For this week:



    • I glad that I came across; it was mentioned on Twitter. No one can prepare for a disaster like a 9.0 magnitude quake. But certainly, Japan has done much to limit its losses in this particular case.


  1. Brilliant list – thanks for the link to A Millions essay about slavery and fiction. I’ve read Beloved by Toni Morrison and right now I’m reading Someone Knows my Name by Lawrence Hill. Since I’m British/New Zealander, my education didn’t really include much about slavery so I’m busy educating myself now. This essay was an amazing help.


    • That’s why I love the essay so much. It really does list some of the best fiction on slavery. Please keep The Known World in mind when next you are looking for a book to read. It’s such an amazing book.
