Breast Cancer Awareness Coffe Morning.

Yesterday saw my office raising funds for Breast Cancer Awareness month with a coffee morning and book sale. I decided to don pink hijab as I do every year and turned up to work to find everyone else had forgotten.

A colleague bought me a pink cupcake and we had a look around the table full of books people had brought in. All of the books that looked interesting I had read (A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth, White Teeth by Zadie Smith, Brick Lane by Monica Ali). The Chief Executive sneaked up behind us and asked me if I had seen anything I liked, I replied "No, I should have come here earlier" and ran off much to my colleagues amusement.

One of my colleagues reccommended the two Jodi Picoult books, I have never read anything by her, so am curious. Accordian Crimes by Annie Proulx I have read before and enjoyed so thought I would re-read and pass on.

P.S. Don't forget Pink Hijab Day next week on the 28th October 2009 which raises funds for breast cancer research.
