rile up the zealots
turn on the lamp, make some tea
read scandalous books
Ten points to anyone who can tell me what movie the title of this post is from – WITHOUT googling it first.
So last week was Banned Books Week and I missed it because I was distracted by poop and muffins. But that’s OK, because I’m personally extending the week by a few more days, so that everyone who, like me, was distracted by things non-banned in nature (so to speak) can take a few minutes and pick up something scandalous to read to their kids.
Here’s the list of the top ten most challenged books of 2006. My guess is that there’s not one book in that list as horrifying, frightening, scandalous, or generally traumatizing as the evening news. Unless reading about two male penguins adopting a baby penguin makes you crazy. If that’s the case, you may want to stick with the news.
