Anonymous asked: Do you know any good literature blogs?


This list is by now means complete and I’m sure I’m missing some of my favorite blogs on here, but here are some blogs that popped up in my mind when I read your question:

How’d you manage that from LexisNexis?

I’m a law student, and one of the perks for all law students is that they get free unlimited access on both Westlaw and LexisNexis to do all their legal research. Basically they’re trying to get you to favor one over the other so when you graduate you choose their service. So they also both offer reward points to provide an incentive to use their search engine more. You get a certain amount of points for every day you make a search and then they have these trainings that you can do to get more points. There’s also contests and whatnot. And at the end you can cash in your points for stuff like gift certificates, dvds, purses… (like the stuff credit card companies offer in their incentive/rewards program). So about every 2 months I get enough points on LexisNexis to get a free $25 gift certificate to Amazon (even though I prefer Westlaw). Which helps a lot in my life goal to own as many books as possible. :D

thegirlandherbooks said: We didn’t have timetables in high school in Louisiana either. A southern thing perhaps?

This makes me feel better. I was really hoping that I wasn’t completely oblivious to the world. But knowing that you didn’t have timetables either (so is a timetable a schedule book?) makes me feel less like a crazy person. :P

Ugh. I am so, so, so jealous right now. I want to just live in that book store. I’m the worst to be asked about SK, since I haven’t read him.

Actually if my memory serves me right, Shakespeare & Co. also works as a kind of hostel and they have like 15 beds or something on top of the bookstore. So you could totally live there for one night!
