For my mission of reading a book from every country of the world, I am currently at Angola and reading "A General Theory of Oblivion" by José Eduardo Agualusa. I'm half-way through it and it's soooo good! Definitely recommend it (if the second half keeps up, but I have a good feeling).

I started reading A Song of Ice & Fire (source material for Game of Thrones) years ago. Book 1 was OK, & book 2 had decent intrigue, but book 2 also had a LOT of filler. Martin just dragged it out & milked it for all he could. It was originally sold to his publisher as a trilogy, then became 4 books, then 6, now 7 (because book 4 supposedly had to be split in 2).

It's a shame. The characters are done well & the dialog is good. But I'll just wait to read the summaries.

I want to write a free, copyleft book about how to thrive on low income in the USA, because all the books on personal finance give advice like "don't buy a latte every day," instead of "first, get your staples at the food bank, and *then* any other food via food stamps."

I've been writing an outline, and I need more sources. What books and links can you tell me about that are like more the food stamp example? (And please retoot!)
