Read a Banned Book

I really didn't intend on my Wednesday post of last week being my last post of the week. However, hacking up a lung put a serious damper on my blogging interest. Had I blogged again last week, I would have blogged something about Banned Books Week. It is over now, but I think any week of the year is a great week to read a banned book. You can find information on banned books week and a list of banned books here.

I think I'll read: The Lord of the Rings (cause it has been about 5 years since I last read this series--entirely too long) or Winnie the Pooh.

If anything, these lists just want me to read some of these books (which is probably their evil design). I've read several of those books--the majority of which are FABULOUS. Anyone who doesn't like To Kill a Mockingbird needs his head examined.

Winnie the Pooh was banned somewhere? What was the reason? I just can't imagine what could be wrong with our dear friend Pooh Bear.

I believe the Winnie the Pooh was actually not banned but is considered a challenged book. I'm not entirely sure why but is seems that the book somehow offended the Russian government and is now considered an extremist book.
