Missy J (missyj333) | 222 comments For Australia, I would like to nominate, "On the Beach" by Nevil Shute.

For Ohio, I would like to nominate, "Beloved" by Toni Morrison. I read this book already, but I would like to read it again with you guys, cause it's a bit difficult (magical realism...).

Cheers!
