Part of being on vacation is relaxing and reading which is easy for me to do at my sister's house because my kids want nothing to do with me. Ergo (hey, there's an SAT word for ya), I try to take advantage of that free time. I just finished "A Thousand Splendid Suns" by the same guy who wrote "The Kite Runner." I highly recommend both of them. Spare prose, great character development, and great story telling make them page turners. However, I have to admit that I had a hard time getting through "A Thousand Splendid Suns" because it is heart wrenching, and while I was on the plane, I almost stopped reading it. However, I pressed on and was rewarded. I would have to say it is a favorite. Now I am on to my next book by one of my favorite authors, Anne Tyler. If I'm not mistaken, I think my bloggy friend Kimberley from "The Holey Pokey Life" is an Anne Tyler fan as well.
