I have come to a decision, loyal readers. I can’t continue blogging full-time about the foibles of my students and/or Southern living any longer. For one thing, half my students are online now, and the other half are just too exhausted to be as hilarious as my John Denver HS kids were. That being said, it’s still hysterically funny to be living in the South, but I would like this blog to take a new direction.
Since I’m an English teacher, you all know that I read more than is healthy for my sanity and livelihood. I’ve also started posting more and more snarky reviews on Amazon, and I have found the process pretty thrilling. I know, I’m a cheap date, folks. So, from here on out, I would like to transform this blog into more of a Snark Site — using the Bestseller list, your suggestions, and my own whimsical choices to explore the “literature” of today. In this endeavor, I will be aided by a new contributor, and I hope you’ll all make her feel welcome. She’s a midwestern girl living in NYC, so I think she’ll be a great foil to myself and have terrifically fun perspective to offer. I will be adding her author page soon, so check back for details.
Other new things:
Please feel free to start leaving suggestions for titles you would like to see us snark on! I have created a page just for this purpose, so get cracking. Once we choose a title, we’ll let you know on the page, and thus I encourage all my readers to now read that page rather thoroughly before making the same suggestions over and over again.
There will be a complete Title List, also, with links back to the entries. Make sure to check through this, also, before making suggestions.
My tone and style will not change. It’s still me, kids. Let me know what you think:
