ALA Banned Books Week logoI’m a little late, but this week is the American Library Association‘s Banned Books Week. It’s a good time to buy and read a banned book or two! (what time isn’t a good time?) I’ve been wanting to re-read Fahrenheit 451 for a while, and I just discovered that my copy is missing. Probably loaned to a student somewhere, somewhen, and never returned. Which is the best way I know of to lose a book! So I get to buy a new copy. In fact, it might be time for me to indulge in a little Bradbury festival. It’s been a while, and I think I’m ready for a fond re-visiting. The ALA has a list of the 100 Most Frequently Challenged Books of 1990-2000, and it’s interesting to see that in that decade, at least, Fahrenheit didn’t make the list. Still a fun list to examine, though.
