- Shadow of the Swords by Kamran Pasha
- Rooftops of Tehran by Mahbod Seraji
- Embroideries by Marjane Satrapi
Last weekend I went on a little binge at Barnes & Noble. I had a pretty hefty gift card in hand and I just finally had to spend it. I got
Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford
I was looking primarily for these two, so imagine my excitement when they were both on the "Buy 2 Get 1 Free" table! Score! After much deliberation, I chose
South of Broad by Pat Conroy as my free book.
I also got
Heartless by Gail Carriger because I own the other three in the series.
While I was there, this caught my eye:
How to Read Literature Like a Professor: A Lively and Entertaining Guide to Reading Between the Lines by Thomas C. Foster
I'm a little worried about it, but the "lively and entertaining" part gives me hope. I'm doing much better with non-fiction, but mostly I read narrative non-fiction, not "how-to's." We'll see.
So, what do you think? Have you read any of these?
