TSS: Don’t Like Banned Books? Don’t Have One…
I forgot to mention in my cranky post (as described by my mommy), yesterday, that this week (9/24-10/1) is ALA’s Banned Books Week!
There are all sorts of web events going on around the library and book blogging communities so check out the site and play along.
As for what I’ll be doing? I’m still posted up in my bed, a little bit sad that Gavs probably will not, in fact, make his appearance during Banned Books Week (selfish mommy) but enjoying myself, of course.
I’m not sure how I’ll be commemorating, celebrating, hating, I don’t know how to…oh, recognizing. I’m not sure how I’ll be recognizing this week but I thought I’d start the week by sharing my top five from the list of banned books. Now be careful! These are terribly bad for your mental health, or so the banners claim…
Right, so, these are just a few, not including Steinbeck and Fitzgerald (hey, it was his birthday, yesterday!) and many others. I guess it’s safe to say that one has made it as a writer when one’s books are being tossed into the bonfire like all of those martyrs and saints of old. To be great is to be misunderstood and such.
Ah, and now, you will participate by sharing your favorite or one hundred favorite banned books. Ready? Go!
