Very quickly, my WWW Wednesday!

Cover of What's Your Pronoun? Beyond He & She by Dennis BarronWhat are you currently reading?

Non-fiction: What’s Your Pronoun? by Dennis Baron. I’ve got a little bogged down in the history of invented pronouns, and it’s mostly actually so far about finding a gender-neutral pronoun for when you don’t know the gender of the person you’re talking about or are talking gender-neutral possibilities. The next bit I think has more about non-binary pronouns, which I’m more interested in.

Fiction: actually, nothing really actively. I still have Feed half-finished, and should pick it back up.

Cover of Drowned Country by Emily TeshWhat have you recently finished reading?

An ARC of Emily Tesh’s Drowned Country. I enjoyed it at least as much as the first book; it makes a nice little duology, though I would happily read more adventures of Silver’s mother tearing around the country. I am not wholly sure about the end; it feels a little too pat, but also in a nice way.

Cover of Castle Skull by John Dickson CarrWhat are you planning to read next?

As usual lately, I don’t really know. I’d like to finish or finally DNF Castle Skull (John Dickson Carr) and Salt: A World History (Mark Kurlansky), so maybe I will turn my attention back to those!

What are you guys reading?

  1. Of these titles I’m looking forward especially to your review of ‘What’s Your Pronoun?’, Nikki.

    Like you, I have several titles on the go, Maria Sachiko Cecire’s study ‘Re-Enchanted’, Jenny Nimmo’s Snow Spider trilogy, and Edith Wharton’s ‘Ethan Frome’ in particular: non-fiction, children’s fiction and a classic all helping to keep me distracted from the tedium of not going out.

    • It was an interesting survey, though it did keep getting a bit bogged down in reiterating very similar points.

      Sounds like a good selection!
