The Dressmaker of Khair Khana & SITS

Last month, when I read that SITStas would be reading The Dressmaker of Khair Khana, by Gayle Tzemach Lemmon, for the SITSGirls Book Club, I sat straight up, excited and devoured the post.

This book appears to be one that I will love reading.  It is a true story about a woman, living in Afghanistan, under Taliban rule who manages to create a way to support herself and family against numerous odds.

And I finally have my copy in my hands today!  The clock cannot tick fast enough 'til I can start reading it later tonight!  What a perfect way to start our Spring Break here, don't you think?! :>

Obviously, I'm not able to review what I have yet to read, but thankfully, SITSta, Andrea of Great Thoughts has written a review that you can check out to see if this is something you might like.

And guess what?!  It gets even better.  The SITSGirls are having a Book Club Twitter party on May 5th, using the hashtag #SITSBooks and.....wait for it.....the author, Gayle Tzemach Lemmon, will be participating.  Now, how cool is that?!  (And if you're not a SITSGirl yet, what are you waiting for? It's a great group of women bloggers! :>)

Okay, if you'll excuse me now, I'm off to try to get the clock to tick tock a little faster (hmmm...usually I'm trying to slow time down, trying to speed it up is a new one for me!).  The fact that my boy has a minimum day, leading into the arrival of Spring Break....finally (!!!), should help.

What are you reading right now?  Are you fan of crisp paper pages to thumb as you read or have you made the switch to an e-reader?

Disclosure:  I purchased The Dressmaker of Khair Khana myself.  All opinions are my own.  And yes, the links to the book are affiliate links.  All other links are informational and great sites!


  1. Fun, fun, KARE! I wish my reading list wasn't SOOOOOO long! Enjoy! xoxo!

  2. Ah! Now that I read your description I realize I have heard of this book. It sounds so good! Hope you enjoy it, let me know how it is!

  3. Ooooh sounds wonderful! Yes, I am still a fan of crisp paper. I love watching CBS's Sunday Morning and today they had a lovely segment about The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I suppose I read it in school but am not remembering it. So I'd like to read this book soon. Have a great week ahead!

  4. That sounds great! I NEED to pick up a copy somewhere. Yes. I still read paper. :)

  5. Can hardly wait to see what you think...I am sure it will be a winner. xo

  6. I don't want to admit publicly what I am reading (Janet Evanovich! LOVE her stuff, but I know it does not have substance!). And I need a real book in my hands...can't do the ereaders.

  7. I heard the author on the Diane Rehm show on NPR one morning. Sounds like an amazing story!
