Before the advent of the Helpfully Correcting Email—from the concerned reader who loved your book but would just like to take a moment to point out this one little thing that it’s much too late to do anything about because the thing’s already gone to press—there was the Helpfully Correcting Letter.
From an awesome listener, in response to Episode 74:
I just listened to the Bookrageous podcast on international literature (which was really fun! Thanks for that) and thought I would shoot through a few recommendations in case you want to expand the Australian section of your pie chart :) I feel like the easiest way into the literature of other countries and cultures is through genre, so that’s how I’ve structured it. All of the books below feel ‘Australian’ in different ways, either through setting or mindset (with one exception - but it was so good I had to include it!)”

"Books cannot be killed by fire. People die, but books never die. No man and no force can put thought in a concentration camp forever. No man and no force can take from the world the books that embody man’s eternal fight against tyranny. In this war, we know, books are weapons."
-Franklin D. Roosevelt
