This book tells the story of an Afghan man who devoted his life to books. The author is a journalist who lived with his family to write the book. While it was about books,the subject of women in Afghanistan was in the forefront. The time is 2001, and the Taliban had recently lost power. It is told without judgment, but I felt an overwhelming sadness for the plight of the women and children. And now the Taliban have returned. #foodandlit

I made borani banjan- an eggplant dish with stewed tomatoes and a garlic yogurt sauce. It was good with rice and naan. #FoodandLit Afghanistan 🇦🇫

DivineDiana This looks so good! 👏🏻 16h
keys_on_fire When I first scrolled past this, I thought it was manicotti. Looks like a healthy alternative to that! Obviously with different flavors too… yum!! 15h

Loving a Monday, in spite of it all. ☕️📚🤷‍♀️

Ginger-cardamom sourdough rolls, fresh from the oven after 2 days of preparation, and a wide walk through women in science for research. How‘s your Monday rolling out?

I am glad I finally read this title. It‘s been on my TBR for so long I don‘t remember when I got it; probably a decade ago. Had I been choosing just for the country I probably could have found a more authentic voice. But I learned a bit and I am glad that I am meeting this challenge with books I already owned. Now to find the food. If I go by the book that would be kebab or “Kabul burgers” #foodandlit #foodandlit2022 #afghanistan

tokorowilliamwallace Yes, I was always so impressed with all the little local Middle Eastern cuisine pop-ups, food trucks, and restaurants in nearly every town in Maryland. Quality food for an adventurous day exploring and traveling around. 2d

Thank you for all of the birthday wishes! 🥰

I spent the day at an outdoor music festival (my first in many years!) and didn‘t read a single page. I‘m very sore today from so much standing and walking (thanks, aging!), so I have melted into my couch and am hoping to finish the tagged for #foodandlit

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Beautiful! Happy birthday 🎁🎈🎊 2d

I met my #MarvellousMay goals by finishing Beyond the Tower, and starting the tagged book

I have just reached part 3 so I am nearly halfway through.
It‘s a tough read and I have a feeling it‘s going to get worse, but at the same time I am enjoying the story ☺️

My belated #foodandlit #cuba read. I loved this book- told from three viewpoints, in a time and place I know very little Cuba and the fight for Freedom from Spain, and simultaneously about one of my favorite times and places- historical NYC. I loved the characters and the writing and am so glad I read it.

KristiAhlers This might be my favorite of hers so far 3d
Texreader So glad you liked it. It was a fascinating read 3d
Catsandbooks I enjoyed this one too! 3d

Heartbreaking. Also, how does this happen? It does not seem functional or sustainable. #foodandlit #afghanistan

Texreader The stories from Afghanistan are heartbreaking and so sad to know they‘re true 4d
Chrissyreadit @Texreader @Butterfinger is there a challenge page on StoryGraph? 3d
Butterfinger @Chrissyreadit yes there is. And this is one of my favorite books to read aloud. 3d
Chrissyreadit @Butterfinger I‘m a mess and cannot find it 🥹 3d
