Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and The Bookish. As the name suggests, posts feature a themed Top Ten list. To join in on the fun, you just need to link back to the creators’ blog where you can also find the topics for the upcoming weeks and post your own list. Don’t forget to take some time to check out other people’s posts as well! Read More »
Some of you may have noticed that there have been no posts from me this week. It wasn’t a planned absence, but rather a series of unfortunate events.
First I had trouble with the wi-fi at the end of last week, so I wasn’t able to finish writing my posts for this week to schedule them just in case. Then I was away for the weekend and came home sick – so sick that I spent all week in bed and basically slept through three whole days. Therefore I wasn’t able to do anything; I’m sorry for that.
I’m fine again now though, so everything will be back to normal again 🙂
The last post I had planned for Banned Books Week will follow soon as a regular discussion post as well as a new book review. I will probably also catch up on some tags and of course, there will be the memes I regularly participate in again next week: Top Ten Tuesday, WWW Wednesday and Diversity Spotlight on Thursday.
If you missed my series of posts for Banned Books Week, maybe you’d like to read those in the meantime:
As I’m sure most of you know by now, it’s Banned Books Week and I’m running a series of blog posts discussing the banning of books to celebrate the event. In the first post, on Monday, I kicked off the series with a short post about the event as well as how and where books are being banned. The second post demonstrated why the banning of books is such a problematic practice with an excursus on an ugly chapter in world history and the third post continued the series with a look at the not-so-noble nature of the reasons behind the banning of books.
While the last post focused on the bans targeting diverse content, this time I want to discuss the reasons that have to do with people in their birthday suits and what they might do together.
[tip: if you’re offended by the big bad word s-e-x, you better not read this post. Of course you may also read it and then issue a formal request at the next library to ban my post on their computer networks.] Read More »
