In the meantime, I am reading books about life in the Middle East. Not to say that the following post is what its like for women in this country. Our western minds are curious about life in this region and the books Ive been reading have really been eye openers!
In the Land of Invisible Women is a book about a wester,muslim woman's experience in Saudi working in a hospital. Her experience is dated (pre 9/11) but valid nonetheless. She now resides in the same city I went to graduate school :-).
Princess is a book I am now reading about the experiences of a Saudi princess. Ive not much to say as I just started last night but am excited to read. I couldnt put the last book down.Im wondering how Ill respond to this book.
And now for the movie!!
The Stoning of Soraya M can be seen instantly on Amazon if you are subscribed. I have not the words to describe the way this movie makes you feel. There are parts that arent for the weak stomach or heart for that matter. It is based on a true story. There is also a book. Im sure its more detailed than the movie. I definitely recommend it.
Im so happy to be reading again and not just reading things on the internet,lol. Thats not really reading if I do say so myself. I will need serious help when I transition from Kindle to KINDLE FIRE!
Happy reading...or watching
