gift guide: nerd alert!

This is for all your friends and family who loves a good book. These are my personal favourites. 1. Persepolis - great graphic novel about the Iran cultural revolution

2. A Bed of Red Flowers - great for understanding a bit of the Afghanistan history

3. Tears of the Dessert - very moving story about a young doctor in Dafur

4. War Child - this book got me hooked on reading biographies about Sudanese

5. Twenty Letters to a Friend - this is Stalin's daughter's autobiography, and my next read. I can't wait!
