Some literature news from yesterday:
- My favorite literature site, Bookslut, got some love from the Chicago Tribune. Elder refers to Jessa as “snarky”, which is exactly the word I would use. He even quotes one of my favorite entries in which Jessa says the following: Plus, I don’t know if you know this, but his books suck. Not even bad enough to be trashy. I tried to read The Law of Enclosures until I noticed I was using the cover to try to saw through my wrist. Me thinks the boy is bitter.
Snarky, honest, and boy do I love her!
- A couple of years ago I ran across this book, Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison. While not high brow reading, I have to admit that this series has made me laugh harder than almost anything else I have ever read. I guess, given the titles of all the books, I should not be surprised that someone has tried to ban them from public and school libraries. They are innocent and just damn funny. The other books in this series (in order of course) are: One the Bright Side, Now I am the Girlfriend of a Sex God; Knocked Out By My Nunga-Nungas; Dancing In My Nuddy-Pants; and Away Laughing on a Fast Camel
