It's interesting. I'm currently taking a class in Nobel Literature and the question came up, do you consider the politics of the person when reading the book. Many of the Nobel prize winners for literature seemed to have been picked due to the politics. I haven't come across too many books in which the author's politic bothered me one way or the other. Oh what as sheltered life I lead! Well, the post I had planned for today all geared around a certain book, went south when I discovered some information about the author's politics that totally turned me off. Suffix it to say I won't be reading any of his books nor will I be supporting the author by highlighting his books here.
Instead I'm going to shower you with linkage love. Links to book bloggers and book sites that are interesting and informative and all start with "L"
