W…W…W…Wednesdays – February 9, 2011

February 9, 2011

W… W… W… Wednesdays are hosted by MizB at Should be Reading and asks the following three questions:

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

My Answers …

What are you currently reading?

I am halfway through So Vast the Prison by Assia Djebar and am really enjoying it.

So Vast the Prison

Excerpt from Goodreads:

In So Vast the Prison, Assia Djebar takes full advantage of the novel as a flexible art form, moving majestically between narrative and history, bending the book’s shape to reflect its concerns. In rich, poetic prose, she describes the women of Algeria and their inner lives of faith, longing, and grief.

What did you recently finish reading?

I just finished reading The Subjection of Women by John Stuart Mill and Harriet Taylor Mill for the Year of Feminist Classics Challenge.  Remarks on the book can be found HERE.

The Subjection of Women

What do you think you’ll read next?

I plan on reading The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton for the Age of Innocence Read Along and for the Back to the Classics Challenge as my Pulitzer Prize winning novel.
The Age of Innocence

Excerpt from Goodreads:

Winner of the 1921 Pulitzer Prize, The Age of Innocence is Edith Wharton’s masterful portrait of desire and betrayal during the sumptuous Golden Age of Old New York, a time when society people “dreaded scandal more than disease.”
