Re: Query for Beyond Paradise

I'm a criminal justice student and the big problem I see here is that in a self defense case (especially with domestic violence) the abusee can (I hate to put it like this) get away with murder. What I mean is that there are self defense exceptions to the law. So, your mc wouldn't have to enter a di...

Re: Why do classics become classics?

I'm reading a lot of these "classics" this semester. I'm a Literature major and it isn't the first time I've asked myself the same question. I still don't have an answer, but it also goes to high school with the ole' "What makes the popular kids popular?" I think you'll find it interesting that ther...

Re: Concerns about the darkness in recent YA

I came across the article below in the Guardian and found it interesting. Maybe the darkness is appealing because, let's face it, for many teens just about anything can bring about the end of the world. I remember feeling that way sometimes. Also, I think at that age you have that feeling of invinci...

Jooble

I got an email from a guy who works at Jooble. Even though he attempted to make it look personal, it clearly wasn't and I was asked to link to the website. He said if he didn't get bloggers to do this he could lose his job. I spammed the email, but has anyone else gotten anything like this?

Re: Classics vs. YA/Current Fiction in the HS English Classroom

I'm a senior in college, Literature major and am taking a class called English and American Novel. This is taught by a professor who says "we could spend twenty years on this stuff", but if he was given that long he'd say "we could spend forty years on this stuff".
