This meme is no more. But that doesn't mean I can't answer the three Wednesday questions on my own. And so I shall.

• What are you currently reading? Robert the Doll. He's a uniquely Key West phenomenon, a stuffed sailor doll believed to be possessed. I've visited him in Key West's East Martello Museum several times and enjoy the stories of his enchantment, and the havoc he causes for those who don't give him his props. So my friends in the Keys gave me this full length, quite geeky biography of the creepy little guy for Christmas. I'm enjoying it thoroughly.

• What did you recently finish reading? I reread the 10th installment in the "Cat Who ..." series, The Cat Who Talked to Ghosts. A strong addition to the uneven series, it has at its core a decent mystery, some apparitions (Robert the Doll would fit in well in Pickax) and the idiosyncratic denizens that populate Black Creek Lane, Middle Hummock, West Middle Hummock and Squunk Corners. When I read these books, I wonder how I would fare in a tiny community like Pickax. Sometimes I think I would enjoy it, sometimes I shudder at the thought.

• What do you think you’ll read next? Man on the Run: Paul McCartney in the 1970s. Another Christmas present.

Let me know what you're reading, and how you're liking it.

  1. I was sad this meme ended. I'm going to continue, too.
