Feel free to tell us about the books you loved, or the ones you didn't, start a discussion, post links to blogs, reviews, or articles that you think everyone needs to read--anything that fits your definition of literature goes, including song lyrics, poetry, film scripts, and plays! One caveat: this is not a self-promoting group; it is meant to champion the work of other writers, so we look forward to hearing what you think we need to read! Most important, please have fun!
I'm a bit new to the group moderator biz, so if you think I've overlooked something, let me know and I'll do my best to come through.
