message 1: by Michael (new)

Michael Tim, i am a reader 'of colour', i would suggest that as many lists expanding reading material from our dominant 'western' culture are worthwhile. thanks for putting it up. i read only in english, i live in canada, but my own reading is about %35 translations, thus read as much world literature as possible. look on my lists if you are interested.
