Happy Banned Books Week!
Another year, another week to piss off the people who went out of their way to have books banned by going out of our way to read them.
Right now I'm reading The Social Animal: The Hidden Sources of Love, Character, and Achievement by David Brooks with my book club. It has not been banned, but it does contain scientific findings so maybe some day it will be! I have a little over 100 pages to go, and then I will begin my banned book selection, Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. I can't wait to find out why it could have possibly been banned.
What is your banned book selection for this week? If you need a list go here.
P.S. I don't know where I got the picture from, but clearly you can see how dangerous books are.
