Oh my god I love A Thousand Splendid Suns, it is so sad at the end xx Much better than The Kite Runner! Im waiting on Emma Donaghues The Room but someone said its a bit too dark for a holiday read lol
It was sad but a fantastic read. This break I will be reading a factual book about a mother who lost her daughter and the dogged determination and red tape she had to get through to fight for her daughter's killer to be re-tried for her death following his acquittal. I know it sounds very dark but honestly I am itching to read it.

I DID have two books for this year, "The Greek For Love" by James Chatto, and "Greece On My Wheels" by Edward Enfield. Unfortunately, I could not keep my nose out of "The Greek For Love", and have already read it twice!
For hubby, I found "Sharpes Trafalgar" and "Sharpes Waterloo", by Bernard Cornwell for 50p each on a local book stall. We both enjoyed the series on TV, so I am hoping they will prove a good read.
I too have a Kindle, but as yet haven't played with it much. Did manage to download about fifty free books from Amazon though, bonus!
