The three ‘W’s are what are you reading now, what have you recently finished reading, and what are you going to read next, and you can find this week’s post at the host’s blog here if you want to check out other posts.

Cover of Improbable Destinies by Jonathan LososWhat are you currently reading?

Some of the same books as last week, plus Jonathan Losos’ Improbable Destinies. It discusses whether evolution can be repeated, and mostly suggests that yes, evolution does tend to repeat itself through convergence. I’m not entirely sold on it because there are some flaws in the experiments as described; I’ll probably look them up for myself and see if the authors address those at all. There are some compelling points, though. Hopefully, I’ll have actually finished this by the time this post goes live in the morning; I’m about to retreat to bed with it for a cwtch.

Cover of A Matter of Oaths by Helen S. WrightWhat have you recently finished reading?

The last thing I finished was A Matter of Oaths, I think! I thought it was great, but my review is already up, so you can go there to see me babble about it.

Cover of Bats in the Belfry by E.C.R.LoracWhat will you be reading next?

I rather fancy picking up another of the British Library Classic Crime series, so I’m thinking of Bats in the Belfry by E.C.R. Lorac. Of course, the ‘Belfry’ in the title is making me think of Sayers’ The Nine Tailors, but I love that book so much I think it’s best to try not to think of it, lest this one suffer in comparison.

I’m also quite tempted to pick up City of Brass finally, since I accidentally read the first chapter today and was quite intrigued.

What are you currently reading?

  1. Shame these books aren’t familiar to me until now. these seem great books and I’m gonna check them out… Especially Improbable Destinies. That’s some intriguing piece. 🙂 Happy reading. 🙂
