Weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

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

I’m currently reading Mr. Playboy: Hugh Hefner and the American Dream, by Steven Watts. It’s very readable nonfiction, and a subject that I’m interested in, so although it’s long, it’s going just fine.

What did you recently finish reading?

I finished Lee Child’s 61 Hours this weekend. It was great like all of his, but I found the ending to be a frustrating cliff-hanger. Guess I’ll have to read more of him…

What do you think you’ll read next?

There are always a bunch floating around in my head, but I’m feeling pretty inspired about The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas right about now. Perhaps I’ll go ahead and set it aside. Mr. Playboy shouldn’t take but a few more days.

  1. I read The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas not too long ago and really liked it. I may have to set aside the Count of Monte Cristo for one of these days in the future. I hope you enjoy it 🙂

  2. I remember enjoying it in high school long ago – I’m excited about discovering it again. I’ll definitely blog about it!

  3. There are so many “older” books that I want to read, and can’t believe I still have never read them. I haven’t read ANY Jane Austin books, Dumas, Steinbeck…. Seriously. And I call myself a reader. *Hangs head in shame*

  4. WHAT! I can’t believe you’ve never read….

    No, just kidding. There are too many books in the world (GOOD books even) for any of us to have read them all. I’m sure you’ve read a lot that I haven’t, and vice versa. That said, Austen, Dumas, and Steinbeck would be worth your time! Start with Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, for sure, I think. I have only read The Count of Monte Cristo by Dumas so I can only recommend it. Steinbeck’s written a lot of good; you could start with Cannery Row or Of Mice and Men since both are nice and short. I really enjoyed Travels with Charley, too. Enjoy!!

    This is one reason I’m doing the Classics Challenge!
