The library, and step on it!

the-library-and-step-on-it:

Finally I can reveal the project I’ve been working on these last couple of months. My darling followers, I am so proud to present to you:
THE NARRATOLOGIST
http://www.thenarratologist.com/
What is it?
It is a website where I will post book reviews, study advice, reading lists, and longer articles on whatever strikes my fancy. I’m still transferring material from The Library and Step On It! to this new website, so some posts may look familiar, but from now on this is where I will post this kind of material.
I am also working on a glossary so that if you come across an author or literary term you don’t know, you can immediately click on a link and get a brief overview.
But what about the-library-and-step-on-it?
The Library and Step On It! will still exist in its current form and I will keep posting quotes, links to articles, and Photoshop creations here. However, the longer text posts will be put up on The Narratologist. I will post a link on The Library and Step On It! as well so you can keep track of new material. The same goes for my Goodreads account: it will still exist and I will still use it, but I will now start posting links to the website. If you only want to get the links to new Narratologist posts without all the extra stuff, you can follow the Narratologist Tumblr.
One more thing!
You can also follow The Narratologist on Facebook! The page will be updated whenever there is a new post or when I see a picture/video/link that I like and want to share with you, and you can also ask me your questions there.
And finally:
I am very, very excited about this project and I would never have had the courage to create something like this if it hadn’t been for the support of the followers of The Library and Step On It. Your questions, discussions, and words of encouragement over the years have meant the world to me, so from the bottom of my heart: thank you.
If you have any questions/comments/suggestions for any of these platforms, please let me know. This is for you.
Special thanks to:Sanne van Let, the social media guru, IT wizard, and all-around clever person who somehow managed to distill my disconnected thoughts (“something about books”) into a coherent concept.Sarah Meers for the header design and her encyclopaedic knowledge of fonts and icons.

One more time for the cheap seats (and those of you who live in a different time zone)!

We’ve been working very hard on The Official Blog of Brilliance all day, and I have great news: just a few more final touches and then we are ready go online!

Expect a promotional post with more information and a link to the website very, very soon!

This is so exciting you guys.

I have already spent a good thirty minutes staring at my bookcase, trying to decide what to read next. I’ve let you decide before and that worked out really well, so I’m going to ask for you advice again!

What should I read next?

1. Wilhelm Meister’s Apprenticeship, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
2. The King’s Speech, Mark Logue and Peter Conradi
3. Reaper Man, Terry Pratchett
4. A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens
5. Charlotte Brontë, Elizabeth Gaskell

This just in: I’ve officially got permission to take a class on Shakespeare next semester that includes a trip to London and Stratford-upon-Avon for lectures and performances!

I’ve just remembered that I do listen to a lot of podcasts these days, so maybe I should see if there are some good literary podcasts out there.

Do you guys have any recommendations?

I suddenly remembered that someone sent me this question ages ago (perhaps even years ago) that I want to pass on to you guys because I’m really curious to see what your answers are going to be.

Which (reasonably) contemporary book do you think is going to stand the test of time and become a literary classic in the future?

(Well, I mean, I did finish up the Comparative Literature research MA, but I still have to get my teaching degree. One down, one to go.)

Looking at my list of literary heroines again, I suddenly realised that almost of my picks are white (Katniss Everdeen excepted).

This is a gross oversight that needs to be fixed, so I’m calling all of you up to tell me who your favourite literary heroine of colour is!

Thank you all for responding to my life-changing reads question!

I love hearing your stories (and have read every single one of them so far), so keep them coming!
