WWW.WEDNESDAY

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…


• What are you currently reading? Fab: An Intimate Life of Paul McCartney by Howard Sounes. I have high hopes for this biography, even though right now I'm still in Paul's childhood. I have noticed that, just as most biographies of Jackie Kennedy Onassis (but not this one) cover her White House years in detail but ignore the decades she lived after, Sir Paul's biographers concentrate on the Beatle years and pay scant attention to the nearly 35 years that followed.
 
• What did you recently finish reading? Another Piece of My Heart by chick-lit author extraordinaire, Jane Green. This is the tale of Andi, a newly-40 Bay Area bride who is happy with the man of her dreams, but not with his teenage daughter. For me, the most interesting character was Janice, the ex-wife, who has more dimensions that characters like hers are usually given in books like this.


• What do you think you’ll read next?
The Spellman Files by Lisa Lutz. Book #1 in a detective series about Izzy Spellman, who is described as "part Nancy Drew, part Dirty Harry." This series gets a "thumbs up" from Kwizgiver.

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
