The State of Modern "Literature"

If you'd like to wade through this Bloomberg.com article, you'll see a striking difference between the kinds of books I cover here at The Book Den and what's passing for literature nowadays. Granted, you may not be that interested in "teen chick lit" ("Good grief, I sure hope you're not!") but just a few paragraphs are enough to illustrate the miserable state of modern publishing.

And, of course, in so doing, this article emphasizes why The Book Den is here -- to assist and encourage readers who, like us, are looking for quality literature to enrich, ennoble, and invigorate our lives.
