55, 56, 57, 58. what is a stump in the road that costs a lot of money? school.
The Language of Baklava, Diana Abu-Jaber
Is It Done Yet?, Barry Gilmore
Voyager, Diana Gabaldon
Leaf Man, Ehlert (you caught me- this one is indeed a picture book for children, but i have to write a literary analysis of it and i had to go to the library to check it out, so i'm counting it)
The Language of Baklava freakishly mirrored my life/future life and i loved every bit of it except for the beginning when they kill the lamb. but they felt bad about that, so i'll let it slide. the recipes in it were some of the habibi's favorite and it was really fun learning about another culture through the memories of a child, then the eyes of that child as a grown-up. more later on all of these books, if i get a chance. perhaps not until next year, once my reading goal is completed ;)
