A Thousand Splendid Suns
I just got done reading this book today by author Khaled Hosseini. This book was amazing. So many emotions ran through me while reading it. The book tales the life of 2 women and their journey through life in Afghanistan. I can't even begin to imagine the struggles they went through. There were many moments while reading that I had to put the book down because I was so overcome with emotion and sadness. I am SO thankful for the choices that I am given to me as an American, a women, and a wife. Read this book.
Big Picture Scrapbooking (yes, my favorite site at the moment...) is running a book club throughout 2008. Each month they will highlight a different book. This is a free "class". Once registered you can enter the Reading Room and discuss the book with others. Although I didn't put it on my list of New Years Resolutions, I'm adding to it---read more books! Hopefully this book club will encourage me to read more often.
