    this is definitely one of my top 10 books, and since I read approximately 5 books a month, that is saying a lot!! I would love to share 3 free books with my family and friends….and besides that, I met Mahbod by chance ( I actually think not!) in Ojai.

    Our book club recently read & discussed ‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’ by Khaled Hosseini. We all agreed that it was one of the best books we have read to date & we are looking for other books like this. I have heard good things about this one & would appreciate the chance to read it.
