I am continuing a series (inspired by Electric Literature) where I post important links for writers and readers on Mondays. They may be old links or new links, but they’ll be ones that I find the most interesting or helpful. If there are any particular topics you’d like to read about, please feel free to suggest them in a comment on this post.

The holidays are stressful but buying books as gifts is not. If you’re looking to put some literary cheer in the hands of your friends and family (something I highly recommend, even and especially for reluctant readers), then you’ve come to the right place. To celebrate the recently announced winners of the Goodreads Choice Awards and the soon to be announced winners of The *Book Shimmy* Awards, I’ve compiled a bunch of “Best Books of 2014” lists (but not all, because that’s a lot) for your convenience.
Many have heard of the genre versus literary fiction debate. It’s old news — not even news. So why should we still be interested in it?
