Execute Order 66

Today is an exciting day. And, no, not just for fans of musical theatre and men in kilts. My blog turns six months old today! Yes, six months ago I stopped procrastinating and finally started a banned books blog. If you’ve been reading since the beginning, thank you for your loyalty. If you’ve just stumbled across me, welcome to my little corner of this mad, enchanted forest we call the internet.

This was a good year for banned books, both here and in the theatres. The Hunger Games broke records at the box office, The Perks of Being a Wallflower blossomed into being due to the dedicated lobbying of Emma Watson (who convinced skeptics that this controversial and loaded book was worth the risk), and Les Miserables became the darling of the Academy. I commend them all and look forward to another year of challenged material bursting onto the screen.

There’s plenty to look forward to here as well. And, yes, I will get to The Lovely Bones. My apologies for not yet having that up, but work, health, and personal things (not to mention the ill-timed incapacitation of my beloved laptop, Max) have conspired against me. As always, feedback and book suggestions are more than welcome.

Here’s to six more months, my friends. Cheers.
