Summer Reading

I have temporarily given up on A Dance To the Music of Time.
It's not the book's fault. It's a little slow starting but a lot of books are like that. I think it's me.
I started reading a book that was a birthday gift from the much beloved Skippy. It's called The Story of Layla and Majnun.
I am enjoying the fairytale story style of the book.

After this I'm going to start the most recent David Sedaris book, When You Are Engulfed in Flames. I never miss one of his books.
I've been in the mood for Haruki Murakami. I think I have Kakfa on the Shore at home, waiting to be read.

I've been very distracted lately so it's been hard to read but hopefully that distraction will come to an end soon.

What are YOU reading?

You know, all of your posts should mention me at least once.

I'm 32 Flavors of Amazing!

Wow...I went back and looked and an incredible number of my posts mention you.
You are like some kind of subliminal genius, working your dark magic on my mind!

Currently reading 'Becoming Enlightened.'
Was not as happy with Sedaris as previous books.
Have been recommended to read 'Kafka on the Shore' by another friend.

Just wait until you get undressed one night and find my name stitched into your underwear ...

It'll happen, you know?

I am reading your blog!:)
De, you may know that "Layli/a and Majnun" is originally an Arabic love story. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Layla_and_Majnun)

The best literary work based on this story is done by Nizami, an Iranian poet (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nizami_Ganjavi)

I wished you could read another Nizami's work Haft Paykar "The Seven Beauties" in Persian language and enjoy it. It's great!

my best.

It is great to hear from you!
I am reading Nizami's version of course it's translated since you haven't taught me Persian yet! ;)
