Dear Loyal Blog Readers,
I love anything that allows young Kurdish woman to be part of activities and events. In particular reading; something very lousy in my part of the world (don't get me started on the bit where we don't even have proper book shops, you know the Waterstones type, nor a decent local library. Anyyyhow).
This is where Poppy comes in, bringing her book club to Kurdistan, Erbil.

Two nights back I was online in one of the book club gatherings in Notting Hill, it was a tiny bit past my bedtime (you know, time difference) but I loved listening and watching how they run their book clubs! And it was amazing meeting the lovely group. Lots of ideas for when we meet here.

Don't you just love how woman- young and older- come together once a month, some don't even know one another to exchange ideas and views on a book they have all read. There is a lot to benefit from this process. And as I learned lots of laughter too. So it's an enjoyable time and something to look forward to.

I love how we can come together despite our background, country we live in, religion we practice and just share ideas and views.
Thanks Poppy for giving me the opportunity and sending over books for us to enjoy.
Now, I shall go and continue my Friday morning ritual. Cleaning.
Lots of love from
My Nest in Kurdistan
