Nearly forgot…it’s Banned Books Week

I don’t know this slipped my mind–I blame work! But this week is Banned Books Week.  It’s amazing to think that even now we are still dealing with book banning and people claiming books are dangerous simply because it doesn’t gel with their vision of the world. Often the books being banned are books that help children’s imagination soar–books that have helped children learn to love reading again like the Harry Potter series and Twilight (even if I didn’t like the series, I have met tons of girls who adore it and who claimed it sparked their interest in reading).
