WWW Wednesday #1 (July 8, 2020)

WWW Wednesdays

Hello All,

This is my first WWW Wednesday participation. This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived by Sam on Taking on a World of Words. We just need to answer three questions asked below and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to look at.

I love reading books and I have done some book reviews too in past. So, I thought of trying this meme too. I think it will be exciting to add new books to my reading list every week.

The Three Ws are:

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

What Are You Currently Reading?

Currently I am reading an e-book, a classic novel, Three Men in A Boat by Jerome K. Jerome. I have already finished 4 chapters from this book. It is an interesting story of 3 men and a dog who are planning for a voyage on a boat.

Three Men in a Boat (Three Men, #1)

Summary From Goodreads:

A comic masterpiece that has never been out of print since it was first published in 1889, Jerome K. Jerome’s Three Men in a Boat includes an introduction and notes by Jeremy Lewis in Penguin Classics.

Martyrs to hypochondria and general seediness, J. and his friends George and Harris decide that a jaunt up the Thames would suit them to a ‘T’. But when they set off, they can hardly predict the troubles that lie ahead with tow-ropes, unreliable weather forecasts and tins of pineapple chunks – not to mention the devastation left in the wake of J.’s small fox-terrier Montmorency. Three Men in a Boat was an instant success when it appeared in 1889, and, with its benign escapism, authorial discursions and wonderful evocation of the late-Victorian ‘clerking classes’, it hilariously captured the spirit of its age.

In his introduction, Jeremy Lewis examines Jerome K. Jerome’s life and times, and the changing world of Victorian England he depicts – from the rise of a new mass-culture of tabloids and bestselling novels to crazes for daytripping and bicycling.

What did you recently finish reading?

I recently finished reading a teen love story, Those Were The Days by Jenny Bravo. This is a cute high school love story that reminds of school days. My review of this book is already. I will post it this week.

Those Were the Days (The Moments Series, #1)

Summary From Goodreads

Don’t fall in love in high school.
Don’t fall in love with your best friend.
Don’t fall in love. At all.

When Claudia Lake’s sister Wendy moves back home, everything changes. The boy next door wants to be more than just friends. Her best friend nurses a broken heart with revenge. When it comes to love, Claudia has learned that it’s better to be safe than sorry… or has she?

Those Were the Days is a prequel to Jenny Bravo’s debut novel, These Are the Moments, that explores what it means to be in love in high school, the excitement and fear of a first love, and how to survive broken hearts.

What do you think you’ll read next?

In the coming week, I am looking forward to reading “Vedic Physics: Scientific Origin of Hinduism” by Raja Ram Mohan Roy. I always have an inclination towards my religion and I always want to explore more and know more about it. So, this book can clarify many of my doubts and might answer many of my questions.

Summary from Goodreads

Rigveda was written about five thousand years ago. We do not know much about the scientific achievements of our ancestors. Is it possible that there were highly advanced civilizations in past, whose technological achievements have been completely forgotten? Now there can be an objective verification, because Rigveda has been remarkably well preserved. Ancient Indians went to extreme lengths to preserve the Vedas. They are in the same form today, that they have been several thousand years earlier. The question is why? Why did generations of Indians go through so much trouble to preserve the Vedas, while the apparent meaning seems to be so mundane. The reason is that Vedas are coded, and once you understand that code, it has such a powerful message that is going to transform your perception of humanity. This book describes the scientific meaning of Vedas and other Hindu scriptures and compares them with currently accepted scientific wisdom.

  1. I like this post.
    The reading that I have been doing for a long time is WordPress posts.
    But you have given me inspiration that perhaps I should read a book.
    I always prefer Non-fiction to Fiction, so perhaps I will try a new challenge, and read a Fiction book.
    Reading keeps us young. 🌷😁
