Hi to all.

There hasn't been too much RSVP'ing (yes or no) ?to this month's meeting notice, and I'm thinking some might be on the fence as to whether they want to invest the time and energy it takes ?to read a book, into ?this month's selection. Or maybe you've been busy and haven't thought about it one way or the other! ?

EIther way,The Bookseller of Kabul is not at all a difficult read. It was the bestselling nonfiction book in the history of publishing in Norway, and it's generated an interesting controversy in the aftermath of its publication, check out the article at?http://www.guardian.co.uk/afghanistan/story/0,1284,1046429,00.html or listen to/read an NPR report on the issue at?http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=16626180

So, still not sure if you want to snag a copy? ?Try a short excerpt from the first chapter at http://www.hachettebookgroupusa.com/books/83/0316734500/chapter_excerpt17708.html

Hope to see you the nineteenth (PLENTY of time between now an then to read this not long or difficult book!!!!!!!) ?It's readily available at the library, on the shelves at local bookstores, many used copies are available at Amazon, Powells, etc., and it's out in audio CD format.

PS I just pasted the urls instead of embedding links not because I like ugly email, but didn't want to risk technical difficulties with anybody's email program.
