In honor of Banned Books Week

It’s Banned Books Week, the time to celebrate the freedom to read and also the freedom reading can bring. There are a lot of bad things happening in this world, and censorship might seem far down on the list of things to worry about, but we should all remember that banned books have the power to shape the world.

As is fitting, a quote from our often-banned friend, Mr. Vonnegut:

“There’s only one rule that I know of, babies—God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.” -Kurt Vonnegut, God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater

Texts from My Mom

I feel like this could be a blog in itself. So now, the first installment of Texts from My Mom. She may not be a reader, but she embraces my bookish tendencies.

 

Text from Mom

 

And yes, this text did result in the purchase of a Hermione Granger wand at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. And it’s awesome.
