"Slate writer Ruth Graham claims concern for the complacence of Today’s Youth, but she’s really policing female authors. “Pleasure, escapism, juicy plots, and satisfying endings” are all signs of weak literature to Graham, but adult genres that cross gender lines get a pass. For Graham to acknowledge that plenty of adult genres contain these same hallmarks would be to undermine her own argument that “stretching yourself beyond the YA mark” is “akin to the excitement of graduating out of the kiddie pool.”

That “kiddie pool” includes authors like S.E. Hinton, E.L. Konigsburg, and J.K. Rowling, who turned to young adult fiction using initials in place of a (female) name that could have hurt their career. Women writers are reviewed far less in mainstream literary review publications than male writers, are read less than male writers, and are more likely to be blamed for any perceived flaws in their genres. When Graham argues that “maudlin drama” demeans YA, she overlooks the ways in which female authors are barred from full ownership of “serious” literature. When Graham argues that YA “presents the teenage perspective in a fundamentally uncritical way,” she fails to acknowledge that even if this were accurate, YA writers have spent decades fighting for a space where they can write from uncritical perspectives." - "Your attacks on YA lit only make us more powerful" (via dailydot)

"Too many books?" I believe the phrase you’re looking for is "not enough bookshelves".
