Tysons Corner, VA --August, 23, 2007

Reading A Thousand Splendid Suns, by Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner. She’d been waiting for it at the library. Her favorite book? Whatever she’s reading at the moment.

What she's just finished that’s been good--On Agate Hill, by Lee Smith and Ines of my Soul, by Isabelle Allende. She’s read most of these authors' books.

If she were to write her own book, it’d be about family, probably a fictional account of her own family.

She’s lived in the DC metro area for ten years and likes it for the so many language, things to experience, the multiculturalism.

A book that’s helped her come closer to someone—it was a book about bike messengers that her husband, who used to be a messenger, brought home and read. She read it after him and she was able to put his whole life into perpective. The book: The Immortal Class: Bike Messengers and the Cult of Human Power by Travis Culley.

They don’t really share books--he’s into World of Warcraft now.

When she first met him, she was interested in him because he was reading Moby Dick and said he loved Ernest Hemingway. It was love at first book-knowledge.
