Book Notes, a Review – Master of the Jinn

August 13, 2010

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

New Review:

An intricate and excellent new review of Master of the Jinn has been added to its page on Amazon.com. You can read it in its entirety HERE.

Master of the Jinn in INDIA.

Alhamdulillah! Master of the Jinn will be published in India.

Ebooks:

Amazon.com has reported that it sold more Ebooks in 2010 than hardback books. I can see Ebooks also outselling paperbacks in the future, especially since the Kindle book reader has been discounted to $114.00. And Master of the Jinn has sold as many or more Kindle Ebooks than paperbacks in the last few months.

Ramadan Mubarak!

Ya Haqq!


You only have what you give!

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

Paralyzed and silent in her bed, my daughter Paula taught me a lesson that is now my mantra: You only have what you give. It’s by spending yourself that you become rich. …The pain of losing my child was a cleansing experience. I had to throw overboard all excess baggage and keep only what is essential. Because of Paula, I don’t cling to anything anymore. Now I like to give much more than I receive. I am happier when I love than when I am loved. I adore my husband, my son, my grandchildren, my mother, my dog, and frankly I don’t know if they even like me. But who cares? Loving them is my joy.

Give, give, give–what is the point of having experience, knowledge, or talent if I don’t give it away? Of having stories if I don’t tell them to others? Of having wealth if I don’t share it? I don’t intend to be cremated with any of it! It is in giving that I connect with others, with the world, and with the divine. In is in giving that I feel the spirit of my daughter inside me, like a soft presence.

- Isabel Allende, Chilean novelist, journalist, and dramatist.
