I have really been into reading and admiring design/artistic blogs and magazines online.

My sister and I are planning a trip to Oman. So, I have been reading the Lonely Planet Guide to Oman, UAE, and Arabian Peninsula. Right now mostly trying to plan out the cities we will visit!
I also will be thinking about loading up my iPad with good reads!

My G-d-Kids' cousin, has published an online magazine, Socially Awkward. It is great! She is a journalist major in college and in her spare time puts together this fun and hip magazine!
Enjoy it and pass it on to your friends. Spread the love!
Zewdy- featured in the magazine! Super cool.

Are you interested in who is nominated for the National Book Awards?
Nicole Krauss is nominated. I have her book on my iPad and I need to start it soon, because she will be reading at Symphony Space, November 15th and I want to be ready for reading. I have listened to her on NPR. She talked about her writing process and basically all that I can discern is that she is a genius. Looking forward to reading her new novel. I loved History of Love. If you haven't read it, do so!

Today is my birthday! Happy Birthday to me. On my flight home from the west coast, I am finishing Edwidge Danticat's book of essays, Create Dangerously. She is one of my favorite writers and I am so excited to see her at the New York Public Library, this Wednesday the 10th of November. Should be a powerful reading.
I'm sad I missed her at the New Yorker Festival this fall with Dave Eggers and Uwem Akpan.
Hopefully I will be able to see her in January though at Symphony Space. Make sure you read ED and possibly even hear her speak!
