To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading? “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury….a classic that I have NEVER read before and the premise is SO intriguing. And I really love the idea that a book about banning and burning books was once banned. Were people really THAT afraid of children learning to think for themselves?

What did you recently finish reading? “Every time I go home, I break out into relatives” and “Married beyond recognition”, both by Sylvia Harney…a 2 books in 1 book. I got this book from the library’s annual sale because of the funny titles. They were written in the late 80’s so some of the differences in the times were kind of comedic but I enjoyed them. I think the main points of the books were ones that were lasting.

What do you think you’ll read next? probably “Valley of the Dolls” by Jacqueline Susanne(not sure if I spelled that right). One of my friends mentioned how it was one of her favorite books and girls used to carry it around hidden by paper bags because of the content when it first came out. Well…that idea just made me want to see what this was about! For some reason, if a book is banned or controversial, it kind of makes me want to check it out all the more. It’s just this feeling of “What are they worried about me reading?”

(Speaking of old classics, I checked out 2 other ones, one which was banned in the past and the other, I believe, was controversial. Both I have never read. “The Catcher in the Rye” and “Slaughterhouse Five”….then I got 2 other books which aren’t classics that you will see mentioned in later WWW Wednesday’s!…I’m in a library checking out frenzy!)

Speaking of BANNED books, what are YOUR opinions? Does the word BANNED make you curious as well? Do you have any previously banned books that you love that you would like to share with me? Any you would like to recommend? I would love to hear! 

Have a great reading day! 🙂

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
