    This is wonderful! I never have the time to read as much as I would like, so I don’t want to waste any time on “trying out” books. I like to read a book that someone else has recommended. I will love reading your blog!
    love,
    Renee

    Hello! I would love to read more of “Stories from the Land of Springs”. In fact, ideally I would love to assign it for my class on Central Asian history. Is the translation completed? Has it been published? Please let me know more about this. Congratulations on all that you do – we need more English translations of Central Asian literature!

  3. Amanda,
    I also love your blog as well as the Book Nest and your Thursday luncheons.
