I am loving this book so much that I went to Starbucks on my lunch break yesterday strictly to find out what would happen next! If you have not read “A Thousand Splendid Suns” I HIGHLY recommend it. The author, Khaled Hosseini, also wrote “The Kite Runner”. We read his first novel, “The Kite Runner”, for book club about a year ago. Book club is usually really code for ‘girls night at someone’s house with wine and appetizers’ without much talk about the book but “The Kite Runner” really sparked a lot of discussion and I have a feeling “A Thousand Splendid Suns” will do the same.

Our meeting is this Thursday and will be at my friend Heather’s house. She has a really cute blog, Tiny’s Treats, and is always cooking up something yummy in her kitchen. I’m excited to see what she has planned for our meeting on Thursday!

Taking an hour to read at lunch really was a nice break in the day, especially with the pretty weather. I usually take my lunch to work so coming up with something to do besides eat on my lunch break can be difficult at times. Of course I do have errands to run from time to time and its always easy to go shopping or breeze through Target. But that usually leads to me buying things I don’t really need and just spending money because I’m bored. I was so glad I had remembered to stick my book in the car yesterday morning. I may have to make this ‘reading lunch’ a regular thing!

I loved the book and was dying on the CB trip b/c Hailey was so far behind me and I couldn't discuss it much with Lacey b/c I didn't want Hailey to overhear anything. I have a feeling this will be one of the rare book clubs where we actually discuss the book!

I have two things planned for bookclub, a simple casserole I've been craving, and an appetizer to test out for Michelle's shower.

I have been wanting to read this ever since I finished the Kite Runner...which was like 3 years ago! Maybe over the long weekend:-)

Cute blog!
