لماذا كان جلوسي تحت الشجرة يزعج أمي؟ أتراها كانت تخشى أن تنبت لي جذور تضرب في عمق الأرض ما يجعل عودتي إلى بلاد أبي أمراً مستحيلاً؟..ربما، ولكن، حتى الجذور لا تعني شيئاً أحياناً.
لو كنت مثل شجرة البامبو.. لا انتماء لها.. نقتطع جزءاً من ساقها.. نغرسه، بلا جذور، في أي أرض.. لا يلبث الساق طويلاً حتى تنبت له جذور جديدة.. تنمو من جديد.. في أرض جديدة.. بلا ماض.. بلا ذاكرة.. لا يلتفت إلى اختلاف الناس حول تسميته.. كاوايان في الفلبين.. خيزران في الكويت.. أو بامبو في أماكن أخرى.

Omar is an orphaned Palestinian born into chaos and compelled by forces beyond his control to find his place in the world. He only has one thing to hold onto: a love that drives him.
Nadia is young and idealistic. Her attempts to be oblivious to the bleak reality in Damascus are thwarted by her cowardly brother. Will she be able to break out of her traditional social mould to create her own destiny? 
Heart-breaking and moving, Bitter Almonds is about displacement and exile, family duty and honour, and the universal feelings of love and loss.

In April 2016, Nasser Al-Mohannadi became one of the first Qataris ever to complete a full Ironman race. He swam 3.8km, biked 180km and ran 42.2km on one of the most difficult Ironman courses in the world. It was the fulfilment of a childhood dream and the climax of 28 years of preparation and training.
In this book, Al-Mohannadi shows how he overcame childhood fears, cultural misunderstanding and physical injuries to reach his goal. Through careful planning, persistence and learning through mistakes, he achieved what seemed impossible.
His journey is that of every individual.
We all face our Ironman race, either because we want to achieve a dream or because we face difficult circumstances in our lives. As the author says: "Our life is a continuous struggle to become an Ironman and to declare victory after we have crossed the finish line."
«How to Be an Ironman» reminds us not to give up on our dreams and the things that really matter, in what has become an increasingly materialistic and demanding society. The lessons it contains apply to us all, in our personal and professional lives. «Wake up – and swim, bike and run!»

Remember how I sad that if some jerk caught me carrying a book with "diary" on the cover, they were gonna get the wrong idea? Well, that's exactly what happened today.
Now that Rodrick knows I have another journal, I'd better remember to keep this one locked up. Rodrick actually got hold of my last journal... But don't even get me started on THAT story. Even without my Rodrick problems, my summer was pretty lousy.
Whatever you do, don't ask me how I spent my summer holiday because I definitely don't want to talk about it.
