Now that it’s the second day of Banned Books Week, I’m posting some pictures of our TAB activities from Thursday night:

Anyway, don’t let the caution tape scare you away–banned books are nothing to be afraid of!

Personally, I consider the most ironic book banning of all time to be the ban on Fahrenheit 451.  Yes, somebody banned a book about banning books that said that banning books was bad.  I believe it had to do with the fact that the Bible was one of the books banned in the story.  So the apparent solution to the existence of a book about banning books mentioning the hypothetical ban of a book you believe in?  Banning it, of course, if you’re some people.

I’ll leave you with a quote from the author, Ray Bradbury:

Happy (dangerous) reading!
