  1. I really enjoyed Midnight’s Children, although it took a while to suck me in. I also jsut read Lahiri’s Unaccostomed Earth and really liked it. My recet fave was On Beauty, which I think I read after reading your review. There was something else I read, but what was it? I’ll be back iA. 🙂


  2. Hi Aisha!I just read Them by Nathan McCall. Although it's fiction, I was interested in how he would give a balanced view on the topic gentification in Old Fourth Ward Atlanta. Considering how broad the topic is and the difficulty he must of had in developing his characters, he did a fine job. I'm trying to determine (in my own mind) if policy could or should be a part of addressing the issue. (uuummmm)Not sure what I'll read next…maybe Lahiri's Unaccoustomed Earth. I love her writing style.Will keep you posted.Also, I thought you'd be interested in this link: Teaching Law, Testing Ideas, Obama Stood Apart @ http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/30/us/politics/30law.html?_r=1&adxnnl=1&oref=slogin&partner=rssuserland&emc=rss&pagewanted=all&adxnnlx=1217426593-rkSo2COmM55THfEwmCxsug. I thought of you. I looked one his exams and WISHED I could've sat in during one of class discussions:-)Toi
