Pina Colada I'm a bit funny about trying new authors and new genres but this sounds like a good read. I'm adding it to my wish list to remind me to download a sample chapter to see if it grabs me.

A short story collection about the childhood of a single character, Del Jordan, as she is growing up in a small Canadian town.

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.

Purple Hibiscus is a novel written by Ngozi Adichie. The novel was centred around the postcolonial era Nigeria, a country beset by political instability and economic difficulties.

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.
