Look! I’m knitting a sock!!
Confession :: this post isn’t about knitting but a post without a picture is, you know, meh!
I just finished a book and the words continue to linger with me. Does this happen to you sometimes when you read something powerful, or watch a movie that’s especially moving?
At first, I picked the audiobook version to listen to and I wish I had switched to the actual book with pages earlier on because the narrator, while very good, sounded more Middle Eastern than Afghani. However, this didn’t spoil the storyline and the way the characters were developed through this fascinating book. I just couldn’t put it down!
Crisscrossing in time, The Pearl That Broke Its Shell interweaves the stories of two remarkable women who are separated by a century but share the same courage and dreams…
Ultimately, I wrote this story to share the experience of Afghan women in a fictional work that is made up of a thousand truths.

If you’re looking for a great read, I highly recommend this book!
I used to read voraciously until the crafting bug sort of took over. I missed reading but then, I discovered audiobooks! Craft and listen? At the same time?? The ultimate match! Some books however, are best read… crinkly pages and all!
I’ve challenged myself to read more this year (scroll down the right sidebar for my 2015 Goodreads challenge).
Are you a bookworm too? I’d love to hear your recommendations.
