Sheesh! Another banned book week has almost gone. As I was telling a friend the other day, I do try to read at least one banned book every once in awhile. Why? Think about it. If you look at any list of banned books, at one time many, many books we consider classics and must-read books, now are on the “banned” list. How do you feel about that? Do you *really* like someone telling you what you can and can’t read? I don’t! In this day and age, it astounds me (astounds me!) that we’re really still having to defend books.
So, here’s the thing. Banning books is bad, y’all. Don’t let the thought police win. Practice true freedom: Read outside the box, and read whatever the heck you want, when you want.
