somaginer1996 I haven't been lucky enough to read anything by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie yet, even after watching her provocative TED talks. Setting up a reminder for myself to go pick up some books by her next...

If you're really a lover of African literature, then I suggest you read this book. I totally enjoy the way the writer uses deep proverbs in his books.

donaemeka I enjoyed this book more than 'things fall apart'. i'm not that familiar with Achebe's writing but it had a magical realism to it that i really enjoyed.

somaginer1996 I've read Notes from Underground by Dostoyevsky and enjoyed it (what is wrong with me). Putting this on my to-read list!

An excellent introductory text to Judaism. Recommended for Jews interested in learning more, non-Jews who want to understand the religion, and, like me, converts who want a good place to begin.

An excellent translation of what I would recommend to a first time Nietzsche reader. The book is organized into aphorisms by Nietzsche, in sections that cover his main ideas and develop them.

somaginer1996 I read this a while ago on my Kindle, got through half of it and thought it was amazing before realizing it was by Nietzsche. Definitely recommend to anyone who's a philosophy novice (like me)!

donaemeka I recall that I had struggled with Thus Spoke Zarathustra, but this here, Beyond Good and Evil is something different, something beyond. I always wanted to read from the Author to not be misguided...

Things Fall Apart was one of the famous literary works of a Nigerian renowned writer Chinua Achebe.
