The #spbkchat list

This is a new feature for the South Pacific Book Chat, wherein we make a post after the chat every week, featuring a list of books/authors/websites mentioned during the course of the chat.

It'll be organised like this:

topic of the night books

website links with book lists

authors mentioned

off-topic books that came up in the chat

I hope that's clear for everyone - lol.

First up, is Burma. It was an interesting chat,  although a little bit short. World literature is something that I'm conscious of ... not  having read enough of so I was interested to see what Burma-related books came up. (Yes, I'll probably ramble like this every week on this post.)

Anyway! The books/authors/links that came up in the Burma chat:

Books about/referencing Burma:
Under the Dragon: A Journey Through Burma, by Rory MacLean
