The Kite Runner is the story of Amir, a Sunni Muslim, who struggles to find his place in the world because of the aftereffects and fallout from a series of traumatic childhood events. An adult Amir opens the novel in the present-day United States with a vague reference to one of these events, and then the novel flashes back to Amir's childhood in Afghanistan.
On my To-Read list
Book Club, Worth Reading, Khaled Hosseini, Books Worth, Favorite Book, Runners, Kites
The Kite Runner - Kindle edition by Khaled Hosseini. Literature & Fiction Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com. Great view of a small city/town and feel of despair
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. "Traces the unlikely friendship of a wealthy Afghan youth and a servant's son, in a tale that spans the final days of Afghanistan's monarchy through the atrocities of the present day." -NoveList
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini - "I became what I am today at the age of twelve, on a frigid overcast day in the winter of 1975."
Khaled Hosseini seduces us with his evocative voice then shatters his fairytale with shocking reality in "The Kite Runner". Books just don't get much better than this.
“It was only a smile, nothing more. It didn't make everything all right. It didn't make ANYTHING all right. Only a smile. A tiny thing. A leaf in the woods, shaking in the wake of a startled bird's flight. But I'll take it. With open arms. Because when spring comes, it melts the snow one flake at a time, and maybe I just witnessed the first flake melting. - Amir” ― Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner
The Kite Runner - Khaled Hosseini // Another pinner: "If you haven't read this book you NEED to!!!"
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini is one of my favorite books.
The Kite Runner. Just finished reading this for book club.
The Kite Runner - a book worth reading
Loved this book!

Worth Reading, Ernest Hemingway, Books Worth, Reading List, Favorite Books, Sun
The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway. A book I "should" have read in high school. A friend I trust says this is his all-time favorite book, so that's something.
I was a student library aide in elementary high school. Fell in love with Hemingway about 9th grade and went thru a period of intense admiration for his lifestyle, ex-pat status, bullfighting in Spain, etc... The Sun Also Rises, Ernest Hemingway.

A group of American & British expatriates travel from Paris to Festival of San Fermín in Pamplona to watch running of bulls and bullfights. An early & enduring modernist novel.

Books. Books, books, books. I read a lot, specially when the magic makes my body hurt too much and I get to bum around the apartment. It's good for learning stuff - I know a little about most things, and a lot about some of it
#Books I am fascinated with old books and I relish in the smell and feel of an old piece of literature. I cannot imagine an old book being thrown in the garbage hence I take old novels and preserve the past for the present generations to experience. https://www.etsy.com/shop/volumevii

#Literature & #Fiction: Wonderstruck: Awaken to the Nearness of God by Margaret Feinberg. Just like you, Margaret Feinberg longs to live in such a way that makes her feel fully alive. She suspects she's not the only one whose sense of splendor and delight has faded with the demands of modern living. What do we do when holy awe is replaced by unholy indifference? When hope is diminished to a manageable emotion? When love becomes a fleeting expression in short supply? Click The Picture!

No but guys, /this/. "Think" lies in the shadow of the books, it's a result, a product. The light? I don't know, the light is the idea to pick a book up and just read it. Books are the bridge.

I love all of Kate Morton's novels but this one is my favorite. She writes mystery novels that rely heavily on flashing forward and back in time in the UK. They are all slightly Gothic, painstakingly plotted, and romantic to some degree. I highly recommend them to Anglophiles and mystery/romance lovers everywhere.
