It's National Banned Books Week. So, try your hand as this quiz about banned books from Mental_Floss. And try out a new book or two! Some of my favourites are:
The Princess Bride - even funnier than the movie, "Inconceivable!" as that might be.
Hitchhiker's Guide the the Galaxy - An amusing intergallactic tale by Douglas Adams. The first of five such cynical yet hilarious books about the adventures of Arthur Dent in the far reaches of the universe.
A Wrinkle in Time - a fascinating sci-fi story I first read in middle school...it's still a fascinating tale of time travel and adventure.
Stargirl - Definitely a tear-jerker, but also a sweet, thought-provoking look at popularity vs. thinking about others in a small Mica, AZ high school.
