1. Discovered while blog hopping:
Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood, a graphic novel, a memoir of growing up in Iran, also made into an animated film with Catherine Deneuve's voice, among others. Also, Satrapi's Embroideries, individual stories by family members, in a book which readers think is too short.
2. Discovered at the library:
Traveling with Pomegranates: A Mother and Daughter Journey to the Sacred Places of Greece, Turkey, and France, by Sue Monk Kidd and Anne Kidd Taylor, the audio version, read by the authors.
That mother-daughter travel memoir made me want to read The Secret Life of Bees, on audio, of course! I prefer to read thrillers and mysteries but to listen to introspective books. Then I'll also have to see this film.
That's all for now!
