It is my favorite week of the year. Banned Books Week. I love banned books week. I love that it encourages people to read and that it encourages people to read exactly those things that Sarah Palin says they shouldn’t.
Don’t be confused. Ms. Palin didn’t actually read the books she wanted banned. (Come on. You didn’t actually think she read, did you?)
Annie on My Mind was the big one for me growing up, the one I read because they were pulling it out of libraries. I was a contrary kid and good thing, too. I loved it. Still do. It’s still on my book shelf, that one copy I hunted down those years ago.
And anything by Mark Twain is good, too.
So, tell me. What are your favorite banned books?
