Reading "Lolita" in Tehran: A Memoir in Books
8 journalers for this copy...
Everyone says you don't need to read have read Lolita to read this book, but if you haven't read that, and a bunch of other stuff referred to in this book, you might get a teeny bit frustrated.
I started my copy of this ages ago, and decided that since I'd never read any Nabokov, why not read Lolita before going any further in this book? So that's what I did. I even read Lolita, and got totally sidetracked and never picked this one up again.
But all along, I said that I'd do a bookring of the two books together. Well, even though I haven't finished my copy of this, I found this good-condition copy at Goodwill last night, and now I can put that ring together!
I set up a bookring with this book and Lolita, after many and long ago discussions. This book will begin its travels with its partner next Friday or Saturday.

The book is now on its way to Fifna.
Thanks for this double ring, Antof!
It took me a while to finish; it's just one of those books that doesn't go very fast, but I certainly enjoyed it. Sent both books on their way to brunton11 today.
Thanks for sharing and giving me the opportunity to read a couple of books I probably wouldn't have chosen to buy myself.
Hinerangi has asked to be skipped. I have address details for cat207 and will get both books in the post to her tomorrow.
Thanks Antof9 - a great idea sending the two books out together.
Off to LadyKnightNiko (what a beautiful name!) in tomorrow's mail.
Thanks antof9 for sharing, and cat207 for sending this to me.
WILD RELEASE NOTES:

However, I'm very glad I read this one- thanks for sharing, Antof9! Unwritten Libra has asked to be skipped, so I will mail these to nerdybookgirl before German in the morning.
