It seems like every week there is another white man publishing another article in another high-brow publication telling us what we should and shouldn't read and, even more, feel guilty for reading. This article was written awhile ago, but people are still talking about it. The responses range from Le Guin's post in defense of genre fiction to the post by VacuousMinx in which she decides why and if she will feel guilty while reading what she reads. What we wonder is if we listen to all these professional lamenters and complainers, which books would we all be allowed to read? And how long this list of books would be, 10 books?
Another list you might be interested in is a list of 11 authors who hated the movie versions of their books.
In a world of bizarre book news, did you know that you can GET ARRESTED for not returning your borrowed Twilight book back to the library? Apparently, it's totally possible!
Almost equally disturbing, the two youngest Kardashian sisters are to write a dystopian novel. As if we need another dystopia and written by overhyped celebrities, at that. As if Modelland wasn't bad enough? Two teen girls can do it better than Tyra?
What crazy book news did we miss this week?
