Okay, this was a slow month for me. The only thing I read was Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books by Azar Nafisi. This was an interesting counterpart to the Maureen Corrigan memoir: both analyze their lives by reference to beloved books. But Nafisi's story is set against the backdrop of post-Shah Iran. I found myself getting truly outraged at the constant hardships faced by the Irani people, in particular women, at the hands of the totalitarian Islamist regime. And now that there are more Western captives being held by Iran, this book makes me even more sad and outraged.
This week's Kute Kiddy award goes to G., Miss Thing herself, who was recently awarded this lovely pair of Disney Princess eyewear due to a raging case of astigmatism.
The pink plastic purse/carrying case softened the blow a great deal.
