Sunday Reading

I’m still at the beautiful coast and the sun is actually shining. Gorgeous. I’m thinking that after a nice warm bowl of my friends’ turkey chilli I might head out and go read my book on the sand. Of course, this may be a very unrealistic goal since it tends to be very windy on the beach…but we shall see.

Book of the moment: 1000 Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. I’ve heard rave reviews, so I’m rather excited to dive in.

Here’s the description on Goodreads:

A Thousand Splendid Suns is a breathtaking story set against the volatile events of Afghanistan’s last thirty years, from the Soviet invasion to the reign of the Taliban to post-Taliban rebuilding, that puts the violence, fear, hope and faith of this country in intimate, human terms. It is a tale of two generations of characters brought jarringly together by the tragic sweep of war, where personal lives, the struggle to survive, raise a family, find happiness, are inextricable from the history playing out around them.Propelled by the same storytelling instinct that made The Kite Runner a beloved classic, A Thousand Splendid Suns is at once a remarkable chronicle of three decades of Afghan history and a deeply moving account of family and friendship. It is a striking, heartwrenching novel of an unforgiving time, an unlikely friendship, and an indestructible love, a stunning accomplishment.

Sounds pretty good right?

I’m off to the beach…hopefully I won’t get blown away.
