Critique me, please!

A friend and I write erotic stories together and would like some critique on a couple of them. I've submitted it to LustyLibrary.com but seems they are pretty backlogged and it's going to take a while to get posted. Can you suggest any sites where I can post these stories and get some feedback on them?

Dead Cow Wrappers For Words

I've seen a couple people recently with very nice fairly stiff leather journal covers, maybe a little smaller than 8 1/2 by 11, that hold a smaller replaceable floppy journal inside. I want one. I've looked around some, but all I can find are the cheap mass-produced ones. Does the hive mind have a lead on where to get a good-quality leather cover online or in the SF bay area?

I'd like to buy a book for my girlfriend to help her structure her ideas in academic writing.

I'd like to buy a book for my girlfriend to help her structure her ideas in academic writing. My girlfriend is a graduate student in the humanities. She is clever, erudite and rigorous, but her ability to build an argument is poor. She finds it particularly difficult to unpack a complex concept and present its constitutive parts in a logical sequence. The book I'd like to buy helps writers with these specific problems, ideally (but not necessarily) within the context of research in the humanities. [more inside]

I've seen a list of the most popular websites, and another of the most popular blogs, but for these three categories (literature, newspapers, magazines) I've found a list hard to track down. I'd like it ordered in order of popularity, but a top-ten (or top-hundred) would be fine too. Thanks! [more inside]

How do I get (free) press coverage for my boss' pet issue?

What's the best way to get some buzz going on a web article my boss asked me to write? The higher ups want to get an established columnist/journalist in the US to publish it, or comment on it. I've posted the article on our corporate site (if you must know, it's a defense of outsourcing) - so what's a guy gotta do to get some column-inches for a pet issue in an actual newspaper?

If I mess up this paper I won't graduate.

MLA citation filter: How would I go about citing a footnote in a text that is not written by the author of the text? For example, I am writing about a poem in an anthology, and I will be making use of some of the information provided in the footnotes. How would I cite those parenthetically? Google has just turned up instructions on how to do citations, and I can't seem to find anything on this in my MLA handbook.
