In August, Scott Hales suggested (and he is not the first) that popularizing Mormon Literature might come from flooding the bloggernacle with posts. I like the idea.
But I think there are many hurdles to this idea–principally because even those writing about Mormon literature don’t really know much of the literature. We talk about a few major titles, and ignore all the rest, without even any real assessment of what value they may have.
For most of the potential audience for Mormon Literature, the lack of knowledge of what has been written is accompanied by a lack of any need or desire for that literature. It simply doesn’t have much of a place in their lives.
