I just finished reading Elsewhere, Home by Leila Aboulela which I thought was excellent. Really looking forward to this one.

I happen to have gotten my hands on a copy already, as I was ordering titles for the 50AW challenge, so I'm ready!

Oooh I read it - and it's really really great, so I recommend finding a copy if you can :)
(or something else of hers, I'm guessing her other works are good too)

I've got it in hand, saving it for some airplane travel in September. But this is a good reminder to get in a few coffee shop hours to finish off whatever I have in line in front of this one. :D

September started and so did I by reading this promising book by Leila Abouleila. Who else is reading?

I kind of had a false start (?) and read it last month - I ordered it for my 50AW readings before it won the wote :) But I really loved the book and would like to discuss it!
