My officemate is leaving for Pakistan tonight. She asked several of us to loan her some books as she will probably have much of a life outside of work while she's there.
What I brought (in no particular order):
The New Granta Book of the American Short Story - because short story collections are easy to dip in and out of while traveling
Nine Parts of Desire: The Hidden World of Islamic Women - an important part of the target population
The Wilder Shores of Love: The Exotic True-Life Stories of Isabel Burton, Aimee Dubucq de Rivery, Jane Digby, and Isabelle Eberhardt - because 19th century women travelers are always fun to read about
In other news: finally met mysteena and looking forward to hanging out this summer!
