Mid-Week Thoughts...

How is it already Wednesday?! I am in the middle of a crazy couple of weeks at work and feel like that is all I am doing: work, work, work. So, here's some thoughts...

I am on page 8 of a book I started 5 days ago. How sad is that?! And it's a good one, too!

I am outraged at the thought of someone banning Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. I think this book is amazing and I recommend it to students all the time! Honestly, let me change that. I am outraged at the though of anyone banning any book. Here's what I'd like to say to the censors:

  • If you don't like a book, don't read it
  • If you don't want your children to read a book, keep it away from them. But, be warned that this will probably just make them want to read it even more
  • Quit worrying about what other people are doing and concentrate on yourself
I am so tired this week I think I'll rent a cry-movie this weekend to let it all out. Any good suggestions?

I was so angry when I read that guy's post. How can anyone actually equate rape with porn. He really has some serious issues.

Aths--some people just need to relax! There are so many horrible things that happen in the word; to worry about what book other people are reading just seems ridiculous!
