Banned book fast approaching on starboard bow!

Banned Books Week: Ahoy! Treasure Your Freedom to Read and Get Hooked on a Banned Book, September 29 - October 6, 2007

As you can maybe tell by the silliness above -- it's a pirate thing. Mind you -- I'm not one to turn my nose at a pirate (especially the one in the picture here)...but this is kind of a weak theme this year.

I mean at least the books used on the posters are better this year...titles featured on the posters include:
I Know Why a Caged Bird Sings, by Maya Angelou
The House on Mango Street, by Sandra Cisneros
Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck
The Joy Luck Club, by Amy Tan
To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee
Adventures of Captain Underpants, by Dav Pilkey
The Giver, by Lois Lowry

But I really think they could have come up with a better theme - don't you? Maybe something along the lines of:

Banned Book Week: Read one of these and you're sure to piss off a person who has only read excerpts on the PABBIS website -- or maybe -- Banned Book Week: More thoughts, booze, drugs, and ambigious sexuality than that one kid's parent can handle!

... oh heck, I'm sure you can come up with a better theme than me.
