The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

I decided I liked this revived idea and would try it out on my own blog for a bit. And yes, I do know it’s Thursday. So, here goes…this is the first post of this sort for me and will be the worst of the catch up ones, I’m sure. Or, at least, I hope. Life interferes, as I’m sure you’ve all experienced at times, and the blog suffers for it. This time, it’s the aging parents who’ve needed me. I’ve had to put my 90-year old step-father in an assisted living facility and add hospice care far too soon for my poor brain to keep up with. It’s a jungle getting through what this entails for paperwork and rules! My 92-year old mother is next up on the docket. We’ll see how that goes. Say a few prayers for me.

Well, books that I’ve read that desperately need review include some that NetGalley provided quite a while ago such as Artful Alphabets by Joanne Sharpe. This was a really fun read, although when I got the digital edition, it was fractured and I couldn’t make head nor tail of it. This was published April 2018. I did say I was behind on reviews, didn’t I? I had to visit my local Barnes and Noble to see the book in hardcover to really get the full effect of Ms. Sharpe’s wonderfully fun alphabets and artistry. This is great fun is you have time to play with it.

Another NetGalley book is In Intimate Detail by Cora Harrington which was published August 2018. This was a fabulous source on lingerie. It contained more information on ladies’ lingerie than most women would know from having worn it all their lives. I learned a few interesting tidbits, and I’ve done quite a bit of research on the subject. I have read Ms. Harrington’s blog a time or three and found that also is a great source of information and just plain interesting. Most of us are wearing the wrong size bra and having far too little fun with our lingerie according to this lingerie expert. To find out all the ins and outs, this book is certainly worth a peek.

A more recent read was The Right Sort of Man by Allison Montclair which is not out yet. My review of this WWII-ish novel about two women who start a marriage bureau and end up detecting when one of their clients is murdered and another accused of the murder is on my blog this week. I gave it a 5-star rating since it was so much fun and held my interest for a one-day read. I highly recommend it for those of you who like stories about the time after the wars and what the survivors did with their lives and how they were affected by the war. This story has some new twists in it.

Currently, I’m listening to Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline Winspear. I’ve read it before, but I wanted to try Audible books to see how well I’d do with them. So far, I can knit just fine, but I can’t drive well with them. I just can’t concentrate that well on the two things to do either of them right! So for safety’s sake, I’ll stick to knitting with my books. I’ve got another Maisie Dobbs book lined up as well as several others. Girl Mans Up by M.E. Girard, Touched by A.J. Aalto, Three Mages and a Margarita by Annette Marie, The Emperor’s Soul by Brandon Sanderson, Skyward by Brandon Sanderson, and Black Crow, White Snow by Michael Livingston.

In ebooks, I have a novella by R. Kitt called Gate of Shadows. I believe this is the last of her novellas and we may see a longer work from her in whatever her next release is. I also have The Quiet Ones by Betsy Reavley, Cold Heart, Warm Cowboy by Caitlin Crews, The Duke is But a Dream by Anna Bennett, and The Seduction Expert by Saya Lopez Ortega.

In my spare time, I’m re-reading a textbook from college in a second edition format, Practical Decision Making in Health Care Ethics by Raymond J. Deveterre. This is an excellent help to people who have to make the decisions, such as health care proxies, when family ages and someone has to make those final, end-of-life decisions. This discusses actual cases and walks you through the points of view and rights and wrongs of how to make these decisions, why the system is set up the way it is, and how to find your way through it when the time comes.

I may not post this every Wednesday as you wouldn’t see much change from week to week with the way things are going right now. But I’ll post it when I think there might be some change to share or I make a particularly good haul at the store! In the meantime, what are your three “W”s? Post your comments here or post on your blog and link here to share your reads! My source was https://samannelizabeth.wordpress.com/2019/05/29/www-wednesday-29-may-2019/
