 
• What did you recently finish reading?

  • African American Literature 1930-1960:  Lorraine Hansberry's Raisin In The Sun
  • African American Literature 1960-1988: Handouts of chapters and journal articles and James Baldwin's Another Country.
  • The U.S. Since 1945: Chapter 1 of Steven M. Gillon's The American Paradox and handouts
  • The World Since 1945: we didn't read anything our first week of class 
Pleasure/Other Reads: 

I read about 30 journal and contest submissions last week, but didn't get very far with anything else I'm reading or listening to. 





• What do you think you’ll read next?

  • African American Literature 1930-1960: Zora Neale Hurston’s Jonah’s Gourd Vine
  • African American Literature 1960-1988: Alice Walker's The Third Life of Grange Copeland
  • The U.S. Since 1945: Chapter 3 of Steven M. Gillon's The American Paradox
  • The World Since 1945: Chapter 2 of P.M.H. Bell's The World Since 1945
Pleasure/Other Reads: 

More submission readings, reading Josh Kaufman's The Personal MBA: Master The Art of Business, and Jan Karon's A Light In The Window.

  2. I've never read Jan Karon before but it seems like you really enjoy her. Hope the stories can keep you sane through a crazy semester! Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!
