This post is a little sad to write as April turned out to be a light reading month. I only finished one book, though I did start several others that I hope to finish in May.
I read The Media Relations Department of Hizbollah Wishes You a Happy Birthday. As a memoir of his childhood and adult life spent living as an American in the mid-east it was really good. Given all that has been going on in that part of the world the last few months, I found it fascinating. He dives deep into six countries and most have been featured in the news lately. Understanding the background of each made what I see on the news everyday much more of a reality. This was available from both the SF and Seattle public libraries as an eBook.
