Tatyana Tolstaya's The Slynx is the best book I've read this year.
The list of books I want to read is, quite frankly, ridiculous.
In the Fullness of Time is a book about time travel--sort of. It's also a book about detective work--sort of. It's also about family, and technology, and generational trauma, and romance--sort of.
Shop local. Eat local. Buy local. You've heard the rallying cries, I'm sure. Local business owners, struggling to compete with large corporations who can easily sell at a loss until they drive local competition out of town, have devised a number of ways to encourage local consumption. This prompt asks you to go one step further: Read local.
July's People is a short, poignant little book about the perils of liberal claims to equality in Apartheid South Africa.
