Dictionary Definition : Laura: Also known as "Solveig", her internet pseudonym, this female specimen of Homo Sapiens founded the Literary Cabinet world. One can spot "Laura," by the fun she has grading papers and drinking coffee, with triple coffee consumption ever since she quit smoking. Like another species, Homo Sapiens Zarasahanous, she enjoys picking at the extreme Twilight fans. This specimen is particularly fond of procrastinating, as most of the other species of the Literary Cabinet Universe are.

Dictionary Definition : Kelsey-- Frequently called "Kels," this female specimen of Homo Sapiens belongs to the Literary Cabinet universe. Although she is a young member, she has shown her maturity to be above other species, sometimes. "Kelsey" can behave quite crazy in her own right. One of her most noticeable traits is paranoia and knowledge of trolls.

It's not the ideal situation, of course, fueling the hype that irks me. Though, I'm thinking it's the lesser of two evils: a literature-ignorant Twilight mania or a better-read Twilight mania. I'll take the latter. At least kids will be reading something decent, even if it bugs me that it'll be associated, and even good literature has to be baited for kids to read it.

Good point, Kelsey... But imagining a nice, clean, fresh copy of "Pride and Prejudice" marked with the stain of Twilight - the mere thought makes me shudder. pale

The idea that teenagers need books to be dumbed down in the first place irritates me the most, perhaps even more than classics being presented in Twilight fashion. It may not seem like it, but there are some teenagers who aren't idiotic.

Dictionary Definition : Rodent - Homo Rodentiensis is a typical LC creature. Always ready to laugh about stupidity, this being has long occupied a special moderator status on the LC. As one of the very few LC creatures who actually can get and keep a partner, she is the object of constant envy. Though madness is not part of the average Rodents characteristics, this particular feature can at times be subject to change, especially when striken by severe sleep deprivation.

Is there anyone out there who wants to read Austen purely because she is Jane freaking Austen? I really hope so. I want kids to read these works because the works are good, not because Edward Cullen gives them four stars.


Makes me despair.
