Zeitoun

November 29, 2009

So…I started reading a book this morning called Zeitoun


I haven’t read any reviews, or even a summary..so I don’t know what it is about…It is nonfiction though-based on a true story of a Muslim family.  Abdurhama Zeitoun, a Syrian American, Kathy his wife, and their kids…It takes place in New Orleans…I think it has something to do with the hurricae Katrina.. So far, I’m on page 40, and I like it…It’s very real and the author gets you in the mood…

So this is not a recommendation for the book…but an invitation to read it with me (or after me, cuz I’m going to try to finish it these two days…). I found it in my house but you can find it at Chapters (or Borders/Barnes and Noble/whatever)…

Feel free to share reflections here! InshAllah I will be doing so as I go along with the book!

New Blog?!

November 27, 2009

So…you know how sometimes you just get tired of a book…you seek another one to match your new taste, and after a while, you fall back on your old one because you’re just too used to it and have grown attached to it somehow? lol….That’s what’s been happening to me ever since I started blogging, oh, 5 or 6 years ago…
So, here’s a new one, for a different kind of post variety…How long it will last is a mystery…Allahu a3lam…How often will it be updated? Same answer…Allahu a3lam…but, it’s a new beginning nonetheless…Will HiddenSouls remain? Why of course! What do you think I’ve been rambling about with the old and new notebooks just now? lol 🙂  Plus I hope Daughter of Pearls doesn’t forget sharing her wisdom with us on here inshaAllah as she got us used to!!
