  1. Notes: 1 / 1 month ago 

    Finally read the clickbait piece on Slate that harps on adults who read YA. Not sure why the internet is freaking out about it. It reads like every other “put away childish books” essay out there.

    I can’t even get mad. My first response to even hearing about this thing was “i read what i want lol”. The writer of the piece predicted that:

    "I know, I know: Live and let read. Far be it from me to disrupt the ‘everyone should just read/watch/listen to whatever they like’ ethos of our era. …And if people are reading Eleanor & Park instead of watching Nashville or reading detective novels, so be it, I suppose.”

    That “I suppose”, a passive-aggressive and long-suffering sigh tacked on at the end as a purposeful flourish, makes me feel like I am talking to somebody’s disapproving aunt. I can’t get mad at this. Seriously, Slate, did you need traffic so badly? Should we crowdsource some funds for you? Anything to help, Slate, talk to us.

    BOOKS OF 2013

Currently reading Cold Days by Jim Butcher, volume 14 in the Dresden Files series. 

In the latest installment, Harry, the modern-day professional wizard of Chicago, is dealing with the fact that he stopped being a ghost only to start being the Winter Knight for Mab the fairy queen. Yeah, that’s the kind of thing that happens to Harry Dresden. No wonder there are so few wizards these days. Rough lifestyle.

I love this series of novels so much. While a lot of my writing is heavy with literary textures, I find myself wanting to spin pure entertainment like Jim Butcher does. He creates a world as enormous as real life and it is always getting bigger, bursting with life. It’s just good stuff. Butcher could be considered one of my artistic role models.

    Low-level entertainment lawyer Nick Carter thinks it’s a prank, not an alien encounter, when a redheaded mullah and a curvaceous nun show up at his office. But Frampton and Carly are highly advanced (if bumbling) extraterrestrials. And boy, do they have news.
     
    “The entire cosmos, they tell him, has been hopelessly hooked on humanity’s music ever since “Year Zero” (1977 to us), when American pop songs first reached alien ears. This addiction has driven a vast intergalactic society to commit the biggest copyright violation since the Big Bang. The resulting fines and penalties have bankrupted the whole universe. We humans suddenly own everything—and the aliens are not amused.” - Goodreads
