Some recent packages have beefed up my ‘to read’ list. I got the new book by the author of The Kite Runner (one of my favorites), titled A Thousand Splendid Suns. I also got a book I’m excited to read called Good Muslim, Bad Muslim that delves into the rise of muslim extremists, from, I think, their point of view. The most interesting book that someone has sent me was written by the sender himself, titled Red Meat Cures Cancer, it’s a satire about America.
I’m so glad I got these because I had run out of books and attempted to better myself by reading a classic, The Sound and The Fury, which to me was classically awful. NOT my style. I left it at an Iraqi house thinking maybe they would appreciate it more.
