Nuttin like an old fashioned book burnin

Saturday, September 25, is the first day of Banned Books Week, a national celebration of our freedom to read; it was launched in 1982 in response to what organizers describe as "a sudden surge in the number of challenges to books in schools, bookstores, and libraries." In anticipation of Banned Books Week, GOOD scrolled through the American Library Association's list of the 100 most frequently banned or challenged books from 2000 to 2009 and selected our 10 favorite entries.

Check out the list here

There are some great titles that Ive read and some new titles Im planning on reading. Enjoy

As always she breaks my heart.

I love to listen to this woman sing. My favorite of her songs CRAZY was written by Willie Nelson of all people. At first she didn't like the song because the beat was too fast. She slowed it down and found beauty in each sad word. She died when I was three in a plane crash. Somehow she transcends time and moves me today. Listen to her beautiful voice here
