It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

New Review Book Arrived



Children of Dust
A Memoir of Pakistan
Ali Eteraz


Publisher: HarperOne
Release Date: October 13, 2009
format: Hardcover (6x9)
pages: 352
Ages: 18+
genre/category: memoir

from the publisher:
Children of Dust is a searing memoir revealing the truth about militant Islamic fundamentalism in Pakistan and the culture shock of moving to the U.S. Author Ali Eteraz is a compelling young male Muslim voice, and in telling his coming-of-age story he captures not merely pain, but also the love, laughter, and pathos of Muslim life.

An extraordinary personal journey from Islamic fundamentalism to a new life in the West.

Astonishingly honest, darkly comic, and beautifully told, Children of Dust is an extraordinary adventure that reveals the diversity of Islamic beliefs, the vastness of the Pakistani diaspora, and the very human search for home.
