Thanks to everybody who voted on which books I should read on my bus ride home. I ended up taking Honeymoon in Tehran by Azadeh Moaveni and Special Topics in Calamity Physics by Marisha Pessl.
I finished Honeymoon in Tehran this morning, and although I didn’t love it as much as I loved Moaveni’s first book, Lipstick Jihad, I think it’s a book worth checking out. I decided I’m going to do a Q&A review about the book, since there was so much interest, so leave any questions you have in the comments and I’ll use them as I write.
In other quick news (I have to finish this up before my relatives get here for Dad’s birthday), I’ve had a fabulous reading week. I finished Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides before I left Madison on Friday, finally got through Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ’72 by Hunter S. Thompson on the first part of the bus ride home, and, like I said, finished Honeymoon in Tehran this morning. That’s the most books I’ve finished in a week this year, I think. Yay!
I hope everyone is having a great week, and I hope to get back to regularly scheduled programming (and designated time on Twitter and reading blogs) after things calm down at the end of this week.
Don’t forget — leave any questions about Honeymoon in Tehran in the comments and I’ll address them in my review!
