Book Porn: Bookporners Recommendations

It’s been a while since we’ve done one of our Bookporners Reading Recommendations so it’s time to do them again!

Send us your favorite books and recommendations, we want to know what great books you have discovered now. Remember: send us the title and the author of each book!

Meantime, you can check the past recs and these ones we’ve been saving for some time now:

- jujubequeen recommends Born Confused by Tanuja Desai Hidier.

- essajetticks recommends Perfume by Patrick Süskind (for the eery story), Flowering Mall by Brandon Brown (for its play with pop culture and poetry translation) and Lolita by Vladimir Nabokob (for the language).

- constelled recommends The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy, “It leaves you sighing and staring awe-struck at a single line cuz it’s written so beautifully”.

- audiemurphy1's favorite books are The Forever War by Joe Haldeman, The Tao of Pooh by Benjamin Hoff, and Stardust by Neil Gaiman.

Today I got such a cool set of books. It’s the complete set of The New Book of Knowledge, an original print from 1959 loved for a cared for by a man since he got it when he was a child. Today I bought it from him and I am very excited to have it in my care.

“To inspire ambition, to stimulate the imagination, to provide the inquiring mind with accurate information told in an interesting style, and thus lead into broader fields of knowledge such is the purpose of this work.”
