WWW: Wednesdays

WWW: Wednesdays is hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading. This is a weekly meme that I have been participating in for over a year now.

To play along just answer the following three questions....

*What are you currently reading?
*What did you just recently finish reading?
*What do you think you'll read next?

Dragon's of Light
by Orson Scott Card (ed): A dragon's dozen of stories. Thirteen authors and thirteen illustrators join to bring readers dragons in all their bright and terrible variety. Among the stories: "The Ice Dragon" by George R. R. Martin (illustrated by Alicia Austin) in which a child whose body is never warm finds an ally in a dragon made of ice; "One Winter in Eden" by Michael Bishop (illustrated by Val & John Lakey) in which a dragon lies coiled inside a teacher's heart; "Cockfight" by Jane Yolen (illustrated by Terri Windling) in which a boy steals a dragon and trains it for the cockfights; and "The George Business" by Roger Zelazny (illustrated by Geofry Darrow) in which a knight goes into business with an enterprising dragon.
