The Reading List, 4/30/2014

I share a lot of links on Twitter and Facebook that I don’t blog about because I don’t have much to add. The reading list is a periodic feature where I share those links with my blog audience too. Of course, you’re still welcome to follow me on Twitter.

    These are always so interesting and powerful. Thank you for posting these.

    In re: Boise book giveaway that prompted an irate parent to call the police. It never ceases to baffle me that people don’t seem to realize that prohibition (“Thou shalt not read books with ‘dirty’ words!”) often—and not just among teenagers—increases curiosity about the thing prohibited.

    Not to mention the sadness, of course. Alexie is a fantastic and important writer. The book banners are missing out.

    Still learning,

    Robert
