In a piece dated April 7th, Julie Just, the editor of the children's section of The New York Times Book Review, sums up some of the blog talk about the March 12th Naomi Wolf essay on the Gossip Girls, A-List, and Clique books. That's kinda neat, but I wish Julie Just cited more bloggers who had actually read some of the books in question. I began to wonder: is it possible few adults read the series? That mostly only kids have cracked their covers? Without consulting us, their parents, librarians, teachers, reviewers, and whatevers? Shocking.
This is getting all a little, I don't know, post-modern. A blog writing about a paper writing about blogs who've written about the paper. Goodness. My head is spinning. It's time for "The Sopranos," anyway. That will be relaxing. Right?
