Has /lit/ ever done a secret santa book exchange?
>none of the authors in this list past the 9th grade mark
Is there something similar to webcomics but for literature? I mean like serialized stories that have frequent updates (and aren't awful fanfiction).
If so where does it exist?
Should I get the Kindle for $49 or the Kindle Paperwhite for $99. The only difference I see is the built-in light. Is it worth it?
Any thoughts on the Kindle in general?
Which is better?

/lit/-tier manga? I'd like to wait on reading heavier novels for when I actually have enough time to appreciate them fully, something I lack at the moment. So, give me your recs.
I wanna read a fuckin' book, give me a suggestion.
I have to write a descriptive essay for tomorrow.
I think it turned out well.
Thoughts and criticism welcome
A man I once knew my lord, a name that echoed boldly far after his passing, Alexander. This man like all great kings knew what laid in the hearts of his men for he was regarded as a king like none other. All, each and every one held him at the tip of their thoughts, on a pedestal of heroes, a goal to strive for.

Authors with no bad books.
Hi /lit/. First time poster. I checked the wiki and couldn't seem to find anything.
Can you recommend which Alan Watts book to buy for my girlfriend? She's not necessarily interested in Buddhism itself, but she is interested in mindfulness, spirituality, happiness and yoga.
The Way Of Zen seems to be one of the definitive Watts books. Would you recommend something different? Thanks in advance.
Haven't actually read it yet (or any Alan Watts for that matter), but you might look at This is It. I would also recommend Gary Snyder, especially if she has a particular interest in nature and it's relationship with spirituality. I would specifically recommend The Practice of the Wild and/or Turtle Island.
What is your favourite book? Mine is Endless Fun by Dane Forster Walden.
I like "Curvature of Chromatic Arches" by Tomás Pinecone.
Is this book relatable to anyone else? I'm assuming it is because it's one of the most popular books in Japan.
Do you think Japanese normies actually appreciate good literature? I've heard Murakami is ridiculously popular over there. I can't imagine any respectable Western author having that level of popularity with the general poupulation.

I've basically only read contemporary literature and modernism. What books should I start with to stop being such a pleb? Keep in mind the only cultured authors I've extensively read are Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and T.S. Eliot?
