Marieke | 155 comments these look fantastic, Asmah! will these be books for February and March?

Betty (olderthan18) | 3660 comments I guess these can be put into a poll along with Education By Stone: Selected Poems by João Cabral de Melo Neto, Gabriela, Clove and Cinnamon by Jorge Amado, and some others. The Brazilian literature will follow Brazil in mid-March.

The next Peruvian books The Bad Girl and Deep Rivers were just polled. So much to explore.
