It's giveaway day for many of the blogs participating in Armchair BEA, and oh how I wish this were one of them. Unfortunately, this week is nuts so I wasn't able to get myself properly organized in time. I work in a school and with the academic year ending next week, things have been crazy busy. However! I do hope you'll subscribe or follow me on Twitter if you don't already because I do plan on having giveaways this summer. There are many books in my possession at the moment that are in need of new homes. So stay tuned!
General Literary Fiction. It's a term that gets thrown around a lot in the book and publishing world, but I have yet to interact with a definition that encompasses this genre satisfactorily. These books don't necessarily have to take place in a contemporary setting. They can have aspects of an other (sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal, magical realism, etc.). They do tend to take on life's BIG QUESTIONS and I feel like in many cases, it's a good idea to have a dictionary nearby.
But again, I'm a fairly educated person and I still feel a little bit off balance when this term gets thrown into the mix. Am I the only one? Today's post is a short one because I'm hoping to explore other people's blogs and find some answers.
Comments welcome, and, as always, happy reading!
