I just finished a book called "Inside the Kingdom" by Carmen bin Ladin, former sister-in-law of Osama. She was married to one of his many brothers for 9 years, is now divorced. Interesting first person story of the extreme repression Saudi women live in. Not great literature, but an easy, fast, interesting read.
I am currently still trying to finish "Midnight's Children" by Salman Rushdie. My book club read it last month and I never finished it. Very long and a difficult read, but it grows on you if you stick with it.
I am also reading "Little Earthquakes" by Jennifer Weiner, author of "Good in Bed" and "In Her Shoes." This one is about a group of women in a prenatal yoga class that become friends and the life events they help each other through. Each chapter is told by a different woman character. I liked her other books and this one is enjoyable as well. Not deep, just fun.
