Witch of Portobello

Mr. Paulo Coelho, the renowned author of "The Alchemist" will be in Dubai on the 8-9 April to launch his new book.
The Arab cover is a bit boring i think. Much prefer the US cover.

My first encounter with "The Alchemist" was frustrating to say the least. I thought it was pretentious. I shelved it half way through. Then, by a stroke of luck, i packed it on my trip here last year. The thing about such book is you must read it in an unrushed manner. Full of profound gems. Love it. Hopefully, the new material is just as inspiring.

Don't think it's light reading then. To cease the pressure of traveling, read a lifestyle magazine.
