It is "Banned Book Week." I've written on this topic before so won't go into my opinion details again. However, I will celebrate reading by listing my favorite books. I have read a plethora of books in my adulthood and find reading my great escape. No money spent in a bookstore is wasted. Of all the books I have read, the following always stay with me:
Gone With the Wind (read it 5 times)
Atlas Shrugged (read it 3 times)
Brave New World
Winds of War/War and Rememberance
Of Mice and Men
To Kill a Mockingbird
In Cold Blood
Sons and Lovers
The Crucible (technically a play)
The Promise/The Chosen
Something Wicked This Way Comes
Others may come to mind after I publish this but these are ones that impacted me in some way.
Anyway, here's to reading --- banned or otherwise. Viva the first amendment!
