Aims42 One of the cookbooks my mom has automatically opens up to my favorite recipes 😋 It‘s a Betty Crocker cookbook she got as a wedding gift 35+ years ago. She cooked it a lot when I lived at home and I request it when I visit her now ❤️ 3d

Really impressive book of short stories translated from Arabic, covering so many aspects of life and relationships. It made me think of the phrase ‘life‘s rich pageant‘ and I was so impressed at how it crammed so many versions of different lives in the Middle East into one book. It absolutely ran the gamut of human emotions, sometimes funny sometimes poignant, sometimes joyful. I really recommend this

Waiting for a friend in a cosy coffee shop and it‘s dark outside, they‘re playing A Case Of You by Joni Mitchell which is one of my fave songs of all time, and I have an hour to read drink coffee and catch up with Litsy. Then dinner and wine and bus back through lit up London to my boyfriend. Feeling very happy right now!

IndoorDame Sounds perfect! I loved that book! It‘s one I read at least 15 years ago and haven‘t thought about for a long time. 7d

This has been unread in my room for around ten years I think, which I feel very bad about as I swear I‘ve always been ‘just about‘ to read it. I also promised myself I‘d read 50 books off my tbr back list this year which doesn‘t look all that manageable at this stage in November - nice to get stopping to this one though!

This Non-Western Civ Lit class is the best idea I‘ve ever had! I don‘t know why she has chosen the works that she has but I am so grateful! A Season of Madness is probably my favorite story. Many of our works have been characters caught between tradition and modernity.

BarbaraBB Seems like a great class. Keep us posted about other books you read in there! 3w
AshleyHoss820 @BarbaraBB I will! So far, we‘ve read Selected Short Stories by Rabindranath Tagore, In the Shade of Spring Leaves by Higuchi Ichyo, Love in a Fallen City by Eileen Chang and this book! 😊😊😊 3w
BarbaraBB Wow. I only know Tagore... 3w
AshleyHoss820 @BarbaraBB They were all wonderful! I‘m gathering that Tagore‘s short stories are better than his novels. 😊 3w

One of our favorite recipes from one of our oldest cookbooks. I can‘t remember when we got the book, but I know this Greek shrimp with tons of melted feta is one of the first recipes we made out of it. Still one of the best.

Bookzombie That looks delicious! 3w
Lynnsoprano @Bookzombie Truthfully, as good as it looks, it tastes 10 times better. Just about my favorite dish ever. 3w

Escape from Syria | Samya Kullab

Pickpick

My last one for tonight and for the month...this graphic novel depicts a Syrian family‘s life from when they first knew they had to leave, through being a refugee, to eventual resettlement.....all the way to the point where they finally realize they can never return home. Very powerful and moving, and sadly very timely years after it was written.

Held hostage for almost five years, 4 of them in solitary confinement, this was the book Waite wrote in his head, and committed to paper when he was eventually released. I could sit an listen to this man talk for hours. #NowWeAreFree
