I was asked by the YRead blog (the BYU Bookstore's new blog) to do a guest post on my thoughts on the need for American literature in lieu of the holiday weekend. Although the blog itself is new, it is already an ideal place to visit for people who are booky or people who need to be encouraged to become booky.
American literature is my very favorite genre. Although I enjoyed my British, French and Russian lit classes, there is nothing as fresh or beautiful as American.
I ended up writing something very personal and honest about American literature drawn from my own past and love of books. Feel free to read my post here.
And I hope your fourth of July was as sparkly as mine was.
