Now to decide...

     Which books to bring on the trip! We are trying to decide what to bring and what to leave behind. I imagine we are going to be doing a fair amount of reading (we are both kind of book worms), especially during travel time (plane, bus and train). We have a tentative list of books we want to bring, hopefully our bags will not be too heavy!
  • Long Walk to Freedom- Nelson Mandela
  • Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books- Azar Nafisi 
  • The Story of B- Daniel Quinn
  • The Alchemist, The Pilgramage- Paulo Coelho 
  • Brick Lane- Monica Ali
  • Earth Democracy- Vandana Shiva 
  • What is the What- Dave Eggers
  • The Sleeper Awakes- H. G. Wells
  • The Yacoubian Building- Alaa Al Aswany
  • Clash of Civilizations- Samuel Huntington
  • Young Stalin- Simon Sebag Montefiore
  • Power, Faith and Fantasy: America in the Middle East 1776-Present- Michael Oren
  • Aman: Story of a Somali Girl- Virginia Lee Barnes and N=Janice Boddy
This is another picture by Jennifer Zwick.
