  1. I am constantly amazed at the books people challenge, but then I have to pinch myself and offer thanks that we live in a country where people are free to speak up and challenge a book, an idea, a writing.

    Lots of food for thought this week....I feel some 'banned books' post coming up. Thanks for encouraging us to celebrate not only the freedom to read but the freedom to think.
