Book Adventures Weekly, Issue 8

Yet another list of things to read, from sci-fi author Aliette de Bodard.

Don’t have a lot of time, but still want to read science fiction from around the world? The archived site (2009-2013) The World SF Blog has a lengthy list of science fiction stories from Israel, South Africa, Mexico, Sweden, Greece, Malaysia… and just about everywhere else.

Check out these original recipes from famous authors at BookRiot.

Interested in the debate about who reads what, and are e-books really better than print books? Library Journal’s InfoDocket shares some digital checkout stats from OverDrive.

Do you like challenging yourself to read books? Goodreads has their annual Reading Challenge, and now BookRiot has a Read Harder challenge. Readers challenge themselves to read outside their comfort zones, books “that represent experiences and places and cultures that might be different from your own.”
