Banned Book Week

Next week is Banned Book Week and in celebration I will be reading And Tango Makes Three, the cutest and most challenged picture book based on the true story of Roy and Silo, two male penguins in New York's Central Park Zoo.

What will you be reading - or what's your favorite yet commonly challenged book?

*Special thanks to Ruth who brought the awesome picture to my attention!

I ordered this book from my local bookstore (they were out of stock) so I can read it to my kids. I was surprised to see how many books I've read to them are on the banned books list. Most I'm not even sure why they're banned!

Five Random Things About Suzie

1. I drink so much orange soda, it's probably running through my veins. I've been known to go through a twelve pack of diet sunkist in a day.

2. I'm legitimately nocturnal (or a vampire). I will be so exhausted at two pm that I'm falling asleep standing up - it has happened before, at Six Flags no less - but as soon as the sun goes down I'm wide awake.

3. I have a gorgeous unused $6000 Reem Acra wedding dress hanging in my closet, and it showed up on my doorstep the same day my (now ex) fiance broke up with me. And thank God for that. I wouldn't have wanted to waste that dress on him.

4. Social anxiety plagues me daily. I write a script and practice in front of the mirror when I have to make a phone call, but most people who interact with me have no idea how nervous I am (or perhaps they lie) because I've worked so hard to try to overcome it.

5. I'm actually worried that I will never love my children (when I do have them in the far off future) as much as I love my dogs. I just like animals better than people - they're sweet and innocent and soft and furry - is that so wrong?
