Libyan Book

I am reading this book called 50 short stories for the Libyan writer Ali Mustafa El Musrati (على مصطفى المصراتى) the book is in Arabic but with a lot of Libyan words which make it so much fun to read , I already read few books by El musrati and I love his style in telling the stories of the Libyan life , one of his books that I have is the Libyan proverbs book ( التعابير الشعبية الليبية) there you will find almost all the wise funny and weird Libyan proverbs and here are some proverbs I like .

عيفة وتعاف وغولة وتخاف

شن تبى يا الاعمى قاله قفة عيون

حوكى وحرايرى

يلصق على الطابونة الباردة

حصلة حمار فى زنقة ضيقة
