50 books in 2010 challenge

A friend on my online reading group suggested the challenge of reading 50 books in 2010. That's almost one book a week. I've decided to try this challenge as well. Counting all the books,
from the huge "Fine Balance" to a mini-book about the Darwin Awards and also the audio books I've listened to, I've read six books so far this year, so I'm pretty much on track. I'll write a little bit about it here on the blog when I finish books.

Here's the one I just finished, I'll tell you about the previous ones later. Whenever I remember, I list books I read on Goodreads as well...

Gardens of Water: A Novel Gardens of Water: A Novel by Alan Drew

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I learned more about the relationship of Turkish to Kurdish people. I learned how important it is to be really sensitive to culture, when we go to help people of a culture that is very different to ours. We don't want to destroy, but help.

I've read this book for the One City, One Story, so you'll probably hear more about it later when I go to some of the events
