nearly 4 books. Unfortunately, I finished right in the middle of my fourth book.
Since my check in, I have read the Kindle samples for And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini and Crescent by Diana Abu-Jaber. I decided to download Crescent for my next read, but I'm quite sure And the Mountains Echoed is going straight into my summer "to be read" pile and will be pulled out quickly.
Raising Readers and Writers. It is a delightful book so far about a woman, Sirine, who has an amazing way in the kitchen. Sirine cooks in a Lebanese restaurant and lives with her uncle who is a professor at a university.
Sirine meets Han at a poetry reading one evening and is quite taken by him. As Han, a poet and professor, shares about his life in Iraq before coming to America and Sirine shares about her life in America being raised by her Iraqi immigrant uncle since the death of her parents, the two begin to build a bridge between worlds.
I'm headed back to my book. This challenge has helped me to kick off a little summer pleasure reading. Thanks, Ms. Yingling, for hosting.
