- The Millions always has really interesting posts that are sort of dreamy, sort of random, but always fascinating, kind of like my teenaged-idea of what hanging out at a coffee shop would be like. Today's article is about novellas being pushed as novels.
- Beginning September 29th, an Elizabeth Gaskell blog tour! (I suppose I should wait until it gets closer, but I'm pretty excited about it!)
- Having been assigned I, Rigoberta Menchú in college, I've been particularly interested in all the controversy that's subsequently followed her; a new article in the Nation summarizes the story of Ms Menchú and her memoir.
- Author Karen Essex's blog post says it all: 'No Sex, Please, We're Literary'.
- American Scholar has a piece on the Lady Chatterly ban in the UK, made a little more human by looking at those who were involved in the trial.
- And finally, a very late but interesting article from the Guardian about modern textspeak and Victorian emblematic poetry.

Wandering Thursday, Sept 16
Another wandering Thursday since my Wednesday was full of...work. Hm, I'm not sure I approve of Working Wednesday!
