My haul from the #torontoreferencelibrary sale this week! $3.50 for the lot!

PurpleyPumpkin Wow, I had no idea that they have book sales! Is it ongoing or at specific times? I'm not near the Reference Library, but would make a special trip if I knew there was a book sale. 2y
PurpleyPumpkin Great haul btw. 👍🏽 2y
forrestlaur @PurpleyPumpkin they have a used book store that has sales year round and then once a year they do a big clean out with really cheap prices! 2y
PurpleyPumpkin Great to know, thanks!😉 2y

Day 3 - one word title 🦊 #bookstagram #riotgram #riotgrams #readharder2016

Brenley I had similar feelings about Pax! What were your thoughts? 3y
forrestlaur @Brenley I felt the ending was too rushed. All the sudden everything was happening and nothing got resolved really. I wanted to see more in depth into the life of the boy and his relationship with his dad and the grief of losing his mother. What about you? 3y
Brenley @forrestlaur yes! I completely agree. I thought there could have been more of an ending. Like there really needed to be some sort of epilogue or final chapter. 3y

I have never read so many beautifully constructed sentences as were in this incredible novel. The plot on its own was compelling but Khaled Hosseini's words brought depth to the emotions and inner struggle of the two protagonists that took it above and beyond my expectations.

Finished this book over a week ago and still struggling to find one that is good enough to hold my attention after this. Loved the imagery in the final sentence of this chapter.
