What Are You Reading Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Its A Reading Thing. To participate, open the book you are currently reading to page 34 (or 34% in your ebook) and answer these three questions. If you have a blog, leave a link down in the comments so that others can visit and see your post. If not, just leave a note with your answers.
1. What’s the name of your current read?
Killing Patton: The Strange Death of World War II’s Most Audacious General by Bill O’Reilly & Martin Dugard
I’m actually listening to the audio book, but I think I need to stop and just read this one. There are so many footnotes that I am missing with the audio version.
2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share a complete sentence. (or two!)
“At twelve o’clock today two generals are coming to see me to discuss my future employment,” Rommel tells his son. “So today will decide what is planned for me: whether a people’s court or a new command in the east.”
3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?
No way. So far I’ve read about some of the most grizzly battles of WWII. Men spending days without food or water stuck in the foxhole they’ve dug out, waiting for a chance of escape while experiencing frost bite and trench foot. I can barely read about the world of war, I cannot imagine living it.
I am thankful for each and every one of our soldiers – past and present – who have dug in and fought for our country. Thank you all for your service.
