Har kin gama 'kill the messenger' din?

Muhsin should open a summary thread so that those that read the books can summarise to those that want the stories.

That is unnecessary, Gogannaka; for this thread as well gives one every chance to tell members of the interesting things he/she encounters while reading his/her book.

are you opposing me sending a summary to inbox?

I oppose it, too. Other members, as well, would want to read the book's summary.

I may have been misinterpreted.
I wanted a thread open for book summaries for those of us that may not have the time to read.
Something like the 'on the couch' thread in chit-chat.

Agreed.
Carry on.

I'm still reading Imam Bukhari's biography.
Very slow.

@UmmuT,

Lol ;D Must you be reading something everyday? I wish I thought that way, too. Though I read everything that comes my way...

I, for example, haven't been reading any novel. I tried to start reading that Mario Puzo's The Family, which you generously sent to me, but due to this and that I cannot. But will soon, inshaAllah, read it.

Ummutameem,

I'll soon start it (The Family), inshaAllah. Although I today "bought" one novel by Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche titled Purple Hibiscus. I think I'll start reading the latter.

Have you ever read Adiche's novel? Her works, as say many people and almost see myself, have been undeservedly hyped. Hence I have been for long wanting to read her; only today I got luck and "bought" one.

BTW, how can't you get Daily Trust? And how is Thisday academic? I can recall when I read the latter newspaper, while I everyday read the former. It's our pride and we should be proud of it.

Again, that book you are reading must be very informative and educative. Enjoy your reading. :)

if u have purple hibiscus forget mario puzo for now. chimamanda adiche is in a league of her own, n dats not an exaggeration, ive read 2 of ha books d one u have n the other side of a yellow sun, both fantastic. she has a new one now, ll buy it soon IA. she has been in d papers a lot lately, literary stuff. she is good, u ll tell me after reading ha book.

we dont get daily trust til d next day, it comes from d north so it does not get here early, n d vendors arent patient, my vendor usually gets it a day late for me, if im lucky, he hasnt brought it since last wk.

u dont think thisday is academic? pls, each story is like 50000 words!!!!!!!!!! if i want dat much analysis ll just buy a text book n read. i dont know how people enjoy it, my fav part is d back page!

d book im reading is really good! i think ill start dat summary we discussed earlier.
