    I’ve often had “Always Coming Home” by Ursula LeGuin lying on my bedside table. It’s great to dip into, savor and sample; doesn’t matter too much where you open the book, and after a while I feel like I’m revisiting a known world. The texts in it are very varied - poems, legends, diary entries, game rules, social codes, history etc, about a fictional culture. Any tips for other books like this?

    I know it's not a book, but somehow when I played Myst back in the day (as well as the sequels) I was reminded of this book. In both cases it was less about a plot and more about the culture, lore, and artifacts of the natives.
