    Rules:

    1. Books from all tendencies are allowed. Please don’t downvote something just because it’s from somebody that you dislike.
    2. However, the general rule against sectarianism still applies here. A writing that takes a potshot at others every now and then is acceptable. Outright polemics dedicated to denouncing other tendencies belong elsewhere.
    3. No linking to online book stores.
    4. No memes or videos.
