It has been a while

The last “Books” post was in July…and I have read a few books since then. 🙂 I am pretty sure that I’ve forgotten a few.

Freakonomics by Steven Levitt, Stephen J Dubner

Tablets of the Divine Plan: revealed by Abdu’l-Baha to the North American Bahais

One People One Planet: The Adventures of a World Citizen by Andre Brugiroux
Amazing story of the journey of one man who hitchhiked around the world.

Summon up Remembrance and Arches of the Years Marzieh Gail
These two books have become some of my favorites…it is about the first Persian-American Baha’i family, and gives a glimpse into the life of the early believers, as well as a fascinating perspective on Persian culture.

Still reading:
What Is the What by Dave Eggers
Shoutout to Bill O. for sending me this book…It is about the Lost Boys of Sudan. Incredible book, although sometimes painful to read.

The Great Adventure by Florence Mayberry
heartwarming, sweet, and amusing.

Shoghi Effendi: The Range and Power of His Pen by Ali Nakhjavani

  1. You’ll have to let me know how “What is the What” goes. I have a kind of love/hate relationship with Mr. Eggers’ writing. I really liked “Heartbreaking Work” but I didn’t even make it halfway through “You Shall Know Our Velocity.”

  2. Hi Sholeh,

    where did you purchase Shoghi Effendi : The Range and Power of His Pen. I have been trying to locate this online for a while. I know its on the French Distribution Servicve site but not for online purchase.

  3. It is for sale here in the Holy Land for the staff at the BWC, I don’t know when it will be available in the USA. Sorry!
