On kujunenud tavaks, et igal suvel panevad UNESCO kirjanduslinnad kokku ühise lugemissoovituste nimekirja, tänavu soovitas oma linnaga seotud kirjanike teoseid kokku 16 kirjanduslinna. Kuna neid soovitusi levitatakse üle kogu maailma, koostatakse nimekiri teoste ingliskeelsetest tõlgetest, lisasime aga ka märkusi selle kohta, millised neist teostest või samade autorite teistest raamatutest on võimalik lugeda eesti keeles.
