hello...  
Salaam alaikum. So I'm curious if anyone knows of any books to read for thse who are interested in Islam. I've studied Arabic for 4 years (on and off) and I know a lot of the basics of Islam, so I'm looking for something a little more in depth, or alternatively, books about someone's journey to Islam.

So far I'm planning on ordering:

1. Islam: Our Choice
2. Lang's Struggling to Surrender

Any other suggestions? Books or websites, or just...anything?

Have you read Daughters of Another Path? It's about a mother whose daughter accepts Islam. I believe her daughter accepted Islam in the 80's; when Islam was fairly new to America (in a sense). It's a very well written book. The author also includes thoughts by other Muslim women who have accepted Islam. How their parents dealt with it and so on. I read it in a couple of hours; couldn't put it down!
