Interesting Tidbits on the Web:



Hello everyone! I hope that you had fun last week with my Author Feature of Lilly Avalon.  I hope to do more large author features in the future.  If you have someone you would like to be featured (or if you are an author and would like to be featured) please feel free to contact me. 

Anyway, as you probably are aware, it is Banned Book Week. I kicked off the event here on my blog with a post yesterday about censoring what your children read.  I really don't pay attention to what books are challenged or have been banned at some point, I don't go out seeking them to read or avoid. I simply read great books I find or are recommended to me.  With that said though, I usually forget about Banned Book week, but this month I made sure I had a plan.  I have several reviews and posts on banned books for you this week, including children's books and graphic novels, because it isn't just the classics that get challenged.  Anyway, I hope you will stop by some of the posts to discuss with me. 

Next week we will finally return to my regular posting schedule.


  1. I'm excited for what you have planned.

    1. I have been having fun these past couple of weeks with new events but I am ready to get back to my regular schedule again!
