dara (daradahlawy) | 44 comments 3. The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls

I have this book for a long time, and just read it.
I don't know why i didn't read it from the first time i got it.
This book really full of dream, sadness, cleverness, and anything that you wish how wonderful the life is about.

dara (daradahlawy) | 44 comments 12. How To Be An American Housewife by Margareth Dilloway

The first time i got this book is the same day when the Tsunami hit Japan. so i curious about japanese people. They are very modern, amazingly discipline, and you can clearly see it, how they handle his terrible disaster.Every newspaper describe it.

This book is really good, for people who love to learn another culture ,east-west thing. but for me, the ending is lil bit easy. How to Be an American Housewife by Margaret Dilloway

dara (daradahlawy) | 44 comments 14. Stone Fox by John Reynolds Gardiner

This is very simple children book like Heidi.But at the end the story very heart breaking, shocking ending. the story based on fiction, only the end is based on true event. so sad.

What I Talk About When I Talk About Running by Haruki Murakami
When I talk about when I talk about running-Haruki Murakami

This book is very amazing. I love it. It’s a memoir. He talks about being a runner and a writer.
He try to explain how to be a runner, and how running made him a good writer. I actually hate running, this kind of sport make me sick, but murakami explain how pain is inevitable and suffering is an optional.
Very good, and I miss this book already after I finish it.
