Banned Books Week
Banned Books Week is back, running from today through October 2. Going back through the archives, I’m a little disappointed that I haven’t made more progress on the list as it stood in 2004. Fortunately for me, if not for society, this year’s list has drifted more toward my tastes, and I was pleasantly surprised at the inclusion of modern works such as Stephen King’s Survivor Type on one of the lists. I score much more deviant on this list of 100 banned classics, having read 20 out of the 100, with another two ready to contaminate my mind on the Nook.
While I support Banned Books Week for the attention it brings to the issue, I don’t care how much of a rebel it will make me feel like: I have no interest in reading the Twilight series.
