It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.  It's "where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.  It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list."

I love the cover of Septembers of Shiraz! There's just something about the purple with the teapot. And, that's great that you're reading a book set in Libya given everything that is going on
