What Are You Reading Wednesdays #WAYRW is a weekly feature on It’s A Reading Thing. It’s fairly straight forward. Just answer a few simple questions about the book you are currently reading and the post it. If you use the image above, please make sure you link it back to It’s A Reading Thing.
How to participate:
Grab the book you are currently reading and answer three questions:
1. What’s the name of your current read?
The Mine by John A. Heldt
2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share a couple of sentences.
“Oh, yes. It was a lovely gesture, one that made a big impression. But it doesn’t explain who you are or what you’re doing here. Care to tell me the particulars?”
Joel appreciated the way that Ginny blew through his bullshit. He knew he would have to come up with answers sooner or later, but he wasn’t sure what kind. Could he possible explain magic mines and time travel without inviting skepticism, ridicule, and phone calls to mental health authorities?
3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?
I’m not sure, yet. I’ve barely begun the book, so I’m not entirely sure what is even going on. But here’s the book’s description:
In May 2000, Joel Smith is a cocky, adventurous young man who sees the world as his playground. But when the college senior, days from graduation, enters an abandoned Montana mine, he discovers the price of reckless curiosity. He emerges in May 1941 with a cell phone he can’t use, money he can’t spend, and little but his wits to guide his way. Stuck in the age of swing dancing and a peacetime draft, Joel begins a new life as the nation drifts toward war. With the help of his 21-year-old trailblazing grandmother and her friends, he finds his place in a world he knew only from movies and books. But when an opportunity comes to return to the present, Joel must decide whether to leave his new love in the past or choose a course that will alter their lives forever.
