BOOKS: Shakespeare, Steven King and Sex WITH a Convenience Store...

Here are some of the best articles about books and literature I've read this week. Enjoy:

A discussion of a judge's use of Shakespeare quotes in a legal decision:

A discussion of what it means to be "literature" or "literary" through the lens of Steven King's success (whose books I must admit to having never read, but I'm intrigued by him none the less, and love the thesis of this article):

A beautiful love-letter to a convenience store with which the author has perhaps a slightly too intimate relationship:

A revealing, important, and necessary discussion of the perceptions and interactions of white readers and writers with authors from the non-dominant culture and their work:

What are you reading this week? Post in the comments below.
