It is time once again for Literary Matters. Horrible, horrible literary matters. Yet today's are not too horrible for some reason, necessarily, and there are only two, which helps. 1) Here is another good thing I found thanks to the twitter account of Maud Newton: the Biblioracle! You enter the last five books you have read and John Warner, who is a human being otherwise known as the Biblioracle, will tell you what to read next. Do as the Biblioracle commands you! 2) Speaking of Maud Newton, she and I will be fellow contributors in the immediately forthcoming issue of the Oxford American. Do you know who we just found out is another fellow contributor? Sharon Stone! What? I guess we'll all find out.
