Reading Status

I finally finished Girls of Riyadh: A Novel (Rajaa Alsanea) after two weeks. I've chosen my bedtime book: Suddenly Supernatural: School Spirit (Elizabeth Cody Kimmel). There are so many roads to turn down right now as far as the next primary book to read: Pakistani Bride (Bapsi Sidhwa), Brick Lane (Monica Ali), Life Isn't All Ha Ha Hee Hee (Meera Syal) . . . The list is so long. I haven't forgotten about Uwem Akpan or Jhumpa Lahiri. Ack! Where next?

    Hi, i am salman from Pakistan, reached here via a google search :)

    Its embarrassing, but i am not kidding here, its a serious request.

    is it possible for you to donate "Girls of Riyadh" and send it to me at my home address in Pakistan.

    if it is possible, it will be really great and so kind and nice of you :)

    after reading it, i will donate it to my local library.

    And, if its not possible, its ok too.

    with regards

    Be sure to include your address!

    Also, please don't be embarrassed: When I'm done with a book, I always wish I had someone to give it to.

    Thank you, Salman, for letting me know and I'm glad that you are keeping in touch!

    I'd be happy to pass along any novels, any time.

    I'm sorry it took so long to get there.
