It would be wrong for me to let this week pass without taking note of Banned Book Week (September 30-October 6). There's no need for me to go over the rather incredible titles which people have tried to ban or otherwise censor. Frankly, I like attempts at censorship because they invariably broaden the audience for the book so targeted.
There are a number of ways to observe the week. One of the best, I think, would be to go read a banned book. Please do so. And by all means, thank a bookseller. And a librarian.
